Arsenal defender William Saliba has been caught giving a bizarre reaction after his teammate Gabriel Jesus missed a golden chance in the North London derby last weekend.
The Gunners took the lead after 26 minutes thanks in part to Bukayo Saka who cut inside past Destiny Udogie and fired a shot across goal in what has become a trademark effort of his. Instead of curling into the far corner, it struck the leg of Christian Romero and flew past Guglielmo Vicario into the back of the net for 1-0.
However, Heung-Min Son levelled the scores just before halftime after James Maddison managed to brush past Saka on the byline and cut it back for the South Korean international to sweep home. It wouldn't take long for Mikel Arteta's side to regain the lead, again thanks to Romero's intervention.
VAR decided an effort from Ben White had been blocked by the hand of the Argentinian defender and Saka stepped up to score his first of the game from the penalty spot. But their lead would last just 22 seconds thanks to a crucial mistake from Jorginho who gave the ball away to Maddison on the restart, leading to Son finding his brace to make it 2-2.
Despite a flurry of late chances for both sides, the game played out to a draw with both sides having to settle for a point. After the match, Arteta highlighted the chances his side missed that could've won them the game.
«In big games both boxes are so important and you have to put those chances away. We didn’t and we also had some errors like the one we concede (from).
