Spurs fans react on Twitter to Kaboul performance v Arsenal: 'Immense'

Tottenham Hotspur supporters also described their captain as 'outstanding' and 'a rock' in defence.

It's fair to say Spurs fans were happy to leave the Emirates Stadium with a point.

Tottenham's last victory at Arsenal came four years ago, so a draw is certainly something supporters would have considered a result before the game.

For skipper Younes Kaboul, however, a point was 'disappointing.' Indeed, the 28-year-old thought his side's work rate merited a victory.

“We worked very hard, we played very well, especially as we were defending ever so well," he told NBC Sports after the game.

“We did the most difficult thing in scoring but then they pushed and they scored. We feel a bit disappointed as we felt we could have taken three points. I’m very proud of my team.”

Perhaps Kaboul's optimism stemmed from the fact that he himself put in a superb performance. The centre-back has received plenty of criticism for his start to the season but looked back to his best on Saturday.

Former Spurs boss Ozzy Ardiles certainly thought so, anyway:

And Ardiles wasn't the only one to say so. Indeed, Tottenham fans were delighted with their new captain, who was described by the White Hart Lane faithful as 'immense,' 'outstanding' and 'a rock' in defence against the Gunners.
