Christian Eriksen on Oxlade goal: Arsenal got lucky!

Christian Eriksen and Soldado Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur playmaker has played down Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's equaliser by claiming the Gunners got off lightly.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur fought to a draw on Saturday, September 27 thanks to an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain strike that canceled out an earlier goal from Nacer Chadli in front of a 60,000 capacity crowd at the Emirates Stadium.

Oxlade oft got the better of full back Danny Rose and, while his crossing left much to be desired, the Englishman shot himself into Arsenal lore as he ensured the Gunners did not lose on home soil to their arch rivals.

However, his goal has been dubbed "lucky" by creative Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The Denmark international, who played a part in Chadli's goal as it was he who won the possession which started the move, is quoted by the club's official website to have said: "All the crosses [Arsenal] had were cleared apart from the goal, which we were unlucky on."

He continued: "It was a lucky shot and the ball fell for Oxlade-Chamberlain, which hopefully it won’t next time.

"In the end it’s a result and a performance we can be pretty happy with," Eriksen concluded.
