Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has reacted to striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty miss in the Gunners’ 1-1 draw with Tottenhman Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.

Aubameyang saw his penalty saved by Hugo Lloris in the second half of the match.

Emery said Aubameyang’s penalty miss was “not a mistake but one action”.

However, a goal from Aaron Ramsey and a strike from Harry Kane gave both teams one point each at Wembley.

“I spoke with him [Aubameyang],” Emery was quoted by Metro UK as saying at post-match press conference.

“He had 35 minutes to help us for the victory. “He did this action and got the penalty. After, you can score or not. It’s not a mistake, it’s one action.

“The same with Laca. He had good chances, but no problem. Today we create some good chances but today it’s not enough.”

“Two months ago I said VAR is coming to help the referees,” Emery added.

“Today for me the referees had a big personality, but it’s not enough to make the best decisions in difficult actions in the box.

“VAR is coming to help them. In 90 minutes if you create chances and score, you can win. “I think we played today with a big spirit, tactically we adapted well.”
