Kieran Gibbs says he was glad to rescue a point for Arsenal after his strike sealed a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side took a 32nd-minute lead after England international Harry Kane slotted a finish past Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Arsene Wenger raised eyebrows when he brought on left-back Gibbs for striker Joel Campbell in the second half at Emirates Stadium.

But the move paid dividends after the England defender poked a finish past Spurs shot stopper Hugo Lloris following Mesut Ozil’s cross.

And Gibbs, who hadn’t scored since a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa in 2012, was delighted to secure a point for second-placed Arsenal.

Arsenal are level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City.
