Jan Vertonghen admitted that he was disappointed Tottenham Hotspur couldn’t end a tough week with three points after a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in Sunday’s north London derby.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side edged into a first-half lead courtesy of Harry Kane’s 32nd-minute opener at Emirates Stadium as the England striker scored his eighth goal in five games.

However, unlikely Arsenal hero Kieran Gibbs equalised with 13 minutes remaining after the out-of-favour left-back managed to prod Mesut Ozil’s cross past Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

But Belgium international Vertonghen was bitterly disappointed that Spurs couldn’t hold on to secure three points against rivals Arsenal.

It's been a hard but good week for us. Shame we couldn't finish it with a win!

Tottenham remain unbeaten since the opening day of the Premier League season after an 11-game run without defeat.

Vertonghen’s centre-half partner Tony Alderweireld was pleased with a battling point against Arsene Wenger’s side at The Emirates.

After a tough week. Great performance from the boys! Proud of the team! #Coys 🔵⚪️

Alderweireld has become a key part of the Tottenham defence following his £11.5m move to White Hart Lane from Atletico Madrid in the summer.
