Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has apologised for his penalty miss during the North London Derby Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.
The penalty miss was crucial as Arsenal had to settle for a 1-1 draw at the home of their fierce rivals.
Gabonese international Aubameyang came on as a second-half substitute for Alexandre Lacazette before he was brought down by Tottenham Hotspur defender Davidson Sanchez on the stroke of full-time.
Aubameyang had the resulting 89th-minute penalty saved by Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris before Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen blocked the ball with the former Borussia Dortmund striker set to score the rebound.
He apologised for the penalty miss via a post from his official Instagram handle before adding that he was proud of his team’s effort against North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey scored the opening goal of the game in the 16th minute and the Gunners held on to that advantage for the majority of the game before Gunners defender Skhrodan Mustafi brought down Harry Kane in the Arsenal box.
Harry Kane dispatched the resulting penalty to level the game for his team but Aubameyang could not replicate the same feat in the closing stages of the game as Arsenal missed out on two valuable points in the race for a top-four finish.
