Why Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty vs Tottenham should have been retaken

Mauricio Pochettino

Pochettino has never won a trophy as a manager

LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 10: Christian Eriksen of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates scoring the 2nd Tottenham Hotspur goal with Harry Winks of Tottenham Hotspur during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City at Wembley Stadium on February 10, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

Spurs saw their slim chances of winning the trophy take a huge blow in the space of eight days, suffering losses to Burnley and Chelsea before drawing with Arsenal.

Arsenal came close to doubling their lead when they again caught Spurs on the break and Lloris was forced into a smart stop from Alex Iwobi's curling effort. "I can only play Aubameyang".

Spurs pushed for a victor, but it was Arsenal who missed out on glory in the closing stages with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having a spot kick saved by Hugo Lloris.

The Tar Heels proceed to foul, giving Shelton Mitchell a pair of free throws, which he makes, leaving 10 seconds in the game. Cam Johnson added 19 points and Luke Maye had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Tar Heels (24-5, 14-2 ACC).

The game could easily have panned out differently had it not been for a brilliant double save by Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno on the stroke of half-time.

However, they come up against a Tottenham side who have won five of their last seven at home.

Mauricio Pochettino's side got a stroke of luck when they were awarded a penalty in the 74th minute after Shkodran Mustafi had barged Harry Kane in the back inside the area.

"It was a fantastic game, exciting game with great atmosphere with two teams that wanted to play and win the game". But of course, I am so happy with the character, the personality and the way that in the end, we played. It's also that we, all, everybody, believe that we can do it.
