Arsene Wenger has claimed that a lack of attacking options played a part in his side's 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby.

The Gunners were far from their best against their rivals on Sunday and needed a late Kieran Gibbs goal to salvage a point at the Emirates Stadium after Harry Kane had given Spurs the lead.

With the likes of Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey sidelined through injury, Wenger has said that he was glad to have taken a share of the spoils.

"I had very limited offensive options on the bench. Overall it worked," the Frenchman told the London Evening Standard.

"We have 10 players out. I hope during the international break we do not lose more, but we should get some back just after the break.

" Arsenal face West Bromwich Albion when the Premier League resumes in a fortnight.
