Tottenham Hotspur drew 2-2 with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, coming from behind twice to take a point away from the Emirates.

An own goal from Cristian Romero gave Mikel Arteta’s side the lead, before Son Heung-min equalised for the away side. Bukayo Saka then put Arsenal ahead again, thanks to a penalty conceded by Romero, before Spurs’ South Korean star again came to the rescue.

After the match, Pedro Porro spoke to the Spanish media and the first question was whether he was happy with the point against Arsenal.

Plaza Deportivo quote the defender as saying: “We came to play our game, to do what we had been doing since the season began. We wanted to win, we got a point which is also good and now it’s time to continue next week when we have another important game.”

Tottenham face Liverpool at the weekend in what will be another tough task for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

Porro was asked about the manager’s impact, with it put to him that fans and players both seem especially happy this season.

To that, he responded: “It looks like we are happy. When you have happy players, it shows differently on the pitch. Ange is a great coach, in the time we have worked with him, he has that mentality that the players also have. Together we are on a good path.”

Postecoglou should therefore be able to help Porro prove his doubters wrong, something which seems important to the player.

Asked about his recent comments on criticism from pundits, Porro said: “You focus more on playing. Criticism bothers you, because for me it is the first time I play here, it is a very different league, the best league in the world. You try to accept the criticism and move on. Working in silence, showing that I am a player who can give a lot and being humble. Make those people who have criticised you wrong.”
