Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Penalty Should Have Been Retaken

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Penalty Should Have Been Retaken

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had the perfect opportunity to win the North London Derby on Saturday afternoon after a controversial penalty was given in the final minutes of the game.

Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez brushed the Gabon international inside the area and to the bemusement of many, referee Anthony Taylor awarded a spot-kick.

Aubameyang, who has scored more goals in London derbies this season than anyone else, looked confident as he stepped up, but he couldn't convert.

Hugo Lloris made a great save to deny the 29-year-old, palming away to his right hand side, and Spurs went on to pick up a point at Wembley.

Replays clearly show that Tottenham centre-back Jan Vertonghen was inside the box before Aubameyang took the spot-kick.

In what is likely to be his last appearance at Wembley in an Arsenal shirt, Aaron Ramsey opened the scoring, showing great composure to round Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and knock it in the back of the net.

To celebrate, the Welshman pointed at the turf, appearing to shout: "This is my f***ing house" as Arsenal went 1-0 up in the derby.

Harry Kane equalised in the second half after Shkodran Mustafi brought him down in the penalty box, but Aubemyang couldn't convert his spot-kick in the final minutes for all three points.

Thoughts on these controversial decisions?
