Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his side's spirit earned them a draw against Everton at Goodison Park today.

Wenger watched as his Arsenal team slipped behind to two Everton goals in the first half of their Premier League clash, heading in 2-0 behind at the break.

And it appeared Roberto Martinez's men were set for all three points, which would have followed up their 3-0 win at the ground against Arsenal last season.

But the Gunners grabbed a goal back through midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the 83rd minute, before Olivier Giroud completed the comeback by striking in the 90th minute.


Arsenal had earned a point, leaving Wenger delighted at the comeback his men had launched.


"We have a great response with complete desire to come back and the spirit was fantastic", the Frenchman was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"In the end we got back to 2-2 and we got a strong point but a deserved one if you look at the chances we had, especially in the second half. We came back very late but our spirit got us a point.

"It shows the belief and the resilience is there. The second goal was offside but we took it on the chin and came back", Wenger concluded.
