Tottenham ‘turned a corner’ by holding Arsenal to a draw, insists Kevin Wimmer

Tottenham “turned a corner” by holding Arsenal to a 1-1 draw in the north London derby, according to Kevin Wimmer.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have struggled for form in recent weeks and are without a win in seven games since beating Manchester City at the start of October.

The north Londoners’ indifferent run of results has seen them drop outside the Premier League top four while they face a battle to qualify for the Champions League knock-out stages, having lost both of their home games at Wembley.

But Wimmer remains upbeat and is adamant securing a point at the Emirates Stadium proves that Spurs are heading in the right direction.

“We’ve tried to turn things around after recent games and we did well,” Wimmer told the club’s official website.

“For me, it’s always a good feeling to be in the starting 11, especially a game like this. I always try to give my best and we all wanted to win.

“We obviously got the draw, but we now have some time until the next game and I think we’ve turned the corner.

“We’re moving in the right direction and everyone believes we can continue to improve.

“Now we have some time while the internationals are on, then we’ll do everything to get the three points against West Ham,” he added.

The north London derby represented Wimmer’s first start of the season and the Austria international endured a difficult afternoon, receiving an early yellow card and scoring an own goal.

But the 23-year-old displayed an impressive mindset to bounce back in the second half and believes Spurs were unfortunate not to come out on top.

“Obviously to score an own goal is a bad feeling. At first, you are disappointed but once the game gets started again you just want to turn it around. That’s certainly my mentality.

“It was a typical derby, lots of intensity and everyone tried their best. We tried to get the three points and we were unlucky.”
