"The game was a bit insane".
"He is one of the best keepers in the world and doesn't have to prove anything".
"Hugo is one of the best in the world, he does not need to show that, he can not prove nothing but the finger always points at the big players, like Hugo or if Harry misses big chances".
Spurs went behind after 16 minutes but managed to break down a tight Arsenal defence to earn the point.
Kane had been half a yard offside but it was missed by the assistant, leaving Spurs' top goalscorer to step up and send Leno the wrong way with a confidently-taken spot kick.

"He doesn't see that [Harry] Kane challenges for the ball, and because he doesn't see that, he doesn't flag offside".
"It's very hard for them to watch in the moment one action like that".
He added: "I prepared myself to (start all three)".
"I am proud of our players".
"Yeah but not only bad night Wednesday the whole team, not only Hugo", he said.
"He has the quality to help us in our style to play. Sometimes we focus on a few actions", Pochettino said.
"Some situations are hard for referees to handle, to manage, we can't think that it will be the key for football to be fair", he said.
But he added that no amount of technology would ever completely put an end to arguments over refereeing decisions.
"Of course the key will be how we use the VAR".
