Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson believes that the Gunners were the better team against Paris Saint-Germain and their 2-2 draw against the Parisians did not do them any justice. The Gunners had gone behind in the first-half through Edinson Cavani, but equalised before half time through Olivier Giroud, who converted from the spot after Alexis Sanchez was brought down in the penalty box.
The Gunners took the lead in the second half through an own goal by Marco Verratti, but were pegged back yet again owing to a fortuitous goal by Lucas Moura. The visitors had two more chances to take the lead, but Cavani failed to find the net despite being one on one with the keeper.
However, Jenkinson has insisted that it was very hard for the team to accept the draw, as they played extremely well until PSG equalised. The draw means that PSG have moved to the top of the group on away goals and will remain there should they match Arsenal's result in the final group match of the Champions League.
"You see Cavani's chance at the end with his head... they could have nicked it as well. But I think we were the stronger team so it's a bit disappointing when you haven't won. We've done well to come back from 1-0 down and then go 2-1 up. The header is a bit unfortunate with the way it's ended up going in the back of the net. But that's football," Jenkinson told Arsenal's official website.
"It's frustrating we didn't win - it feels a bit like a defeat. Everyone's a bit flat but in the grand scheme of things it's not a terrible result. We just have to go to Basel and get a good result. I think PSG are one of the better teams in the world. Personally, I felt for the most part today we were the better team, so we've shown that we can play against these top sides and we can dominate them at times. We've got to take the positives. They're a good team and a draw is not a terrible result," he added.
