Leandro Trossard emerged from the bench to secure the equalizer for Arsenal.

Speaking to TNT Sports, Tuchel commented, “It was a tough match against a very strong opponent with an incredible home crowd today. The atmosphere was electric in favor of the home team.

“We showed resilience after falling behind 1-0, with a very commendable reaction. Overall, it was a great team effort. We even struck the post.

“However, I believe the referee shied away from rightfully awarding a penalty today in a rather chaotic and perplexing situation.

“He confessed on the pitch that he observed the incident but deemed the quarter-final stage insufficient grounds to grant a penalty. He acknowledged seeing the mistake made by the player.”
