Aaron Ramsey talks through clash with Edinson Cavani

Arsenal vs PSG Steven Gerard Aaron Ramsey Edinson Cavani Arsenal PSG Champions League match

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and Liverpool FC legend Steven Gerrard also felt that the Arsenal midfielder was over-reacting over the incident.

A slight scuffled ensued with the Arsenal players surrounding the Uruguayan as he eventually threw the ball away.

There is no great shame in Arsene Wenger's men being behind PSG by virtue of an inferior head-to-head record after two draws between the sides - 1-1 in the French capital in September and 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

A draw against one of Europe's top clubs is nothing to be ashamed about but Arsenal could have had so much more.

Arsenal's 2-2 draw at home puts a serious dent in their quest to finish first in the group with the Gunners now second.

Arsenal were close to securing qualification for the last 16 as group winners thanks to a penalty goal from Giroud and an own goal from Verratti, which cancelled out Cavani's opener.

Watch as Arsenal's Olivier Giroud gives PSG's Edinson Cavani a little squeeze on the neck. "I think if he was a foreign player we'd be going mad", said Ferdinand after the match in the studio. "Arsenal were very fortunate not to lose that game", Wright said, as quoted by the Mirror. Tonight my concern is that we were 2-1 up and allowed them to come back at us. "We gave them lots of opportunities which is why we conceded the corner and then conceded the goal". "We pressed hard in the last 10 minutes of the first half and first 15 or 20 minutes of the second half, and they were in trouble because they lost so many balls in their own half". We lack something in our creativity but we got a point.
