Unfortunate Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer marked his first Premier League start of the campaign with an own goal in Sunday's 1-1 draw with rivals Arsenal.

But despite putting the ball in the wrong net, the Austrian earned plaudits from Twitter users for the quality of his 42nd-minute header.

Fans of other clubs were also impressed.

Wimmer did not let his first-half own goal affect him, however, and impressed many Spurs fans with his overall performance.
