Former Arsenal striker John Hartson believes Edinson Cavani is the man to thank for the Gunners as they rescued a point at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Uruguayan gave PSG the lead in Tuesday night’s opening game of the Champions League season, but missed a host of big chances to increase the home side’s lead.
Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has been hailed for helping to keep Cavani at bay with a series of fine saves, but Hartson feels the forward should have done better.

‘The man Arsenal have to thank on the night was Cavani,’ Hartson told BT Sport.
‘On another night, he gets a hat-trick. He leads the line very well, he makes good runs.
‘For the amount of good chances he gets… he normally needs three chances to score a goal. If he was a natural, more comfortable in front of goal… I think he’d be one of the best strikers in the world.
‘He’s not composed. He’s a top centre forward around the world but if he was a more natural goalscorer it would put millions on his head.’
