Arsenal score a 95th-minute equaliser to earn a point against Crystal Palace, after it looked like the visitors would walk away with all three. Arsenal led 1-0 at the break thanks to Aubameyang’s early strike, but Palace responded in the second period, with Benteke levelling the game, before Edouard fired the visitors into the lead and made it 2-1. It looked like Palace would then see the game out and claim the win, but Lacazette popped up in stoppage time with a vital equaliser to make it 2-2.

Arsenal make it five games unbeaten, but they’ve now drawn their last two and sit 12th in the table. Meanwhile Palace remain without a win in four games, having drawn their last three and they remain 14th. Arsenal will welcome Aston Villa next time out, while Palace return to Selhurst Park and they’ll face Newcastle United.
