Game Report

Highlights

Arsenal surrendered a two goal lead - allowing Crystal Palace to come back and earn a point. The Gunners looked to be cruising with two early goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos and David Luiz but they capitulated in a game marred by VAR controversy.

Detail

Arsenal couldn't have wished for a better start to the game. Nicolas Pepe's corners cause chaos in the visiting box - allowing Sokratis and Luiz to both get on the scoresheet.

The hosts looked in complete control until Wilfried Zaha went down under a challenge from Calum Chambers in the box. The referee initially booked the winger for diving but VAR reversed the decision and Luka Milivojevic scored from the spot.

Crystal Palace came out with confidence for the second half and got their equaliser. James McArthur stood up a cross from the left and Jordan Ayew pulled off Luiz to head in at the back-post.

The home fans vented their frustration by sarcastically cheering Granit Xhaka as he trudged off to be substituted. The club captain reacted angrily in an ugly moment for all involved.

Arsenal thought they'd won it at the end when Sokratis fired in again from a corner but VAR intervened again. Chambers was contentiously adjudged to have committed a foul in the build-up.

Summary

Another performance which summed up Arsenal's often brittle character and the sideshow with Xhaka is another unwanted headache for Unai Emery. Crystal Palace preyed on those weaknesses to claim a well earned point.
