DrThanks to a goal in the fifth minute of injury time, Arsenal barely prevented defeat in the London City derby. Against local rivals Crystal Palace, trained by former Arsenal professional Patrick Vieira, the Gunners scored 2: 2 (1: 0) – substitute Alexandre Lacazette (90 + 5) saved Arsenal by winning a lucky point.
Arsenal jumped 11 points to occupy 12th place, eight points behind leaders Chelsea. Palace (eight points) in fourteenth place.
Former Bundesliga top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (eighth) put team manager Mikel Arteta’s side in the lead early on. But after the end of the first half, Christian Benteke (50) equalized before Odson Edward (73) led the guests to the lead.
When everything pointed to Arsenal’s first defeat since the end of August, Frenchman Lacazette was stabbed.
