Alexandre Lacazette celebrates scoring Arsenal’s equaliser

Substitute Alexandre Lacazette struck with the last kick of the game to give Arsenal a rollercoatser 2-2 home draw with Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday after the visitors had fought back from a goal down.

Superb second-half goals from Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard had turned the match on its head after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Arsenal an early lead but Palace were denied a win as Lacazette netted at the death.

Aubameyang tapped in an eighth-minute rebound from close range after visiting goalkeeper Vicente Guaita parried a Nicolas Pepe shot but falling behind only spurred the visitors into action at the Emirates Stadium.

Benteke levelled in the 50th minute as he unleashed a scorcher into the bottom corner from 15 metres and after both sides missed chances in end-to-end action, Edouard struck with an effort of the highest quality.

The French forward, who joined Palace from Celtic during the close-season, capped a flowing breakaway move in the 73rd with a fierce shot from the edge of the penalty area which crashed in off the underside of the bar.

When Palace seemed home and dry, they failed to clear a corner deep into stoppage time and Lacazette kept his wits in a goal-mouth scramble to drill in the equaliser past Guaita. Follow all the reaction from the Emirates Stadium below, viver.

Arsenal 2 – 2 Crystal Palace

That ending will feel like a win for Arsenal but they’ve got a lot of areas that need addressing.

They made two errors leading to goals in a Premier League game for the first time since April 2019 vs Wolves and for the first time at the Emirates since December 2017 vs Man Utd.

On top of that, they stopped playing aggressive football after around 20 minutes and only kicked back into life with the introduction of Alexandre Lacazette and Palace’s change to a back five.

Reaction from Lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette spoke to Sky Sports after the game to talk about his last minute equaliser and the role of the fans in lifting the energy of the players. Ele disse:

At the end we could draw, the main thing was to avoid losing. We wanted to win obviously, we started well we stopped playing. This is something we need to work on in the future and to hope to come back to the top of the league.

"O [feeling] is relief for me because it’s my first goal of the season. I need to work hard to get more minutes and I try to enjoy it as much as I can when I’m on the pitch.

"Ele [Arteta] told us that when we play well the fans are with us and for the opponent it is harder. So we always need to be 100% trying to win to get the crowd with us. When the fans are with us it brings an energy to the players. We saw that against Tottenham in the derby, they were with us for 90 minutos. We need to give them what they want and in return they’ll support us.”

Mikel Arteta will be a happy, happy man. Bringing on Alexandre Lacazette was a fantastic move. The striker immediately upped the tempo and caused problems around the box. If anyone was going to score it was going to be him.

Patrick Vieira meanwhile will be gutted. He was just seconds away from a winning return to Arsenal.

88 minutos: OFF THE BAR! How has Tierney missed?! Pepe swings a cross in from the right wing and Lacazette gets a touch to the ball to flick it over to Tierney on the left side of the area. He takes a touch and then smokes a shot at goal going for power over placement. Guaita seems to get a little touch on the ball which rattles into the underside of the crossbar and bounces away from goal!

Arsenal 1 – 2 Crystal Palace

85 minutos: Crystal Palace have nine men behind the ball with just one man up the pitch in Christian Benteke. They’re set up with a back five now and are allowing Arsenal to have the ball.

It’s a dangerous tactic to invite pressure and Arsenal almost break them down as Martinelli darts inside from the right and flicks a pass over to Aubameyang. He’s put under pressure by Guehi and only gets a touch to the dropping ball which sends it wide of the nearest post.
