Crystal Palace on Saturday drew 1-1 with 10-man Arsenal in the Premier League here at the Selhurst Park.
Arsenal drew first blood with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, who then sent off for a reckless challenge on Max Meyer.
Crystal Palace levelled the proceedings minutes after the restart.
Before this fixture, Arsenal had lost just one of their last 14 away games against Crystal Palace, who are unbeaten in their last two meetings against the Gunners.
The Gunners enjoyed great start when Aubameyang slotted home from Lacazette’s through ball, with just 12 minutes on the clock.
But, nine minutes after the restart, Palace equalised through top scorer Jordan Ayew, who was named man of the match.
“It was a poor first half, but second half we were the better team and deserved to equalise. I’m a striker, so I’ll take anything,” Ayew said after the game.
Mikel Arteta said that Auba had no intentions to harm Meyer and hoped that German forward’s injury isn’t serious.
“Knowing Auba, there’s no intention to make such a tackle. Hopefully, Meyer hasn’t been injured. We are sorry for that,” said Arteta.
Arsenal will now face Sheffield United in the Premier League, next Saturday.
