Arsenal Finally Stumble As Defensive Lapses Show Up Again
Arsenal’s eleven games winning run was finally halted at Selhurst Park after two Luka Milivojevic penalties gave Crystal Palace a share of the spoils.
Crystal Palace went ahead in the first half from the spot after a rash tackle from Mustafi. Arsenal, as usual woke up in the second half and drew level through a spectacular Granit Xhaka freekick. Arsenal then went ahead through a controversial Aubameyang goal after Lacazette handled the ball in the area.
When Arsenal thought they were about the see out the game, Palace were given another Penalty after what looked like a Zaha dive. The penalty was given and Luka Milivojevic coolly dispatched to send Selhurst Park into wild celebration.
The results puts Arsenal four points behind leaders Liverpool who the Gunners face next week at the Emirates.
Arsenal can’t afford a slow start or too many lack of concentration if they don’t want to find themselves seven points behind Liverpool next week.
