Mikel Arteta on Saka foul, Partey’s mistake and Palace draw – .

Mikel Arteta is set to face the press after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace in the Premier League in the Emirates.
A disappointing evening started well for the Gunners who took the lead after just seven minutes when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang jumped on a Vincente Guaita save on a Nicolas Pepe shot.

Mikel Arteta’s side then seemed to be in control and had high intensity at the start of the match, but as the match progressed, Palace started to grow in the match. They were however fortunate enough to enter the break with 11 men after James McArthur’s challenge against Bukayo Saka.

Patrick Vieira’s team were then rewarded for their improvements with a goal from Christian Benteke after a Thomas Partey error at the start of the second half.

The Eagles then threatened to cause major upheaval when Odsonne Edouard fired a shot under the bar where Aaron Ramsdale and Ben White could have done better.

However, substitute Alexandre Lacazette was on hand to come home in the dying seconds after a bit of freaking out from the penalty area on a corner.
