The contest between Crystal Palace and Arsenal ends all square at Selhurst Park as Jordan Ayew's strike cancelled out Pierre-Emerick Aubamenyang's opener for the Gunners, who ended the match with 10 men when the Gabonese was sent off for a poor challenge on Max Meyer. Mikel Arteta's men enjoyed a bright start to the game and took a deserved lead through Aubameyang, providing a neat finish following a throughball from Alexandre Lacazette. Palace came back into the game in the second half as Ayew's strike was deflected into the net by David Luiz. The visitors then saw their skipper dismissed for a lunge on Meyer. Aubameyang was initially given a yellow card by referee Paul Tierney, but the decision was overturned by VAR. Even though they were playing with reduced numbers, the Gunners could have regained the lead when Nicolas Pepe's strike hit the post, while Lacazette was unable to convert the rebound. Both sides earn a share of the spoils, which is probably the fair result.
