Crystal Palace Ends Arsenal’s Winning Streak

It was Luka Milivojevic who scored two penalties as Crystal Palace came from behind to draw 2-2 against Arsenal and end Unai Emery’s 11-match winning run.

Palace took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Milivojevic sent Bernd Leno the wrong way from the penalty spot after Shkodran Mustafi took Cheikhou Kouyate down in the area.

Granit Xhaka got the Gunners back on level terms when his free-kick from the edge of the area screamed into the top corner with Wayne Hennessey getting the slightest touch.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang nudged Arsenal back in front on 56 minutes when he poked home at the back post.

However, Crystal Palace were awarded another penalty with only seven minutes left after makeshift left-back Granit Xhaka brought down Wilfried Zaha and Milivojevic converted the resulting spot-kick.
