Arsenal news LIVE: Neville slams White and Gabriel’s defending, Crystal Palace draw reaction, Jovic transfer LATEST

GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS

Alexandre Lacazette scored a last-gasp equaliser to rescue a point for Arsenal against Crystal Palace.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave the Gunners an early lead as they welcomed former captain Patrick Vieira back to North London.

However, Palace hit a second-half double through Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard for a 2-1 lead.

The Eagles were just moments away from sealing a famous win at the Emirates.

But Lacazette produced the goods at the death to salvage a draw for Mikel Arteta’s fortunate side.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will be sweating over the fitness of Bukayo Saka after he limped off during the game.

The winger was the subject of a wild lunge from James McArthur, who only received a yellow card for his dangerous play.

And Gunners fans will be praying their star man will be OK.

Finally, former Arsenal youngster Daniel Oyegoke admits he’s not surprised by Saka’s incredible rise for club and country.

He told SunSport: “Bukayo treated me like a brother. He looked after me. He still does it now.

“We are from a similar area and we still have a good relationship. What a guy he is.

“He is a leader in his own way. He leads by example. He doesn’t have a lot to say but when he did come and talk to me, it resonated with me.

“Smith Rowe was also the one the coaches used to say we should watch closely and aspire to be like because of what he was and is doing. Now it just shows.”
