Lacazette saves Arsenal

Lacazette saves Arsenal

A goal from Alexandre Lacazette in added time saved a point for Arsenal from Mikel Arteta, who signed a gray match against Crystal Palace (2-2)

The ‘Gunner’ team was shipwrecked in the second half, with a comeback from Palace sponsored by defensive errors by Arsenal itself and that Lacazette canceled in the 95th minute.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang had overtaken the ‘Gunners’ in the first half, pushing the ball into the net after a save from Vicente Guaita to Nicolás Pepé, but they collapsed in the second half.

First, due to a loss in the exit of the ball that the veteran Christian Benteke took advantage of to face Gabriel, ‘portray him’ and beat Aaron Ramsdale from below. It was precisely the Arsenal goalkeeper who prevented a bigger win, with two saves to shots from Conor Gallagher and Jordan Ayew.

But the goal, the best of his, could not do anything in the second goal for Palace, born from a corner in favor of Arsenal. Sambi Lokonga fell asleep in midfield and Palace mounted the counterattack with three men, leaving Odsonne Edouard against the goalkeeper. The star signing of Patrick Vieira’s team this season defined with a dry shot that hit a stick.

Arsenal had even the wood against and in the last minutes the crossbar rejected a shot from point-blank range by Kieran Tierney that was the equalizer. The miracle had to wait until the 95th minute, when, with all Arsenal in the Palace area, Lacazette took advantage of a rejection by Guaita to achieve the final 2-2.
