Palace 2-2 Arsenal—Vote for Player Ratings & MOTM!

It was a scruffy, fiesty one today as Crystal Palace scored their first goal at Selhurst Park from a penalty on Mustafi's clumsy challenge in the box. However, Arsenal, true to form, took the second half when Xhaka scored from a set-piece just outside the Palace area and Aubameyang poked him from a corner-kick. However, Martin Atkinson saw fit to award a second penalty, this one against Xhaka—the contact was slight, but Zaha had been getting hacked down all day, and Atkinson was feeling generous. In the end, we were lucky that Aubameyang's goal stood (after Lacazette's oustretched hand grazed it), and it's a shame that our winning streak is now reduced to an unbeaten streak. I hope we don't regret these dropped points in May. Eh. Let's get to the poll!
