Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool Vote for Player Ratings & MOTM!

Arsenal delivered a determined, energetic performance but couldn't finish any of the numerous chances we created, and it looked like all of that effort and verve would go to waste when Milner punished us on the hour after Leno dove to deflect a cross in. In previous years, we might have crumbled to dust and been swept away. This is a new Arsenal now, and, sure enough, we fought back and Lacazette delivered a stunning equaliser, beating Allison to Iwobi's pass, cutting back upfield, and curling his shot in. It's a result that yours truly would have glady taken ahead of the match but feels a touch disappointing given how we played. Then again, we more than answered any critics or doubters as our undefeated streak continutes. Let's get down to the poll!

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!
