It was a sluggish start from Arsenal as they conceded a goal by Hangeland in the 35th minute. It was Hangeland’s first goal in 3 seasons! Crystal Palace were gleeful. How were they to know that gunner glory was lurking around the corner?
Koscielny equalised for the Gunners in the 45th minute (the end of the first half). Then after the sending off of Crystal Palace’s Puncheon, Ramsey put in the winning goal in the 90th minute (the end of the second half). What is it with Arsenal and their late minute miracles?
Arsenal held a whopping 76% possession in their first game of the season. This match marked Arsenal’s 100th league win at the Emirates! Perhaps today’s events could foreshadow the later dominance of the team in red.
