- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Same old crappy first half performance. Surely we can't keep raising our game and getting away with wins. It might cost us today

Auba anonymous and Mustafi poor again. We miss Monreal solidarity and threat overlapping on the left big time.

Hope Emery pulls something out the bag again.

Mustafi is so clueless, really could have been 2 penalties, cant wait for Laurent to come back and bench him for good.

I thought Sokratis was back? I'm sure he'd be a better partner for Holding.

Aubameyang puts us 2 - 1 up.
Was it a Lacazette handball though.

Definite hand ball but also a foul on lacazette who was having his shirt pulled. Feel sorry for Palace. They don't deserve this.

Over the line for sure, just not a fan of the cheating/handball, so we caught a break.

Just hope Mustafi doesn't F it up for us.

Like Stephan's aggression.

Xhaka and mustafi are the 2 players who need to be pushed out of the first team so it's not surprising they are the 2 who make silly mistakes for the penalties.

Settle for a point.

Palace deserved at least a point.

Wanted more from Ozil today after his previous performance. 2-2 a fair result but expected us to manage the 2-1 lead better.

Yeah draw is not that bad. We didnt play well (Maybe Europa hangover, 3games in 6days). Palace were the better team. Think Zaha dived there but we got lucky with our second too,

The pitch is atrocious. Set pieces were the way to go. Did all to not lose this. U need a solid defense to grind out such games. They had 16 shots to our 6. This a game where you need dribblers as pitch is not conducive to slick moves. We need our own Sane or Mane. And of course a solid defense, both of which require getting new players. I'm happy with the point, expected is to lose before a ball was kicked considering the physicality of those players. This was the first test and emery did ok. Subs were good as well. Within a fully healthy back 4, we may well have won it

No actual contact, Xhaka stuck the leg but removed it well before zaha could get contact. Torreira motm for me. Overall, not just for arsenal

Hmm Xhaka has been pretty good all season. He actually scored the equaliser so contributed to the point. He's being forced to play left back and had no support vs Zaha for that foul. Still although soft pen, was quite naive.

Mustafi i fully agree. Lichtsteiner also looked a big liability when he came on. Hope Bellerin and Monreal return next week

We'll be killed vs Liverpool with Xhaka and Lichtsteiner in full back positions.

Why bomb forward like that and leave defense exposed, Xhaka was conned into by Zaha.

We never deserved to win that game, Mustafi has to go, just dumb.

Weird leaving Iwobi on the whole game, can not understand that.

CP's 2nd penalty was a result of Lacazette poor lob pass to the middle of the park when we had control of the ball in CP's half. A sloppy and dangerous pass which gave CP the counter attack. I would not fault Xhaka for the trip on Zaha. It was a mismatch to start with and Xhaka is not a left back. Lacazette works very hard up front closing down on the opposition but his passing is sub standard and his decision making can be better. More lethal in front of goal than Welbeck but time to give Welbeck a run in the striker position and Lacazette a rest.

Just checked the Xhaka pen, and it was a con, bit like Rooney cheating on Sol, we woz robbed

It was clumsy and poor defending from Xhaka.
He is a poor replacement for a fullback.
God help us if he plays fullback against Liverpool.

we never really got going did we. We didn't deserve a win. Palace had like 16 attempts to our 7?

Ozil didn't turn up at all but so did most of them. Jaded perhaps?

Hate to admit it but we play better with Torreira - Xhaka in midfield.

Zaha cheated for the pen, clearly left his foot in. Everybody can see that. I think our fans will let him know that in the reverse fixture.
