Mikel Arteta’s men are pull off remarkable comeback at London stadium as they secure a late draw in mouthwatering encounter with West Ham United on Sunday evening.
On-loan United winger Jesse Lingard put the homeside in front with a brilliant strike from the edge of the penalty area before Jerrod Bowen made it two while Mikel Arteta’s side failed to organise themselves for a free-kick.
Thomas Soucek made it three just after the half-hour but went from hero to villain when he deflected Alexandre Lacazette’s powerful effort beyond ex-Gunners goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski for 3-1.
Mikel Arteta’s side started the second-half just as well, with Lacazette forcing Issa Diop to clear off his line, and on the hour forced another goal. As with the first, Calum Chambers assisted with a cross from the right, and for the second time in successive games, Dawson scored an own goal.
After heavy pressure, the Gunners equaliser eventually came with less than ten minutes to go when Alexandre Lacazette headed in a cross from Nicolas Pepe. This is one of the games of the season, and a showcase of everything that has been good and bad about both West Ham United and Arsenal.
