Hello and welcome to live coverage of Patrick Vieira’s press conference after his Crystal Palace drew 2-2 against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Pierre-Emereick Aubameyang had opened the scoring for the hosts inside the first ten minutes, though it was the Eagles who finished the first half on top with a number of probing chances.

After the break Christian Benteke sent the away supporters into a frenzy as he managed to equalise, slotting past Rasmdale from just inside the box after good work from Jordan Ayew to win the ball off Thomas Partey.

Odsonne Edouard then scored the winner not long after from a similar phase of play, with Conor Gallagher this time winning the ball in his own half before driving up the pitch with Michael Olise and finding Edouard.

However, Alexandre Lacazette then pulled Arsenal back from defeat with virtually the last kick of the game as he buried the ball past Guaita from close range following a frenzy in the box.

It’s now the second time in three matches that Palace have been winning a game with second remaining only to concede late on, with this now their fifth draw of the Premier League seaon.
