|Alexandre Lacazette in action for Arsenal last night|

The second half was even more intense and Arsenal took the lead again through a Marcos Rojo own goal after a mixup with Alexandre Lacazette only for Jesse Lingard to equalize just after 14 seconds. Many more chances were seen thereafter with Arsenal seeing the best of them, but they weren’t enough to get another goal in the back of the net.
