Palhinha stuns Arsenal as 10-player Fulham earn late point

Joao Palhinha stunned Arsenal with a late equaliser as 10-player Fulham came back to claim a dramatic draw at the Emirates and end their hosts' perfect start to the Premier League season.

Fulham may have failed to record their first league win at Arsenal but they will surely take heart from the hard-earned point they take back to west London, particularly after being humbled by rivals Brentford last time out.

The Gunners' overriding feeling will be one of frustration after failing to move above Tottenham and into top spot in the Premier League, with sloppy errors undermining Mikel Arteta's side.

Bukayo Saka inadvertently set up Andreas Pereira for Fulham's opener within the first minute and Palhinha was handed the freedom of the penalty area to score the visitors' equaliser.

Saka made amends for his error by scoring a second-half penalty and Eddie Nketiah put the hosts ahead in controversial fashion - with Arsenal not putting the ball out despite an injury to Calvin Bassey, who was later sent off - but the Gunners could not see out the win.
