Arsenal drew 2-2 at home to ten-man Fulham FC in the Premier League on Saturday, denying Mikel Arteta’s side a provisional top spot in the table.

Fulham struck gold in 57 seconds when Andreas Pereira capitalized on a loose back pass from Bukayo Saka and the midfielder saw goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale well off his line, who pulled the trigger from 30 yards out to score and silence the home crowd.

But Arsenal won a penalty after the hour for a foul on Fabio Vieira and Saka retaliated with a commanding penalty in the pouring rain. Arsenal made it 2-1 two minutes later when Vieira fired in a cross for Eddie Nketiah.

Fulham were reduced to 10 men when Calvin Bassey received a second yellow card for a cynical foul on Nketiah to prevent a counter-attack, but they equalized in the 87th minute when Joao Palhinha fired in from a corner and stuff saved a point.
