and fought out a frenetic draw at , with Jesse Lingard scoring a sucker-punch equaliser for the hosts 74 seconds after the Gunners had regained the lead.

Lingard nipped in to exploit a mix-up between and goalkeeper Bernd Leno straight from the kick-off after bundled in following Marcos Rojo’s mistake.

Before the break, Shkodran Mustafi’s header had squirmed through ’s gloves to open the scoring for the Gunners, via goalline technology.

That early lead lasted only four minutes, with sweeping home Ander Herrera’s cross.

Both team had chances in the final 20 minutes but, with heavyweight boxer in the crowd, neither could land a knockout punch.

’s brilliant volley from an acute angle was rightly ruled out for offside as the visitors came closest to a winner.
