TWO penalties by Luka Milivojevic earned Crystal Palace a battling 2-2 draw at home to high-flying Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.
Palace captain Milivojevic, who missed a penalty at Everton last week, converted one just before half-time, after Shkodran Mustafi tripped Cheikh Kouyate.

It was the South London side’s first goal at home in five games this season. Granit Xhaka equalised with a fierce free kick early in the second half and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a controversial second for Arsenal five minutes later.
Milivojevic’s second penalty six minutes from time earned Palace a point to move Roy Hodgson’s team up to 14th. Arsenal stayed fourth but ended a run of 11 successive wins in all competitions and lost ground on London rivals Chelsea, who won at Burnley.
