Watch Nketiah score dramatic late goal for Arsenal as Mikel Arteta reacts to weekend result
Eddie Nketiah scored a dramatic late equaliser as Arsenal rescued a 1-1 draw against struggling Fulham on Sunday afternoon.
Fulham defended resolutely against the Gunners and were hoping for one chance to fall their way, and it did midway through the second half when Gabriel Magalhaes brought down Mario Lemina inside the penalty area. The incident survived a VAR review for offside and Josh Maja stepped up to emphatically convert the penalty
However, after repelling nearly everything the Gunners threw at them with a superb defensive performance, Fulham buckled in the final stages of seven minutes of injury-time, Nketiah poking home from close range to rescue a 1-1 draw.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was quoted on the BBC: “We started really well, controlling the game and creating chances, scoring a goal that was disallowed, in a very disappointing way, we kept going and didn’t allow any shots on target and suddenly we concede a penalty and the game changes completely.

“We took risks in the right way, we could have scored three or four, we totally deserved to win the match but put ourselves in a difficult position.
“We have to just focus on the boys playing away in Europe and arriving here with the desire to go all the way to the 97th, 98th minute.”
Arsenal fans will not be happy to see this performance from the Gunners, they were very lucky to get a point today.
