Arsenal were ultimately rewarded for some brilliant attacking play in an enthralling game at Selhurst Park on Thursday night.

Shkodran Mustafi gave scored the opener in a dominant first-half performance, but the momentum shifted soon after the restart when Andros Townsend scored what had seemed an unlikely equaliser.

All of a sudden, the Gunners needed to dig in, and stand firm in the face of the home side's renewed confidence.

But two superbly-taken goals in the space of five minutes from Alexis Sanchez put Arsenal back in charge.

James Tomkins headed a late goal from a corner, to ensure a nervy period of injury-time, but the Gunners were good value for the win.

Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere’s wonderful long pass through to Sanchez for that third goal is a reminder of what Arsenal fans had missed.
