By Score More

In a match that ended in a 2-2 draw, Arsenal dropped points for the first time this season against a 10-man Fulham side.

The Gunners stumbled out of the gate as Andreas Pereira capitalized on Bukayo Saka’s errant pass, catching Aaron Ramsdale off-guard and finding the net in the opening minute at the Emirates.

Despite Fulham’s solid defense holding firm for over 70 minutes, their resistance was eventually shattered when Saka equalized from the penalty spot.

A sudden burst of action saw the game’s momentum shift in a span of two minutes as substitute Eddie Nketiah expertly converted Fabio Vieira’s precise cross, seemingly turning the tide in Arsenal’s favor.

Fulham’s task was made even tougher when Calvin Bassey received his second yellow card, leading to a red card and a subsequent dismissal from the field.

However, displaying remarkable determination, the 10-man Fulham squad managed to secure a point as Joao Palhinha calmly swept the ball home from a corner kick just three minutes before the final whistle.
