Arsenal recorded an entertaining 3-2 victory over London rivals Crystal Palace on Thursday and with it set a Premier League record.
The Gunners took the lead through Shkodran Mustafi’s well-placed reactive shot. But Andros Townsend pulled things level shortly after half-time. Alexis Sanchez then scored a fine double. First blasting in from Alexandre Lacazette’s layoff and then bringing down a sumptuous Wilshere pass putting it past Julian.
James Tomkins made a nervy last-few minutes with his 89th minute corner goal for Crystal but Arsenal held on. It meant they racked up their 120th London derby victory, which is more than any other side in Premier League history
