North London side Arsenal overcame Takehiro Tomiyasu’s harsh second-half sending-off as Martin Odegaard’s well-taken penalty was enough to secure a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

It led to a period of sustained pressure on Aaron Ramsdale’s goal late on with Tyrick Mitchell firing over but the hosts were unable to unlock Arsenal’s stubborn defense as Mikel Arteta’s men ground out a victory which moves them level on points with Brighton and Manchester City at the Premier League summit.
