Palace’s fightback pleases Hodgson
PREMIER LEAGUE: Roy Hodgson praised his Crystal Palace players’ response in falling behind to a goal that should not have stood by recovering to draw 2-2 at home to Arsenal.
Luka Milivojevic’s second penalty secured a valuable point and denied Arsenal a 12th successive victory.
He had earlier given them the lead before watching Granit Xhaka’s fine free-kick, and then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s finish following Alexandre Lacazette’s clear handball.
Hodgson said: “It wasn’t exactly a touch of the hand, but one which helped the ball to the player who scored.
“It was tremendous that the players came back from that.”
