Arsenal will be unhappy with a draw but at least they have prevented a loss, which was happening on a regular basis before the Boxing Day win over Chelsea.
Bernd Leno - 8 - A bystander for most of the first half, the number one was called into action after 42 minutes to deny Christian Benteke. A superb stop.
Hector Bellerin - 7 - Up and down that right flank, Bellerin was making his presence known. His runs in behind the defence were causing issues for Palace.
Rob Holding - 7 - His confidence was up after signing a new contract. Holding was extremely vocal and was organising the defence.
David Luiz - 6 - The Brazilian was returning to the side in the absence of Pablo Mari. It was a huge chance for him to show Arteta he is the man for the job.
Ainsley Maitland Niles - 4 - Playing in an unfamiliar role at left wing-back, the number 15 looked shaky in the first half an hour.
Granit Xhaka - 9 - Dictating the midfield, Xhaka was good. His defensive was superb. The only negative was that he led a few long-range passes astray.
Dani Ceballos - 6 - The Spaniard saw a lot of the ball in the opening 10 minutes of the game. His involvement after was limited.
Emile Smith Rowe - 5 - The current man of the moment struggled in the first half. He didn't see much of the ball at all.
Bukayo Saka - 6 - Trying to make things happen on the right flank, Saka was finding it hard to be creative, Palace were nullifying his threat.
Alexandre Lacazette - 4 - With next to no involvement in the first half, 'Laca' was no threat at all to the Palace defence.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 6 - 'Auba' remained wide left. He stung the Palms of Vicente Guaita with twenty minutes gone but there was no breakthrough.
Nicolas Pepe - 4 - The Ivorian failed to make an impact after coming on with 30 minutes remaining.
Thomas Partey - 6 - Returning from an injury, Partey did his job in midfield and his defensive performance was acceptable.
Eddie Nketiah - 4 - The striker didn’t offer much when he came on.
