Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Alexander Lacazette curled in a late equalizer in Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday at Emirates Stadium in London.
The goal came in the 82nd minute of the Premier League affair. The Reds and Gunners played an even first half and were scoreless through 60 minutes before James Milner put in the first goal for Liverpool. The midfielder was in the right place at the right time for the goal.
Sadio Mane ripped in a shot from the left flank during the sequence, but the shot was blocked by Bernd Leno. The goalkeeper sprayed the deflection off of an Arsenal defender. The ball rolled right through the middle of the box and onto the right foot of Milner.
The midfielder crushed a shot right into the middle of the net, beating Leno for the game's first score in the 61st minute.
But the Gunners tied it up 20 minutes later. Alex Iwobi dribbled toward the box on that play before sending in a through ball to find Lacazette. The striker tapped the ball in front of Reds keeper Alisson, managing to keep it just out of his reach. He then turned his back to the goal before taking one more touch.
He created just enough space to create a window, before shooting with his right boot and finding the far post netting in the 82nd minute.
