Ramsey emerged as a scoring force in midfield last season, and carried on where he left off with his late intervention. (Louis van Gaal's owns up for Man United's horror start)

The goal came just after Palace had been reduced to 10 men in the 90th minute when Jason Puncheon received a second yellow card.

Puncheon had set up Palace's opener in the 35th, whipping in a corner that Brede Hangeland glanced in with a header.

But Arsenal equalized on the stroke of halftime, also with a defender heading in from a set piece. Laurent Koscielny was unmarked when he met a free kick from offseason recruit Alexis Sanchez.
