Arsenal’s U-21 were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace in the Premier League 2 Monday night reports Prime Business Africa.

The Premier League 2 is where the 20 clubs in the topflight have their U-21sides face off and Monday’s game had Nigerian interests with seven players of Nigerian heritage in action.

Former Arsenal starlet Malcolm Ebiowei scored for the Eagles against Arsenal with a fantastic left footed effort in the 28th minute although he did not celebrate the goal.

Arsenal restored parity from Bandeira, and even saw a shot come off the bar afterwards.

Ebiowei came into the lineup in place of another player of Nigerian descent Victor Akinwale against the Young Gunners as manager Paddy McCarthy made four changes from the side which drew 3-3 against regining Premier League 2 Division 1 champions Manchester City.
