Arsenal earned their first points of the 2015/16 campaign through a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace.

The Gunners began their trip to Selhurst Park on the front foot but they were sparring their opponents on the score sheet until Giroud found the net with an acrobatic effort.

With the Arsenal defense still finding it feet so far this term, another avoidable goal went in as Ward drilled home a low shot to equalize.

Wickham then struck the post for Palace after break but a header from Sanchez forced a deflected own-goal from Delaney as the visitors regained the lead.
