LONDON (AP) — Arsenal's 11-game winning run in all competitions ended with a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday.

Luka Milivojevic converted a penalty — his second of the afternoon — in the 83rd minute to earn Palace a point at Selhurst Park as Arsenal failed to win a game for the first time since mid-August.

Granit Xhaka, with a thunderous free kick, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in a five-minute span to put Arsenal ahead by the 56th after Milivojevic's first penalty gave Palace the lead in first-half stoppage time.

After opening the season with losses to Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal embarked on a two-month winning streak across three competitions — the league, the Europa League and the English League Cup — as the methods of newly hired manager Unai Emery started to take hold.

Fourth-place Arsenal will drop out of the Champions League qualification positions if Tottenham beats Manchester City on Monday.

Aubameyang's strike — a close-range finish at the far post — means the Gabon international scored with each of his last six shots on target in the Premier League. He grabbed braces off the bench in his previous two games.

The goal, which made it 2-1, was contentious because strike partner Alexandre Lacazette flicked the ball on from a corner using his outstretched hand.
