Aaron Ramsey scored in stoppage time to break the resolve of Crystal Palace and give title contenders Arsenal a winning start to their league campaign.

Managerless Palace looked set for a point but had forward Jason Puncheon sent off for a second offence in the 89th minute before Ramsey pounced.

The visitors took a shock first-half lead when Brede Hangeland headed in.

The Gunners equalised just before the break when Laurent Koscielny nodded home from Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick.
