Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno made two consecutive saves to stop Jota and Marko Grujic and the visitors responded with a chance of their own as Rob Holding's header was punched away by Adrian in the 70th minute.The Gunners also appealed for a penalty in stoppage time when James Milner fell and handled the ball.
