Arsenal have conceded yet another goal at home in the Premier League as Crystal Palace pulled one back to make it 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have been cruising all afternoon, with goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Granit Xhaka putting them 3-0 up without much fuss.

Now, however, Palace have one back after a poorly-defended set piece, and it continues a surprise trend for this Arsenal side in home league games this season.

See below as Opta statistician Orbinho tweets that this means Arsenal have now kept only three clean sheets in their last 19 Premier League home games – quite a difference from their stronger record in away matches…

Arsenal have conceded just nine goals in 14 Premier League away games.

At home this is their 14th game and it's now 17 goals conceded

It’s not clear why this keeps happening to Arsenal, who have generally been so strong this season and are now surely heading for an eight-point lead over Manchester City, who would have a game in hand.

Mikel Arteta surely needs to sort this out as soon as possible if his side are to remain top of the table, as their attack might not be able to keep getting them out of trouble in what could be a close title run-in.
