Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rescues a draw for Arsene Wenger’s side with late equaliser in pre-season opener. Chuba Akpom fired straight at the goalkeeper before Abdellah Zoubir blazed over for the home side in Lens. Lens scored on 38 minutes, with Calum Chambers’ loose pass intercepted before being squared to Mathias Autret. Arsenal had a goal ruled out in the 69th minute when Theo Walcott was flagged for offside after a dinked finish. Joel Campbell, on as a half-time substitute, went close for the Gunners with a curling effort at Nicolas Douchez. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, assisted by Serge Gnabry, grabbed the equaliser with a smart finish in the 81st minute.
