Jeffrey Monakana's second-half penalty grabbed a draw for Arsenal Under-18s at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Vences Bola had given the home side a 2-1 lead when his brace replied to Serge Gnabry's 16th-minute opener.

But Monakana's 76th-minute spot-kick earned Steve Bould's young Gunners a point to keep their hopes of a Premier Academy League title on track.

The Under-18s welcome Fulham to London Colney on Saturday, October 1.
