Crystal Palace striker Benteke: Arsenal draw frustrating for us

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke admitted frustration after their 2-2 draw at Arsenal.

Benteke says there is 'no excuse' for Arsenal's late equaliser, but promises that Palace will learn from their mistakes after a well-earned draw.

“I think it's another frustrating result for us," he said in his post-match interview. “Obviously we didn't start the way we wanted. Arsenal put us under pressure. They scored quite quickly during the first-half, and then I think in the second-half we were more aggressive – we had a great reaction.

“Then, this kind of game when you are leading, you can't draw. You have to go back home with the three points. I can't just say it's concentration. There's a lot of things going on. There is emotion. We are leading, we are away from home. It's a tough game and we are tired. There is a lot of things going on.

“But I think it's no excuse, because it's not the first time we are dropping points. I think we will learn from our mistakes, but we are learning the hard way."
