Arsenal player ratings vs Luton Town: David Raya is a very lucky man! Declan Rice comes to hapless goalkeeper's rescue with last-gasp winner after two heinous errors

Declan Rice scored a dramatic 97th-minute winner to spare David Raya's blushes and send Arsenal five points clear at the top of the Premier League following a thrilling 4-3 win at Luton on Tuesday night.

Two awful second-half errors from Raya looked to have seen his side drop two crucial points in the title race at Kenilworth Road, only for Rice to pop up deep into stoppage time to plant a header past Thomas Kaminski and spark wild celebrations in the away end.

It was an incredible end to a crazy game which swung back and forth all evening. Gabriel Martinelli had given Arsenal the lead, but Gabriel Osho levelled soon after with a free header from a corner, only for Gabriel Jesus to make it 2-1 seconds before the break.

At that point the Gunners appeared well placed to go on and secure a comfortable win, but Raya flapped at a corner early in the second half to allow Elijah Adebayo to equalise before letting a Ross Barkley shot squirm under his body soon after.

It was another awful moment for the Arsenal keeper, one that will see Mikel Arteta come in for even more questions about his decision to replace Aaron Ramsdale with the on-loan Brentford stopper.

But Havertz levelled soon after before Rice sealed all three points with seconds remaining to secure a remarkable victory.
