Fright at the museum

Arsenal 2-1 Manchester United

It was doubles all round as the Emirates finally came alive with Arsenal scoring twice in the last ten minutes to win their 200th meeting against Man Utd and do the double over the league leaders.

Robin van Persie and who else but Thierry Henry - with 93.5 minutes on the clock - took advantage of some shoddy United defending to cancel out Wayne Rooney's earlier headed goal and win a thrilling game in N5.

Here are the goals from today's match:

The victory took the Gunners to within six points of second place Chelsea, who crashed to a 2-0 defeat at Anfield, undone by a sound finish from Dirk Kuyt (below left) and a stunning strike by Jermaine Pennant (below right):


Liverpool are now a mere five points adrift of Chelsea, blowing the race for runner-up wide open; United, meanwhile, remain odds-on for the title in spite of their defeat - six points clear of the Blues and with a vastly superior goal difference.
