Arsenal missed their chance to go top of the Premier League this afternoon drawing 1-1 with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
The Gunners had to rely on a last minute equaliser from Cesc Fabregas after substitute Grant Leadbitter had put the Black Cats ahead with a stunning strike from 25 yards.
While Arsene Wenger’s team produced a breathtaking midweek performance against Porto in the Champions League, they once again struggled to convert their European form into domestic points.
Elsewhere, Manchester United beat a lacklustre Blackburn Rovers side 2-0 at Ewood Park. Wes Brown opened the scoring in the first half before Wayne Rooney made sure of the points after 64 minutes.
