Reina error saves Gunners

Published Add your comment

Jose Reina's own goal allowed Arsenal to snatch a 1-1 draw from their thrilling Barclays Premier League opener at Liverpool.

The Reds looked to have overcome the sending-off of new signing Joe Cole and seemed set to claim victory with a David Ngog strike early in the second half at Anfield.

But as injury time approached Reina bundled the ball in after Marouane Chamakh had hit the post, and Arsenal also finished a man down after Laurent Koscielny was dismissed.
