Robin van Persie killed off a Blackpool fightback as Arsenal kept their slender Barclays Premier League title hopes alive with a 3-1 win at Blackpool.

Abou Diaby and Emmanuel Eboue put Arsenal into a commanding position at Bloomfield Road but Gary Taylor-Fletcher replied as relegation-threatened Blackpool played for their top-flight lives.

Taylor-Fletcher felt he was denied a penalty but Van Persie made victory safe for Arsenal after 76 minutes.
