Reds hold Gunners in late drama

Published Add your comment

Arsenal saw their Barclays Premier League title hopes all but extinguished after Dirk Kuyt secured a point for Liverpool in a 1-1 draw thanks to a last-gasp penalty just moments after Robin van Persie's own spot-kick had looked enough for victory.

The Gunners - now six point points behind leaders Manchester United having played the same games - had plenty of possession and hit the bar in the first half through Laurent Koscielny, but were unable to make their dominance count until deep into stoppage time when Van Persie crashed home a spot-kick.

However, Liverpool - who had earlier seen captain Jamie Carragher carried off with concussion - snatched a point with the final kick of the match after Emmanuel Eboue had pushed Lucas.
