Fabregas denies Black Cats

Published Add your comment

Cesc Fabregas denied Sunderland a famous victory over Arsenal with an injury-time header to secure a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light.

The Gunners looked to be heading for their first back-to-back defeats in the Barclays Premier League for 18 months when substitute Grant Leadbitter struck with only four minutes remaining.

But Fabregas rescued his side with a header in the third minute of injury time to prevent Roy Keane collecting a first win as a manager over one of the 'big four'.
