Arsenal extended their lead at the Barclays Premier League summit to five points following their 2-0 win but Blackburn made them work hard to defend Philippe Senderos´ opener.

Senderos struck early on at the Emirates Stadium and could added more, only for Brad Friedel to put in a polished performance to keep the visitors in the game.

Mark Hughes´ men threatened at times but Arsenal held on, with Emmanuel Adebayor adding a second in stoppage-time, taking advantage of their title rivals dropping points at the weekend.
