Fabregas rescues late point for Gunners

Arsenal have today escaped back-to-back Premier League defeats by earning a late point away at Sunderland. Arsene Wenger's men were lucky to leave the Stadium of Light with a point this afternoon, scoring deep into injury time.

In truth, neither side really deserved all three points and a draw was probably fair result, however Roy Keane may feel a little unlucky his side didn't hang on to win the game. Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie may of put the visitors ahead with fifteen minutes to go. His close-range shot was well saved by the Black Cats keeper Craig Gordon.

But it was the hosts who took a dramatic lead with only minutes left on the clock. Substitute Grant Leadbitter firing home a peach from all of 25-yards to send the home crowd crazy. You may of forgiven Sunderland boss Keane for thinking his side had done enough to claim all three points, however Cesc Fabregas headed home a Van Persie corner with only seconds remaining.

Despite the late goal, this is still a poor result for Arsenal. Following the result at home to Hull City last weekend it was vital they got back to winning ways today. Credit to Sunderland, they restricted the Gunners to long-range efforts and were unlucky in the end not to come away with all three points.
