Arsenal 1-1 Aston Villa Highlights
A late Nicklas Bendtner goal rescued Arsenal after a Philippe Senderos own goal had seemed set to cost them their place at the top of the Premier League.
Gabriel Agbonlahor’s driven, low cross was turned into his own net by the unfortunate Senderos on 27 minutes. Villa almost added a second but Manuel Almunia did superbly to turn Shaun Maloney’s fierce shot onto the post. As a below-par Arsenal looked destined for defeat, substitute Bendtner poked in an equaliser in the last 10 seconds. Arsenal started the match looking determined to shake off the after-effects of last weekend’s nightmarish experience at Birmingham, the scene of two points dropped as well as Eduardo da Silva’s horrific leg break. And Theo Walcott – up front in place of Eduardo – brought a fine save out of Carson after an exquisite turn and shot.
