Arsenal 5-3 Middlesbrough
Arsenal equalled Nottingham Forest’s all-time League record sequence of 42 unbeaten matches with a pulsating win.
Thierry Henry gave Arsenal the lead after he lobbed Mark Schwarzer, though Boro contrived an equaliser through Joseph-Desire Job’s venomous drive.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Franck Queudrue strikes then put Boro 3-1 up.
But Dennis Bergkamp’s shot, a Robert Pires tap-in and Reyes’ strike – three goals in 11 minutes – rescued Arsenal, with Henry touching home for a fifth.
