Bolton 2-3 Arsenal Highlights
Arsenal hung on in the title race by coming from 2-0 down to beat Bolton despite Abou Diaby’s sending off.
Matthew Taylor headed Bolton in front from a cross by Gretar Steinsson, who was later clattered by Diaby and the referee produced a straight red. Taylor’s deflected drive doubled the lead before William Gallas volleyed home to cut the deficit. Robin Van Persie made it 2-2 with a penalty and Arsenal won it when Jlloyd Samuel put through his own net late on. It was a remarkable turnaround, as for large spells Arsenal failed to cope with the driving rain, slippery pitch and Bolton’s greater desire.
