Arsenal, Spurs produce late comebacks

first_imgLONDON (AP):The English Premier League’s north London rivals left it late to snatch points yesterday, with Tottenham outdoing Arsenal with their comeback.Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud scored only his third Premier League goal of the season to retrieve a 1-1 draw at Manchester United.Tottenham forward Harry Kane, who missed almost two months through injury across September and October, scored twice in the closing minutes against West Ham to recover a 3-2 victory and end his team’s seven-match winless run.Liverpool remained on top despite being held by Southampton to 0-0, but Manchester City are only behind on goal difference after winning at Crystal Palace 2-1.Chelsea, who play Middlesbrough today and Arsenal are two points behind the front-runners, while Tottenham are a further point back in fifth.MAN UNITED 1 ARSENAL 1Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s winless run in competitive meetings with rival coach JosÈ Mourinho extended to 14 matches, but the Frenchman will probably not be too concerned with that after seeing his side escape with a point.Giroud scored an 89th-minute equaliser in a disappointing meeting between two English heavyweights. In a rare attack by the visitors, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reached the byline and crossed for his fellow substitute to head home at the far post with Arsenal’s first effort on target all match.Juan Mata’s 68th-minute goal put United ahead, the playmaker meeting a right-wing cut-back by Ander Herrera with a low, first-time shot into the corner.TOTTENHAM 3 WEST HAM 2Tottenham remain the only unbeaten team in all four leagues in England thanks to Kane’s late scoring exploits.Kane, the league’s top scorer last season, netted in the 89th minute and again in the first minute of stoppage time from the penalty spot as West Ham unravelled at White Hart Lane. There was still time for Winston Reid to be sent off after collecting his second yellow card for pushing Kane in the final seconds.Michail Antonio put West Ham ahead with a 24th-minute goal that was cancelled out six minutes after halftime by Harry Winks on his first Premier League start. West Ham went back in front thanks to Manuel Lanzini’s penalty after Reid was fouled by Vincent Janssen.CRYSTAL PALACE 1 MAN CITY 2Yaya Toure made an immediate impact on his return from his Manchester City exile.The Ivorian midfielder was a surprise inclusion in Pep Guardiola’s starting XI, making his first league appearance of the season, and justified his selection by scoring goals in the 39th and 83rd minutes to bring City level on points with first-place Liverpool.Substitute Connor Wickham’s 66th-minute goal briefly made it 1-1, but Palace slumped to a fifth successive defeat.Other results: Watford 2 Leicester 1; Everton 1 Swansea 1; Stoke 0 Bournemouth 1.last_img read more
