pulsating affair meant Arsenal had to come from behind twice to manage a draw against Everton today.

Leon Osman was left free to head in Donovan’s corner and put the visitors ahead after just 11 minutes.

Denilson then equalized with a deflected effort before the break to leave the match in the balance and with less than 10 minutes left, Everton looked poised to secure a stunning victory as Pienaar completed a devastating move to hand his side a 2-1 lead.

Arsenal were out to save their blushes again and subsitute Rosicky did so with another fortuitous effort as his shot was deflected home in injury time to salvalge a point for the Gunners.

That result meant Arsenal remained on the coattails of United and Chelsea. Wenger’s men still have ground to make up but potential champions show character on gritty days likes this.

And a point out of such an icy, feisty contest against the spirited Evertonians is just that.
