Sunderland 1-1 Arsenal

Oct 4, 2008

Cesc Fabregas scored a late header to rescue a disappointing Arsenal after Grant Leadbitter’s stunning drive had appeared to hand Sunderland victory.

Djibril Cisse was twice denied by Manuel Almunia in a low-quality first half that had very few chances.

Robin van Persie’s volley was superbly saved by Craig Gordon before Sunderland went ahead when Leadbitter’s cracking 20-yard shot crashed in off the bar.

But Fabregas nodded in Van Persie’s corner to salvage a point for Arsenal.
