London:

Arsenal stayed on top of the Premier League with a 3-0 victory at Charlton even though Leeds had scored a long overdue victory over Manchester United. French stars Thierry Henry and Sylvain Wiltord hit the target and Brazilian midfielder Edu added a third as the Gunners set a league record of scoring in 45 games in a row with 22 games unbeaten on the road and 27 in all. "It shows that the quality and the consistency is there," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. "They have a very strong attitude to offensive and positive football and, of course, I am very pleased with that. Wenger kept Patrick Vieira on the field for the full 90 minutes despite the French international's plea to be rested because he felt tired having played every game so far. In a game that kicked off three hours earlier for the benefit of live TV, Harry Kewell headed Leeds United to its first victory over Manchester United for five seasons in a 1-0 victory that temporarily sent Terry Venables' team to the top of the Premier League. Emile Heskey scored a last minute winner as Liverpool won 3-2 at Bolton after Czech striker Milan Baros - starting for the rested Michael Owen, had netted twice on his Premier League debut.(AP)
