Substitute Louis Saha grabbed a dramatic late equaliser for Manchester United as the champions held premier league leaders Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at Highbury. Arsenal looked to be cruising to victory after a spectacular 25-metre strike by Thierry Henry in the 50th minute, only for fellow French striker Saha to poach an equaliser with four minutes to go. The draw put a dent in Arsenal's title hopes as a previous nine-point lead over Chelsea, who crushed Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-2 on Saturday, withered to seven points. Arsenal, meet United who are 12 points behind them again next weekend in an FA Cup semi-final, now lead on 74 points, with Chelsea on 67 and United third on 62 with eight games left in the season. Consolation for Arsenal was establishing a record 30-match unbeaten start to a season in the English League.
