After an engrossing battle, this was probably the nail in the coffin. Arshavin crashing his shot through after racing across the field in tandem with Walcott who passed him the ball. 90th minute.
But it was not to be as Benayoun pounces on a loose ball with the Gunners making a hash of marking their players. The match ended in a 4-4 draw with both teams spanking each others defenses and leaving Rafa with a huge question mark.
