Gunner news: Arsenal 1-1 Wolves

Steven Fletcher strike cancels out early Gervinho opener as 10-man visitors earn their point

Gunners frustrated as Hennessey produces a fine performance to nullify the hosts' attack after a header from Fletcher restored parity following Gervinho's opener

EPL,Robin Van Persie,Arsenal v Wolverhampton Wanderers

A goal from Gervinho gave the hosts the perfect start after 10 minutes, but the Gunners were pegged back by a Steven Fletcher header in the first half, and some fine saves from Wayne Hennessey throughout the game helped earn the Midland side a point, even after Nenad Milijas' sending off in the second half.

For the hosts, Johan Djourou was back in the team after a short spell on the sidelines following an injury picked up against Manchester City, while Theo Walcott was absent through illness.

Tomas Rosicky filled in for the pacy winger, and Aaron Ramsey was dropped to the bench in favour of Yossi Benayoun.

And it was the Israeli who played a pivotal role for the home team, sending Gervinho through on goal in the opening 10 minutes. The Ivorian then rounded Hennessey before coolly dispatching the ball into the bottom corner.

Robin van Persie almost extended his account for the season, but slipped as he pulled the trigger with his right foot, and dragged his shot wide after being put through by Gervinho.

The Dutchman was later denied by a good block from Roger Johnson, and then a fine stop by Hennessey as he dived low to his right to turn the ball around the post.

Arsenal seemed very comfortable in possession, but Wolves earned themselves a way back into the match with a little over five minutes to half time.

A corner was whipped in by Nenad Milijas, but only partially cleared by the Arsenal defence. Stephen Hunt juggled the ball past Rosicky on the edge of the area, but his volleyed shot was deflected by Vermaelen into the path of Steven Fletcher.

His header across the face of goal just evaded Wojciech Szczesny and crept into the Arsenal goal for a shock equaliser.

The first half played out without any more events, but the second half began with a blow for Wolves as Zubar was forced off through injury.

Arsenal were dominant in possession as they went in search of a second goal, and had claims for a penalty turned down as Laurent Koscielny's cross struck Christophe Berra on the arm.

The hosts created more and more chances as the game progressed towards the final moments, with Van Persie forcing a good save from Hennessey with a free-kick before Mertesacker's header was brilliantly stopped by the Welshman.

The game threatened to turn nasty as Alex Song was put into the book for kicking Fletcher before catching Hunt high on the shin, and Thomas Vermaelen tangled with Roger Johnson. Arsene Wenger then withdrew Song for Aaron Ramsey with time running out.

Minutes later, referee Stuart Attwell produced a red card for Milijas. The midfielder lost control of the ball and slid in one-footed with his leg on the floor, connecting with the ball and Mikel Arteta.

Arshavin almost found the top corner with a toe-poked effort with 10 minutes to go, but saw his effort slide just past the post.

Hennessey proved to be a fine last line of defence as he blocked everything coming his way, including a good chance from Vermaelen as time ticked away, and earned the draw for his team.

Gunner news: Aston Villa 1-2 Arsenal

Substitute Yossi Benayoun heads dramatic late winner to earn priceless victory over 10-man hosts

Gunners get back on track following weekend loss against Manchester City thanks to Israeli's late header, Albrighton's Villa goal was Premier League's 20,000th strike

EPL - Aston Villa v Arsenal, Robin Van Persie

Arsenal beat Aston Villa 2-1 at Villa Park thanks to a Robin van Persie penalty in the first half and a late header from Yossi Benayoun.

Marc Albrighton found the back of the net for Villa, scoring the Premier League's 20,000th goal in the process.

The Gunners took the lead through Van Persie’s spot kick after Ciaran Clark tugged back Theo Walcott in the area.

Villa equalised early in the second half through Albrighton before Benayoun's late winner.

Alex McLeish once again decided to leave Darren Bent out of the Villa starting line-up, further feeding rumours of a bust-up between the two.

Arsenal brought Emmanuel Frimpong into midfield in place of the suspended Alex Song and Francis Coquelin started at right-back as Arsene Wenger’s full-back shortage continues.

The home side started the game brightly and nearly opened the scoring within five minutes, with Agbonlahor’s bullet header forcing a magnificent reaction save out of Szczesny.

The Polish keeper was once again worked by Agbonlahor, getting to the England striker’s cross with Stephen Ireland lurking dangerously.

Arsenal had endured a tough start but were given the perfect chance to take the lead after 15 minutes, as Walcott turned brilliantly in the box but was tugged back by Clark, despite the England winger trying to stay on his feet and referee Jon Moss pointed to the spot.

Van Persie stepped up to lash the ball high into the net, equalling Thierry Henry’s record for 34 Premier League goals scored in a calendar year.

The Dutchman nearly provided an instant second as he played Walcott through who could only hit Guzan with an attempted chip as the American came rushing off his line.

Big Ben strikes | Benayoun grabbed a late winner to secure all three points

Villa were looking to work their way back into the game, Petrov forcing Szczesny to save a 30-yard effort and Albrighton’s cross worrying the Arsenal backline with Ireland again close.

The Gunners’ slick passing was dangerous on the break though and good work from Van Persie sent Ramsey bursting through midfield but the Welshman rushed his shot from the edge of the area with Walcott well placed in the right channel.

With half-time looming, N’Zogbia set off on a run, beating Coquelin before being tripped by Mertesacker who was booked.

Before the free-kick was taken Ireland was brought off in place of Barry Bannan due to a calf injury, and the young Scotsman took the set-piece and was a whisker away from netting with his first-touch, just sending the ball over the bar.

Villa went in behind at the break but had perhaps had the best of the first-half play.

The second half started in a similar vein with Villa looking to dominate Arsenal’s patchy defence and the Gunners looking to Walcott and Gervinho’s pace on the counter.

And the Villans pressure finally told after 10 second half minutes, Guzan’s long ball could only find Vermaelen but his header to Mertesacker was short and Albrighton stole in, rounding the German and slotting past Szczesny at the Holte End to score a landmark goal.

The Gunners almost re-took the lead immediately, van Persie’s corner falling to Mertesacker who hit a half-volley which was clawed away by Guzan.

The game had opened up but a lack of cutting edge at both ends was costing both sides dearly, Arsenal sent Tomas Rosicky on in place of Frimpong in an attempt to wrestle the initiative back.

Van Persie was looking the Gunners' most likely source of a goal when on the ball and he set off on a twisting run towards the box going past Dunne before falling under Stephen Warnock's challenge in the box.

The referee decided that Van Persie was already on his way to ground when contact was made however, and the Arsenal captain was booked for simulation.

As the game entered the final 10 minutes, both sides looked to push on for a potential winner, Arsenal bringing on Yossi Benayoun and Andrey Arshavin for Gervinho and Ramsey and the russian went close with a deflected effort which left Guzan stranded.

And the Gunners took the lead from the resulting corner, with Wenger's other sub, Benayoun nodding home in the six-yard box to score his first Arsenal goal.

Villa brought young striker Nathan Delfouneso on for Marc Albrighton as they searched for a second equaliser but they were unable to find a goal and things got worse for Villa as Alan Hutton picked up two late yellow cards and will now be suspended for their boxing day trip to Stoke City.
