Arsenal Clinches a triller with the help of Van Persie

Van Persie scored twice against Sunderland to win a thrilling a match which could have gone any way. Arsenal Scored twice in the opening 20 minutes. Diaby's goal was disallowed due to a foul on Fabregas which resulted in the free kick. van perise took the free kick and scored a scorcher with his left foot as every one stood and watched the ball into the net.

Few minutes later Senderos scored the second of the match. The last time he scored a gaol was in Jan, 2006. Arsenal was in full control and dominated the first 20 minutes. Diaby's goal was again disallowed by the linesmen this time. He was never near off side when he scored the goal.

Then Roy keane's men took full control of the game. Sunderland scored in the first half. Then second half completely belonged to Sunderland and their excellent attacking prooved too much for Arsenal's defence. Sunderland leveled the score in the 55th minute.

Then it was high class drama untill Van Persie scored again from an excellent assist from Walcott. It was an excellent effort from Van Persie who netted is second goal of the match. Few minutes later he was substituted by Gilberto who was celebrating his 31st birthday.

Referee's poor form continued this season when the referee sent off Paul Mcshane for a mistimed tackle. Still it was an excellent effort from Sunderland the credit should be given to them who came back from 2-0 deficit against the League leaders.

Ross Wallace and Jones scored for Sunderland but that was not enough to stop the League Leaders.
