Gunners, Reds draw


Arsenal’s title hopes were left hanging by a thread after they conceded a late penalty in an extraordinary finish against Liverpool at the Emirates on Sunday night in a 1-1 draw.

The Gunners thought they had earned a vital win when Robin van Persie slotted in a 98th minute penalty after Jay Spearing brought down Cesc Fabregas.

But just minutes later Emmanuel Eboue fouled Lucas Leiva to allow Dirk Kuyt to grab a Reds equaliser from the spot. The Gunners are now six points behind Manchester United with six games left.

Meanwhile, Stoke booked their FA Cup final debut and a meeting with Manchester City on May 14 after demolishing sorry Bolton 5-0 in the biggest semi-final annihilation in 72 years.
