THE ARSENAL players may still be reeling from the events of last Saturday when Arsene Wenger's amazing act of sportsmanship helped to at least partially redeem football's often- tattered image. But they must put all that behind them as they focus on tonight's match, Manchester United vs Arsenal (7pm Sky Sports 1). A victory for the visitors, for whom Petit and Bergkamp are suspended, against the Premiership leaders could throw the title race wide open again. However, Arsenal's renowned defence will have to be at its best to hold the in-form United strikers.

Biography (9pm History Channel) recounts the life of Rasputin (right), the Siberian Eastern Orthodox mystic, who advised Tsarina Alexandra. He was reported to have got up to such misdeeds that a group of nobles bumped him off.
