Arsenal turned round a two-goal deficit to thrash Tottenham 5-2 at the Emirates and move to within seven points of their neighbours. Louis Saha and Emmanuel Adebayor put Harry Redknapp's side 2-0 ahead within 35 minutes, before five goals inside half an hour either side of the interval turned the match on its head. Bacary Sagna and Robin van Persie levelled the score by the break, before Tomas Rosicky and Theo Walcott, with two, completed the turnaround. MORE

 

Reds deny brave Cardiff in shoot-out

Warrington surge clear to move top

A late surge helped Warrington overcome Hull KR 42-10 to move top of the Super League. Chris Riley, Ben Westwood and Ryan Atkins all went over twice for Tony Smith's unbeaten side, who were pulled back to 18-10 just after the break. MORE

Opinion: Sam Wallace
