Five-star Arsenal come from behind to thrash Spurs

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

Liverpool won their first trophy in six years after beating Cardiff 3-2 on penalties at Wembley. An enter-taining game ended 2-2 after extra time: Joe Mason put the Welsh side ahead, before Martin Skrtel and Dirk Kuyt replied. Ben Turner then forced spot-kicks. MORE

 

Evergreen Giggs secures United win

Veteran midfielders Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs helped Manchester United win 2-1 at Norwich and close the gap on leaders Manchester City to two points. Scholes opened the scoring before Grant Holt equalised, only for Giggs to win it in added time. MORE

Stoke set pieces defeat Swansea

Headed goals by Matthew Upson and Peter Crouch enabled Stoke to bounce back from their European exit with a 2-0 win over Swansea. Upson scored from a corner while Crouch found the net from a throw-in to help Stoke move above their visitors. MORE

 

Teenaged Hogg is Scotland's hero

Scotland were magnificent in defeat against France at Murrayfield yesterday, with 19-year-old Stuart Hogg becoming their youngest scorer since 1933 and Lee Jones also crossing before France hit back to win 23-17 as the Scots fell to their third loss. MORE

Flower pleased with player growth

England coach Andy Flower has praised his players' resilience as they finish their tour of Pakistan with tonight's T20 match. "It has been a fascinating tour," he said. "It's been good for our growth. It's been nice how we've bounced back in the limited-overs stuff." MORE

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

To a man, the Germany XI that started the Euro '96 semi-final against England have worked in football in their post-playing careers. Yet only Stuart Pearce among England's players is at the peak of the game. MORE
