Arsenal move into second place after a thrilling 3-2 win over runaway leaders Man Utd at Highbury. Nicolas Anelka scored his first goal in
English football before Patrick Vieira made it 2-0. Teddy Sheringham
scored twice to level matters before a late David Platt header gave
the points to Arsenal. 'I think we had many supporters in the country
today, including other managers,' said Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal are held to a goalless draw by Liverpool in a Littlewoods Cup
third round replay at Highbury. The attendance of more than 54,000 -
with at least 6,000 locked out - is the last ever 50,000 plus crowd at
Highbury. Arsenal manager George Graham is impressed by Liverpool's
rearguard action: "They have gained experience in Europe over two
decades. They know how to defend and how to hit on the break.''
Tony Adams, 17, make his Arsenal first-team bow in a 2-1 home defeat to Sunderland - it was a nightmare start for the Romford-botn defender as he lost possession after just three minutes to hand Colin West the chance to give the Mackems a lead they never relinquished.
