This week in....2007

Arsenal battle back from a goal down to beat leaders Manchester United 2-1 at Emirates.

Robin van Persie and Thierry Henry turned the game on its head with two late strikes to leave Alex Ferguson fuming.

The United boss took exception to claims Arsene Wenger told his team United would tire in the last 20 minutes.

A bitter Ferguson stormed: "If Arsenal had lost 1-0, as they should have done, what would he have said then? It is petty and absolute nonsense because there is no evidence."

Meanwhile, van Persie was ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken foot. The Dutch striker, who had netted 14 times, was injured scoring the equaliser.
