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.

Meanwhile, Wenger reportedly enquires about Everton left-back Andy

Hinchcliffe.

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.''

1983:

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.
