Arsenal Keeps League Lead with a Tie with Aston Villa

A late goal by Nicklas Bendtner salvaged Arsenal from losing their place at the top of the Premier League after an own goal by Philippe Senderos.

Gabriel Agbonlahor of Aston Villa drove a low cross in the 27th minute but was sent into Arsenal's goal by the unfortunate Senderos.

Aston Villa almost added a second goal when Shaun Maloney drove in a fierce shot but Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia was able to turn the shot onto the post.

As a struggling Arsenal seemed destined for a defeat, substitute Bendtner sent in a goal to tie the match in the last 10 seconds.

Videos of the goals of the match are available for viewing below.
