Henry scores late winner for Arsenal
LONDON -- Thierry Henry scored during injury time Sunday to give Arsenal a 2-1 comeback win over Manchester United in the Premier League.
Henry took a cross from defender Emmanuel Eboue and headed the ball past diving goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar in the third minute of injury time.
Robin van Persie had tied the score in the 83rd for Arsenal, keeping United from opening a nine-point lead over two-time defending champion Chelsea. Van Persie received a pass from Henry at the far post before shooting the ball into the top of the net past Van der Sar.
"You cannot expect anything better -- to play against Man United and be 1-0 down and come back like that right at the end and win the game," Henry said.
Wayne Rooney gave United the lead in the 53rd minute when he met a cross from Patrice Evra at the far post after it had been sent on by Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue.

In first-half injury time, Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann tipped Rooney's volley from 25 yards off the crossbar and out of play. In the ensuing scramble off the corner kick, Lehmann dived to his left to keep Henrik Larsson's header from slipping into the bottom right of the goal.
