Arsenal snatch late draw at Liverpool

Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina gifted Arsenal a late draw at Anfield on Sunday after French striker David Ngog gave the Reds an early lead in a thrilling encounter that saw both teams finish the game with 10 men.

REUTERS - Arsenal equalised in the last minute of normal time to force a 1-1 draw at Liverpool as both teams finished with 10 men in their opening Premier League match of the season on Sunday.

Liverpool went ahead just after halftime when Javier Mascherano played in David Ngog and the French striker lashed the ball past goalkeeper Manuel Almunia on his near post.

Arsenal equalised when Marouane Chamakh headed against the post and Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina spilled the rebound into the net for an own goal.

A minute before halftime, Liverpool were reduced to 10 men when England midfielder Joe Cole, making his Premier League debut for his new side, was sent off for a clumsy challenge on Arsenal's debutant defender Laurent Koscielny.

Koscielny was sent off seconds from the end of stoppage time for a second yellow card following a handball.
