Arsenal remains unbeaten with late equalizer at Anfield.

For the uninitiated, Arsenal is one of the top clubs in the Barclay's English Premier League. In short, they're a soccer team (they call it football across the pond). They're also my favorite team, and the big match this weekend was Arsenal against Liverpool. A full match rundown is available here.

The short version... Steven Gerrard blasted home a free kick just outside the box in the 7th minute to put Liverpool up 1-0 early on at home. The Gunners (that's Arsenal) tied it up late in the 80th minute with some immaculate passing and a sweet poke from Cesc Fabregas to get it past Liverpool's keeper Pepe Reina. The game ended in a 1-1 draw, garnering each team a point and keeping Arsenal atop the table in the Premiership.

Huge, huge match next Saturday for Arsenal against Manchester United. This one's at the Emirates, which has proven to be a tough place for any club to come into and play well. But United are at top form with Rooney and Tevez really hitting their stride together, and Cristiano Ronaldo is always a major threat from midfield.
