Sunderland have broken the heart of Arsenal by scoring a 95th minute equaliser at the Stadium of Light.

Gunners skipper Cesc Fabregas put his side ahead in the 13th minute when he blocked an Anton Ferdinand clearance which sailed over Simon Mignolet’s head but they had to deal with the sending off of Alex Song ten minutes after the break and a missed Tomas Rosicky penalty in the 74th minute and it proved too much as Darren Bent equalised deep in injury time.

The Black Cats striker was on hand to smash home from close range after Gael Clichy failed to clear properly, allowing Sunderland to remain 10th whilst Arsenal stayed in second.
