Norwich Hold Arsenal in Thriller
With time running out Van Persie stepped up to the plate once again with a quick fire double in the 72nd and 80th minutes to take his tally in the league this season to 30.
Relentless pressure from Arsenal paid off when Alex Song’s calm ball over the top of the Canaries’ rearguard played in the Dutch striker to gracefully sidefoot home.
Then Van Persie turned the game on its head when a deflected Rosicky pass broke into his path allowing him to slide home for what looked likely to be a winner.
But there was one last dramatic twist to come in the 85th minute as Norwich substitute Steve Morison found himself in space in the Arsenal box to aim a low drive into the far corner.
