West Ham United 2 Arsenal 2

Glenn Roeder's Hammers threw away the chance to send Premiership Champions Arsenal spinning to their first league defeat since December 2001 after surrendering a two goal lead at the Boleyn this afternoon.

Strikes from Joe Cole and Freddie Kanoute had put the Hammers two goals to the good in an exhilarating London derby, before Thierry Henry smashed a belter beyond David James to reduce the deficit to one.

Freddie Kanoute then spurned a golden opportunity to seal the victory when he missed a penalty - a mistake which cost the home side dear when Sylvian Wiltord snatched a point for the visitors with just two minutes remaining on the clock.

As it was Arsenal failed to win their first Premiership outing since February - thereby missing the chance to extend their winning run to a record 15 consecutive games - but Roeder's men will be bitterly disappointed at throwing away two points in a game they seemed destined to win.
