Last-chance saloon

Harry Redknapp admitted he hoped for 'one more chance' when we made it 4-3 with time running out at Arsenal - his prayers were answered as Aaron Lennon slotted the equaliser deep into injury time.

A game that had everything looked to be out of our reach when Robin Van Persie slammed home Arsenal's fourth goal for a 4-2 lead with just over 20 minutes left.

However, with 88 minutes on the clock, Gael Clichy slipped on half-way, Jermaine Jenas picked up the loose ball and drove forward before curling a cracker from the edge of the box for 4-3.

It wasn't over though. Three minutes and 15 seconds into four minutes of added time, Tom Huddlestone headed forward, Luka Modric swivelled to hit a volley that cannoned off the post and Aaron Lennon was there to slot home the equaliser.

"Time was running out and it looked all over at 4-2 down," reflected Harry at the Emirates.

"Once it went to 4-3 we had nothing to lose. We went for it. We stuck Jonathan Woodgate up front and knew that either they would score again or, hopefully, we would get one more chance.

"We got that chance and took it.

"It's a fantastic result, a great point for us. You would always take a point at Arsenal anyway but the lads showed a real never-say-die attitude.

"To score four goals away from home shows what quality we have as well. It was an amazing game to be involved in."
