Arsenal survived another bout of jitters this afternoon at Highbury, coming back from 2-1 down at half-time to beat Liverpool 4-2 with a hat-trick
from Thierry Henry.
Thierry Henry's hat-trick put Arsenal seven points clear at top
of the table.
Liverpool threatened to increase Arsenal's misery after the FA Cup and Champions League exits when Sami Hyypia headed them ahead after five
minutes.Henry raced clear to equalise after 31 minutes, but Michael Owen restored Liverpool's lead before half-time.Arsenal scored twice in a minute
early in the second half through Pires and an Henry wonder goal, and the striker completed his treble after 78 minutes.Henry passed a late fitness
test on his back injury as Arsenal attempted to get their season on course after a week of bitter disappointment.It was the result Arsenal needed so
badly, and left Liverpool still fighting a battle for fourth place.
