Arsenal battled back from a goal down to clinch a vital win over Birmingham City at the Emirates. Nikola Zigic put the away side ahead with a well placed header for his first ever Premier League goal but the Gunners levelled from the penalty spot thanks to Samir Nasri.
Good work from Marouane Chamakh helped give Arsenal the lead before Jack Wilshere was then handed a red card for a late foul on Zigic. The win was vital to keep the north London side within reach of all conquering Chelsea.
