Manchester United lost a chance to add distance between itself and defending champion Chelsea's when it fell to Arsenal, 2-1, after conceding two goals in the last seven minutes. The loss came a day after Chelsea lost to Liverpool, 2-0. United, looking for its first league title since 2003, has 57 points, six more than Chelsea, champion for the last two seasons. Liverpool has 46, and Arsenal is fourth with 45.

Dutchman Robin van Persie came off the bench to score an 83rd-minute equalizer, and Thierry Henry headed a fine stoppage-time winner. The victory, the second of the season for Arsenal over United, was marred by Van Persie's broken bone in his foot suffered celebrating his goal, according to Manager Arsene Wenger. England striker Wayne Rooney headed United into a lead that could potentially have decided the title race.

ITALY. Inter Milan moved 11 points clear at the top of Serie A after beating Fiorentina, 3-1, at the San Siro on Sunday thanks to goals from Dejan Stankovic, Adriano and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Second-place Roma had to settle for a 1-1 tie with at Livorno in a game that saw Roma captain Francesco Totti sent off.

SPAIN. Barcelona, Sevilla and Real Madrid find themselves in a three-way tie for first place in Liga. Barcelona, the defending champion, reclaimed the leadership on goal difference on Sunday after a 3-0 win over last-place Gimnastic Tarragona on goals by Javier Saviola, Ludovic Giuly and Andres Iniesta. Real Madrid joined Sevilla and Barca at the top after a superbly struck free kick from Jose Antonio Reyes allowed the Merengues to win 1-0 at Real Mallorca despite playing poorly. David Beckham remained in Real coach Fabio Capello's doghouse and didn't play. Sevilla tied Villarreal, 0-0, on Saturday. Barcelona has a game in hand on Real Madrid and Sevilla.
