Arsenal was so far down to Reading in their League Cup match -- 4-0 to be exact -- that many Gunner fans headed to the exits at Reading early and they missed the game's remarkable finish. Arsenal pulled even 4-4 in the sixth minute of stoppage time and won 7-5 in overtime.

"We had a big party in the second half," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger before remarking that the final score was more familiar in tennis, joking "so that's the first set to us."

Wenger said Arsenal got back in the game in the second half with what he called "a decent performance" before admitting that the comeback "may be" one of his greatest victories at Arsenal.

He praised the Arsenal fans that did stay at the Madejski Stadium.

"I felt sorry for our fans and I would like to give them credit tonight," he said. "A big part of them stayed behind and I am happy that we paid them back." And for those who left? "I give them less credit," he replied.
