Arsenal's Oliver Giroud powers home his header to give the Gunners the lead


BBC

Mikel Arteta missed a last-minute penalty as Arsenal had to settle for a draw after a thrilling encounter with Fulham at the Emirates, while Osaze Odemwingie’s West Brom collected all three points off home side, Wigan.

Olivier Giroud's header and Lukas Podolski's close-range strike looked to have put Arsenal in control, reports the BBC.

But Dimitar Berbatov inspired a Fulham reply, heading in before teeing up Alex Kacaniklic to equalise.

Berbatov's spot-kick gave the visitors the lead but Giroud levelled, before Mark Schwarzer saved Arteta's penalty.

And at Wigan, West Brom maintained their excellent start under manager Steve Clarke with a deserved win at Wigan, keeping them fifth in the Premier League.

James Morrison headed the Baggies ahead from Chris Brunt's cross, before Gary Caldwell deflected Billy Jones' effort into his own net.

Wigan reduced the deficit through Arouna Kone's close-range finish.

But the Baggies deserved the points, Ali Al Habsi denying Romelu Lukaku from making it 3-1 with a stunning save.

In other games Everton came from a goal down to beat Sunderland 2-1, Reading played goalless with Norwich, Southhampton played 1-1 with Swansea and Stoke beat QPR 1-0.
