Arsenal beat Liverpool, return to third in premier league

7:47 am on 14 December 2009

Arsenal have returned to third place in the English Premier football league and dented Liverpool's already fading hopes of a top-four finish by coming from behind to win 2-1 at Anfield.

The Gunners are now three points behind the champions Manchester United and six adrift of leaders Chelsea, but with a game in hand over the top two.

Aston Villa are fourth after their 1-nil upset over Manchester United yesterday.
