Top 10 Biggest moments of 2011 - 10 - Newcastle draw 4-4 with Arsenal

23 December 2011 11:22
A win would have moved Arsenal to within just two points off of Manchester United.

Being 4-0 up at half time meant the game was effectively over and Arsenal were very much still in the title race.

Two second half Joey Barton penalties, a goal from Leon Best and a 87th minute screamer from Cheick Tiote made the impossible a reality and Newcastle came out with a point.

Arsenal never recovered from the defeat and their title aspirations disappeared almost as quickly as their 4 goal lead.
