Arsenal wastes 2-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Fulham

  •  

LONDON (AP) -Arsenal wasted a two-goal lead for the second time this week, with a 3-3 draw against Fulham prolonging the team's worst Premier League start under Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners appeared to be cruising when Olivier Giroud headed them in front and Lukas Podolski fired in another in the 23rd minute.

But just like in Tuesday's 2-2 draw at Schalke in the Champions League, Arsenal's advantage evaporated. In the space of 11 minutes, both Dimitar Berbatov and Alex Kacaniklic were left to score with free headers for Fulham.

Arsenal's troubles deepened in the second half when Dimitar Berbatov put Fulham ahead from the penalty spot.

Giroud equalized for Arsenal with his second headed goal and the hosts could have won the match in stoppage time but Mikel Arteta's penalty was saved.
