Arsenal win 2-1

London, Nov. 8 (Reuters): Premier League leaders Arsenal showed typical resilience in beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Highbury on Saturday to preserve their unbeaten record this season and go four points clear at the top.

Freddie Ljungbergís deflected winner in the 78th minute settled a tight derby after Robert Pires had cancelled out Darren Andertonís early strike for Spurs.

But bottom club Leeds Unitedís problems intensified after they crashed 6-1 at Portsmouth. Charlton Athletic went fourth in the table after a 3-1 home victory over Fulham.

Arsenal have 30 points, four more than Chelsea and five more than champions Manchester United, both of whom play on Sunday. Charlton have 21 points.
