Watch highlights as Olivier Girouds late equaliser snatched a point for Arsenal in their 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday. Xavier Williams Jersey . Arsene Wenger has had little to cheer against Jose Mourinho in the Premier League but his decision to throw on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Giroud late on proved inspired as they combined for the leveller after Juan Matas opener.The late salvo stretched Arsenals unbeaten run in all competitions to 17 games, although Wenger has still yet to beat Mourinho in the league in 12 meetings and Girouds goal was his sides only shot on target. After the match, United boss Mourinho described his side as the unluckiest in the Premier League.I am really happy with the team, but at the moment I consider us the unluckiest team in the Premier League because it is the reality, Mourinho told Sky Sports. Jose Mourinho felt his side were unlucky to concede late on against Arsenal If you analyse the last three matches. Against Stoke we have to win 5-0 or 6-0 and we draw. Against Burnley we have to win 5-0 or 6-0 and we draw and today we have to win 2-0 or 3-0 and we draw.We are the unluckiest team but the team is playing well, the players are working really well.Hit play on the video at the top of the page to watch highlights Also See: Giroud salvages point Jose: Utd are unluckiest team Wenger hails mental toughness Man Utd 1-1 Arsenal recap Bashaud Breeland Jersey . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. Kyler Fackrell Jersey . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. It might come as news to the NBC Sports Network studio crew that spent part of Wednesday nights post-game show panning Pekka Rinnes effort this season, but the Nashville Predators goalie isnt the reason theyre off to a 4-5-3 start.Rinnes save percentage of .922 is 15th in the league, which isnt exactly Carey Price territory but sure beats February of last season, when he was 37th among 43 qualified goalies in save percentage. Whats more, Rinne was in vintage form Tuesday night, kicking out 33 shots in a 3-1 win over Ottawa.That included one of the seasons best saves anywhere, his stop on Bobby Ryans wrister six minutes into the game that appeared headed for the nets open half until Rinne kicked it out with his left pad.Between he and Carey, theyve got to be among the best goaltenders in the league, said defenseman P.K. Subban, Prices teammate in Montreal until an offseason trade landed him in Nashville. When hes on, hes on, and hes been on all season.The Predators will ask Rinne to be on again Thursday night when they host the St. Louis Blues in game three of a four-game homestand. Its the first meeting between the Central Division rivals, who are both in chase mode behind the Chicago Blackhawks.St. Louis is at a scheduling disadvantage in this one, as it played Wednesday night and fell 2-1 in overtime to Chicago in a game that reeked of a playoff classic instead of an early November contest. The Blues (7-4-3) scored with 2:11 left in regulation to force the extra period, but were denied the extra point 225 seconds into overtime on Artemi Panarins wrister as a power play ended. Charvarius Ward Jersey. An inability to score has hampered St. Louis in its last eight games. Its 3-4-1 in that span, a record which one might consider flattering since its tallied just 13 times.Weve got to find ways to score, defenseman Alex Pietrangelo said. If we can keep getting to the net and causing more traffic, were going to score more goals.Pietrangelo took advantage of bodies in front of Chicago goalie Corey Crawford on the tying goal, as Jori Lehtera screened Crawford well enough for him to not get a bead on the shot. It caromed off Crawford and trickled into the net.Otherwise, it was another night of flail to no avail for the Blues. Vladimir Tarasenko epitomized that, as he failed to elevate the puck on a Grade A chance near the end of a third-period power play and was robbed of a game-tying marker.As for Nashville, its also having trouble scoring goals, as it only has 31 in 12 games. But it did pot three Tuesday night against Ottawas Craig Anderson, beating him with its first two shots of the second period.We had a lot of chances, defenseman Roman Josi said. We played a really good game for three periods and got rewarded.The Predators could see a familiar face in the other net. Former backup Carter Hutton might get the start in this one for St. Louis, as Jake Allen saved 28 shots in the loss to Chicago. ' ' '
