Benayoun Scores Key Goal as Arsenal Win

Israel soccer captain Yossi Benayoun scored a crucial goal to power Arsenal into a third-place finish in the English Premier League and an automatic spot in the all-important Champions League for next season.

The crafty midfielder tapped in the first goal after a blunder by West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Marton Fulop in the fourth minute of Arsenal’s 3-2 victory.

The win meant the Gunners finish the season in third place ahead of bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who also won.

Meanwhile, Manchester City scored two late goals to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2 and pull out a dramatic first-place finish over cross-city giants Manchester United.

United also won, but it was not enough to secure the championship as high-flying City won for the first time in 44 years.
