SUNDERLAND, England(AP) Substitute Thierry Henry grabbed an injury-time winner as Arsenal snatched a 2-1 victory at Sunderland on Saturday to move above Chelsea into fourth place in the Premier League on Saturday.

The former France striker volleyed home a cross from Andrei Arshavin in the first minute of stoppage time to complete Arsenal's comeback after James McClean gave Sunderland the lead in the 70th minute.

Aaron Ramsey came off the bench in the 72nd to equalize three minutes later before Henry scored his third goal since joining Arsenal on loan last month.

Arsenal is level on points with Chelsea, which lost 2-0 at Everton on Saturday. Both teams have the same goal difference.
