Updated: 2005-12-27 09:25


Jose Antonio Reyes scored just before the hour to end the drought with his second league goal of the season, a shot inside the near post after goalkeeper Thomas Myhre had parried Thierry Henry's effort from the right.

"The team was a bit nervy because we have lost a few games recently... When we scored it was a relief and we are not used to this but this victory can give us a new start," manager Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal website.

Charlton were down to 10 men for the last 18 minutes after midfielder Danny Murphy was sent off for dissent.

Spurs beat 10-man Birmingham City with a Robbie Keane penalty and Jermain Defoe's injury-time strike. City's Muzzy Izzet was sent off just past the hour for a second bookable offence.

Aston Villa beat Everton 4-0 at home with two strikes from Czech Milan Baros, who admitted to handball in the build-up to the opening goal of the match.

Striker Shefki Kuqi scored both for Blackburn Rovers in their 2-0 win at Middlesbrough and Jason Roberts also hit two in the thriller at Wigan Athletic which the home side edged 4-3 against Manchester City after leading 4-1.

Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp remained unbeaten in two home matches since his return to the club after a 1-1 draw with West Ham United, while Sunderland picked up only their sixth point in 18 matches and first in 10 against fifth-placed Bolton.
