Wenger -- I'm committed to Arsenal cause

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reiterated his commitment to the club after Robin van Persie's brace helped the Gunners to a 2-1 at Norwich, which is their fifth straight league win.

Reports in France suggested Wenger would review his position at the end of the campaign, but he said: "I am committed to the club and will respect my contract to the end, unless I feel I am not good enough.

"That has always been the case."

Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson required stitches in a head wound following his late heroics in earning a last-gasp penalty from which Rovers secured a 3-3 draw at Wigan.

Ayegbeni Yakubu equalised from the spot eight minutes into stoppage time after David Jones' high kick caught Robinson -- up for a late corner -- in the face.

"We've had a lot of things go against us in the last minute and I think the referee was justified," said Blackburn boss Steve Kean. "The lad's foot was maybe five feet in the air."

QPR manager Neil Warnock was a happy man after his side secured a battling 3-2 victory at Stoke, Heidar Helguson bagging a brace despite sustaining an early facial injury.

"You are going to get physical battles when you come to the Britannia and that is why it is such a great result for us -- not many people like to come here," Warnock said.

In other games, Everton came from behind to sink Wolves 2-1, West Bromwich albion defeated Bolton wanderers 2-1 and Sunderland's clash with Fulham ended goalless.
