Cesc Fabregas' cool finish put Arsenal Club level two minutes after the break, but Cristiano Ronaldo slid home Patrice Evra's cross nine minutes from time. But Gallas then scrambled in Gael Clichy's cross to earn a point.

Arsenal still on the top of the Premier League.

Lehmann Banks on Arsenal Club Recall

Lehmann Banks on Arsenal RecallKeeper Jens Lehmann expects to return to the Arsenal team for the Premier League game against Bolton on Saturday. The 37-year-old's mistake in his last Arsenal appearance on 19 August led to a Blackburn equaliser and he has not played the last 10 games in goal.

He played for Germany in the draw with the Republic of Ireland on Saturday and claims his absence for the Gunners was an injury and not a selection issue. "I am fully fit and expect to be back against Bolton," said Lehmann.

"Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not told me anything but I am here now and I expect him to play me, so no worries."

Manuel Almunia has played in nine of the last 10 games for the Gunners, with Lukasz Fabianski featuring in the Carling Cup win over Newcastle.

Lehmann aggravated an Achilles tendon problem when on international duty for Germany in August but has since has treatment for an elbow problem.

Striker Da Silva Gets Work Permit to Arsenal

Striker Da Silva Gets Work Permit to ArsenalArsenal striker Eduardo da Silva has been granted a work permit by the Home Office following a hearing on Thursday.

The Gunners signed the 24-year-old Brazilian-born Croatian international striker from Dinamo Zagreb in July.

His application for a work permit went to an appeal because he had not met the criteria of 75% of international appearances over the past two years.

But Thursday's appeal proved successful and he celebrated by scoring the winner in a 2-1 friendly win over Lazio Club.

Henry Agent Dismisses Barca Claim

Henry Agent Dismisses Barca ClaimThierry Henry's management group has rubbished reports from France that the Arsenal star has agreed a provisional three-year contract with Barcelona. France Football magazine says Henry's agent met with Barca's sporting director Txiki Beguiristain last week.

But Jeff Weston, from the SEM Group which looks after Henry, told BBC Sport on Tuesday: "No such meeting took place. That is absolute rubbish. "There's never been any question of him not being at Arsenal next season."

Henry 29, signed a new four-year contract with the Gunners last year but appeared to cast doubt on his future last week when he said he was flattered by interest from AC Milan.

Newcastle Football Club 0-0 Arsenal Football Club

Newcastle 0-0 ArsenalNewcastle Football Club and Arsenal Football Club were both well below their best in a dull draw. The closest Newcastle Club came to breaking the deadlock was when James Milner's looping cross cannoned back off the bar with Jens Lehmann groping the air.

Arsenal Team were just as poor, but almost snatched a win when Gilberto Silva had two successive efforts cleared off the line by Nolberto Solano.

A major concern for Newcastle will be the groin injury to keeper Shay Given, which forced him off after 25 minutes.

Wenger Denies Misconduct Charge

Wenger Denies Misconduct ChargeArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has denied a Football Association charge of improper conduct. The charge related to comments Wenger made after the Carling Cup final fracas and defeat to Chelsea at Cardiff. He was asked to explain his claim "the whole system is not honest", a reference to FA disciplinary rules.

Wenger also suggested the assistant whom referee Howard Webb consulted before sending off striker Emmanuel Adebayor was a "liar". This was not the first time Wenger had been at odds with the Football Association this season. A date for his personal hearing into an improper conduct charge after a confrontation with referee Steve Bennett during the Portsmouth match at the Emirates Stadium in December has still not been finalised.

And Wenger was fined £10,000 and warned about his future conduct for a touchline bust-up with then West Ham manager Alan Pardew at the end of November.
