Copy from Football Unlimited of 12/05/1999.
Arsenal's chances of retaining the title were dealt a severe blow here last night when they were beaten by a late winner from Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who dived to head home from Harry Kewell's left-wing cross with four minutes left.
The Gunners twice had efforts cleared off the line and even the guile of Kanu, who came on as a late substitute, could not find the key to unlock a stubborn Leeds defence.
They must now hope that Manchester United lose at Blackburn tonight to rekindle their fading hopes.
