Steven Shingler kicked a dramatic stoppage time penalty from close to halfway as Scarlets won the battle of the Guinness PRO12’s top two 25-22 at Parc y Scarlets. Shingler kicked 15 points, while the Scarlets scored two tries through wing DTH van der Merwe and replacement Tom Williams. Munster’s try was scored by full-back Andrew Conway, with Ian Keatley supplying 17 points with the boot. Scarlets selected four of Wales’ World Cup squad players – Ken Owens, Samson Lee, Jake Ball and Gareth Davies, who was named on the replacements’ bench. Munster, who made eight changes from the win against Glasgow, did not include any of their World Cup players. But despite that Munster fully deserved their 13-6 half-time lead making the most of an error-strewn display by Scarlets in persistent drizzle. Early Munster pressure got them on the scoreboard first with a Keatley penalty on six minutes. Twice Scarlets, who had a nightmare in the line-out, found themselves deep inside the opposition 22 only to fluff both efforts. First they gave away a penalty in the shadow of the Munster posts and then, after a Van der Merwe break, Shingler knocked on just short of the line. On 26 minutes Munster scored a try when full-back Conway pounced on a Scarlets handling error, kicking the ball up field three times before winning the race to the touchdown. Shingler and Keatley swapped penalties before the former kept the Scarlets in touch with his second penalty in the final minute of the first half. Press Association The victory sent unbeaten Scarlets back to the top of the table and in the process ended Munster’s own unbeaten record. In a close encounter Scarlets had trailed 22-19 going into the final seven minutes but fly-half Shingler, who had missed a couple of shots at goal, found the target twice when it mattered. Scarlets made a dramatic start to the second half after Van der Merwe got over in the left corner, but Shingler missed the conversion and the chance to level the scores. But seven minutes later Scarlets erred offside, which allowed Keatley to convert his third penalty. However, replacement Tom Williams scored in the right corner to level the scores at 16-16 before he was sin-binned for a high tackle. While he was off Scarlets managed to keep the scores level. Keatley dropped a goal, a score that was cancelled out by Shingler’s third penalty. But, having missed two long range kicks, Keatley split the posts with a 50-metre effort to put his side in front with seven minutes remaining. That was just enough time for Shingler to kick over two more penalties on 78 and 83 minutes to earn Scarlets a famous win as Munster were forced to make do with a losing bonus point.
Arsene Wenger says Arsenal will face a stern test of their Premier League title credentials when they take on Liverpool on Wednesday.Wenger’s side head to Anfield two points clear at the head of the table and having won five of their last six league games.The weekend FA Cup third round victory over Sunderland extended their winning run and Wenger acknowledges his side’s recent success has strengthened the belief they can push on during the second half of the season.The Gunners manager, though, knows any meeting with Liverpool carries an extra edge that was demonstrated when the sides met on Merseyside last season, with the home side clinching a point thanks to Martin Skrtel’s stoppage-time equaliser.”The momentum creates confidence and confidence is vital at that level,” Wenger said.”In December and now in January we have been consistent and we go into a very important part of the season because we play many games. “Every time we go to Anfield, we face a team who is up for it. It’s always a ferocious battle, no matter who the manager is.”They had a very strong manager before, they have a very strong one now and Jurgen Klopp has the personality to do well there.”Wenger hopes to add Basle midfielder Mohamed Elneny to his squad this week.”I expect Mohamed yes, we are positive that this week it can happen,” he said.And his options will shortly be strengthened by the return to fitness of Alexis Sanchez, although the Chile striker will not make the trip to Liverpool. “We think he will be short for Wednesday,” said Wenger.”He has a chance to be available for Sunday against Stoke. He is always keen to play.”BIG CHALLENGELiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking forward rather than back as he prepares to take on Wenger in English football for the first time.The pair have previously met at Champions League level with honours almost even, Wenger enjoying three wins to Klopp’s two and a draw from his time in charge at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. Klopp took over at Liverpool after the sides had drawn 0-0 at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League in August.And the German admits watching Wenger’s work at closer quarters has impressed him even more as the Liverpool boss prepares for huge back-to-back home games against the Gunners and Manchester United.”We shouldn’t talk too much about my experiences of playing against Arsenal. We will find a current plan for this game,” Klopp said.”It’s always a big challenge to play against clubs like Arsenal or Manchester United.”It’s a good challenge, not easy, but really interesting. We have to make good decisions in the right moment. We are looking forward to these games. “My respect for Arsene Wenger grows day by day. It’s really intensive to work in the Premier League and he’s done a brilliant job.”Klopp’s remarks regarding Wenger, looking to lead Arsenal to a fourth league title but first since 2004, reflect his initial impressions of managing in England.Klopp, who took over at Anfield in October, said that the number of fixtures has been the biggest difference to managing on the continent, with Liverpool facing the possibility of playing nine games in January.That workload is stretching a squad that has been badly hit by injuries, although Klopp hopes to have a number of key players back for the game on Wednesday when the eighth-placed Reds will be looking for a third win in four league games.After having no senior central defenders available for last Friday’s 2-2 FA Cup draw at Exeter, ex-Arsenal defender Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho are both expected to be fit. Captain Jordan Henderson is also set to return in midfield and winger Jordon Ibe is fit after hamstring trouble.–
