Thierry Henry came on as a substitute Saturday and scored in the 84th minute to earn Arsenal a 1-1 draw with Tottenham in the last game at Highbury Stadium between the north London rivals. In the other key game Saturday, Liverpool defeated Chelsea 2-1 in the semifinals of the FA Cup at Old Trafford. The loss will prevent Chelsea, which needs only one more point to win the league, from claiming more than one trophy this season. Liverpool, with goals from John Arne Riise and Luis Garcia, will face either West Ham or Middlesbrough in the final. They play Sunday at Villa Park in Birmingham. Henry was again the star for Arsenal. This time he came on as a substitute - he was being rested for Tuesday's deciding second-leg Champions League semifinal - and scored from 10 meters out 22 minutes after entering play. Robbie Keane put Tottenham ahead in the 66th and Tottenham finished with 10 men after Edgar Davids was sent off in the 86th for a second yellow card. The draw leaves Tottenham in fourth place - four points ahead of Arsenal - as the two clubs fight for the last Champions League spot from England. Spurs have two games remaining and Arsenal three. "I was in the dressing room and they were not celebrating... so that is a good sign," Tottenham manager Martin Jol said. "Hopefully we can win the next two matches and then we will be fourth. "For me, I think we deserved something more out of this game. Even an Arsenal fan would agree with me."
