Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 OFF THE POST! Giroud is denied his hat-trick right at the death as his finish from close range rattles the cross bar!
90' +2 T. Walcott has scored a goal for Arsenal! Assist by J. Wilshere.
GOAL! Hat-trick hero! Theo Walcott rounds off the scoring, for now, with a delightful little chip over Tim Krul. Newcastle had stopped playing because of what they thought was an infringement, Walcott simply carried on and capped off a great performance with a third goal.
90' +1 D. Santon gets yellow.
90' Frustration boiling over for Newcastle as Santon takes Giroud out from behind as the striker dispossesses him.
88' J. Tavernier enters the game and replaces S. Marveaux.
87' O. Giroud has scored a goal for Arsenal! Assist by T. Walcott.
GOAL! Six of the best! Two in as many minutes for Giroud! Walcott runs at the Magpies' defence and loses the ball, only for it to roll into the path of his strike partner, who took one touch to set himself before thumping his shot past Krul.
86' F. Coquelin enters the game and replaces Cazorla.
85' O. Giroud has scored a goal for Arsenal! Assist by T. Walcott.
GOAL! Olivier Giroud comes off the bench to secure the three points for Arsenal. Walcott's cross is out of the top drawer, it invites the big Frenchman to launch himself at the ball and he connects emphatically with a diving header past Krul.
83' S. Ferguson enters the game and replaces D. Simpson.
Close! Walcott is a yard away from completing his hat-trick and what a fine goal it would have been. The England striker side-stepped one defender before attempting to bend one round Krul into the far post. It might be very, very premature, but the Henry resemblance is uncanny.
82' A. Ramsey enters the game and replaces L. Podolski.
Shola Ameobi enters the game and replaces G. Bigirimana.
