Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 Arsenal are keeping possession well and are frustrating a Norwich side who clearly feel hard done by after they put in such a wonderful defence effort only to be pulled apart in the final moments. Only a few more moments to play now...
90' +3 R. Snodgrass gets yellow.
The once sour atmosphere at the Emirates has now turned into one of both joy and relief. Despite the job being seemingly completed, Arsenal continue to push forward, looking for a fourth.
90' +1 L. Podolski has scored a goal for Arsenal! Assist by T. Walcott.
Goal! Arsenal have got a third! Walcott dribbles his way into the Norwich box before passing to Podolski on the edge of the area who turns and fires into the corner of the net. Arsenal have all but won it now. 3-1!
90' S. Jackson enters the game and replaces A. Tettey.
Chance! Arsenal almost score a third after sloppy defensive play from Bassong allows Giroud to fire towards goal but Bunn parries the ball over the bar for a corner.
Six minutes of stoppage time will be played.
88' O. Giroud has scored a goal for Arsenal! Assist by A. Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Goal! Arsenal make it 2-1 in the dying moments of the game! Oxlade-Chamberlain and Podolski link up well with a lovely one-two before the young Englishman squares the ball towards Giroud. The Frenchman sticks out a toe to try and put the ball away but it's actually Bassong who turns it into the back of his own net. 2-1!
87' The hosts are clearly not content with just one point and they're pushing hard for a winner. Norwich look shaky after conceding in such a manner.
85' Penalty goal scored by Arteta for Arsenal!
Goal! Bunn dives the right way but Arteta's shot is too powerful and it ends up in the back of the net. 1-1!
83' M. Bunn gets yellow.
Penalty to Arsenal! The ball pinballs around the Norwich penalty area and Kamara tugs at the shirt of Giroud, bringing the Frenchman down and giving Arteta the perfect opportunity to save the game from the spot.
80' A. Oxlade-Chamberlain enters the game and replaces B. Sagna.
Arsenal need a goal and they need one quick. Last roll of the dice from Wenger as he brings on Oxlade-Chamberlain in place of Sagna in the hope of forcing an equaliser with only ten minutes left to play.
79' Podolski hits the crossbar! Giroud chests the ball down into the path of Podolski and he fires towards goal but his shot rattles off the crossbar. It looks like Bunn got a fingertip to the shot, and, if so, that might well be the save of the match.
