General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 A minute to play now. Not much is happening, which is wonderful for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.
90' +1 Walcott hits the post! He sprinted onto a Giroud flick on, took it past Coloccini and tried to poke it beyond Harper. He does so but it agonisingly rolls against the post. Just over two minutes left to play now!
90' Four minutes of stoppage time. This is unbearable.
89' J. Wilshere enters the game and replaces Cazorla.
Unbelievably, Gareth Bale has put Tottenham ahead at White Hart Lane and Arsenal now just have just over two to three minutes you would expect to close this out. What drama!
87' More drama in the Arsenal penalty area as Debuchy is brought down by Cazorla in the box but nothing is given by Howard Webb. The scores are still level at White Hart Lane, where Tottenham are now playing against 10 men. It increasingly looks like Arsenal will take 4th place.
85' The atmosphere is increasingly muted at St James' Park and we're in the final five minutes of normal time now. Arsenal look like they are about to close the game out but the nerves are still prominent and they can't seem to get their foot on the ball.
82' Walcott's corner is overhit and is collected by Cazorla, who effortlessly jinks inside the full-back and cuts across the ball with a swinging effort that can only curl wide. You would think there are just about 10 minutes left to play here.
81' K. Gibbs gets yellow.
Half a penalty shout for Newcastle as Steven Taylor goes up for a challenge. However, Koscielny's interception is firm and strong, not for the first time today, and the Gunners clear.
80' A. Campbell enters the game and replaces M. Yanga-Mbiwa.
79' Newcastle pushing forward now in search of an equaliser and Arsenal are looking increasingly nervous. The Magpies are bringing on local boy Adam Campbell. Could we have a Wayne Rooney moment here? It's an attacking move by Alan Pardew as Yanga-Mbiwa is brought off for the youngster.
