Minute   Description
90' +4 That's it! Arsenal grind out an important win!

90' +1 Four minutes of stoppage time to round off this one.
90' Sagna needs a bit of treatment, but Mark Clattenburg is instructing him to make his way behind the line to do so in order to round this game off quickly.
88' Giroud, with the confidence coursing through his veins after that goal, whacks a half-volley in with an incredible degree of difficulty. The shot, however, sails into the stands. Hard to fault him though after another tireless shift up front.
