General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +3 There goes the final whistle - Arsenal start with a win!
90' +1 We are now into the first of two additional minutes at the end of this game.
89' CLOSE! Following a brilliant one-touch move by Arsenal, Sanchez is whiskers away from adding a fourth goal as his audacious chip from a tight angle drifts narrowly wide of the far post.
88' The Gunners will have been disappointed not to have qualified for this season's UEFA Champions League, although the Europa League does offer them another potential route back into Europe's premier competition. The omens are certainly good for Arsenal, who have reached the final in three of their last four seasons outside the Champions League - doing so in the Cup Winners' Cup in 1994 and 1995, as well as the 2000 UEFA Cup.
85' Arsenal are set to extend their run of having not lost a home game on a Thursday since Boxing Day 1974. That record appeared to be in doubt after the first half, but the Gunners have certainly turned things around since the break.
82' R. Nelson enters the game and replaces T. Walcott.
With the job almost done, Wenger gives Walcott a breather and replaces him with Reiss Nelson.
81' Bellerín has scored a goal for Arsenal!
GAME OVER!!! Bellerin wraps it up! Kolasinac and Sanchez combine down the left flank and the former's ball into the box finds Walcott, whose shot is parried straight into the path of Bellerin. The Spaniard makes no mistake with the rebound to surely seal the points for Arsenal.
79' It is worth giving a mention to Wilshere, who is making his first Arsenal appearance in 383 days. The England midfielder will be desperate to force his way into Gareth Southgate's FIFA World Cup squad providing the Three Lions qualify, but needs to make the most of an opportunity like this one in order to have any chance of doing so.
77' CHANCE! Wilshere gets involved for the first time with a well-timed through ball into the path of Sanchez, who does not connect properly and sends his attempted finish wide of the target. That was a great opportunity to kill this match off and seal the points.
76' Y. Ōsako enters the game and replaces L. Klünter.
A third and final change for the visitors as Klünter goes off to be replaced by Yūya Ōsako.
