  • GOAL!!! ARSENAL ARE GIFTED THE LEAD!! Nketiah follows in as the ball is passed back to McCarthy and the Saints goalkeeper inexplicably passes the ball at the Gunners striker! It ricochets back towards goal and the young forward gets there first and rolls into an empty net! It's 1-0 to Arsenal!

  • Hojbjerg plays a terrible back-pass from the left and it runs for Aubameyang to latch onto. Bednarek - the last man - slides in and takes the striker out, and he's sent off for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity!

  • GOAL!! WILLOCK SURELY SEALS THE WIN FOR ARSENAL!! Lacazette takes the free-kick and his first effort is blocked by the wall, but it ricochets back to him. The striker then thumps a half-volley at goal that McCarthy spills, and Willock is on hand to tuck the ball into the bottom corner! It's 2-0 to Arsenal now!
