Arsenal V Eintracht Frankfurt - As it happened.

Join us for live coverage of this exciting Europa League game between Arsenal and Eintracht Frankfurt at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal only need a draw in tonight's game to secure their place in the knockout stages!

FULL TIME!!! Arsenal suffer their first home defeat of the season and have now gone 7 games without a win, as they lose 1-2 to Eintracht Frankfurt, who came alive in the second half. Boos ring around the Emirates and there will be even more of a worry now for Emery and his job. Arsenal can still qualify and are still top of their group, but this result is not what they wanted at all.
It should have been three as Da Cost has a shot but it goes just wide of the post!
Guendouzi gets a yellow for a collision with Kostic
3 minutes of added time!!
Free kick for Frankfurt and Xhaka goes in the book for dissent as he got the ball and not the man and slammed the ball down
Arsenal have totally lost their momentum and Eintracht Frankfurt look as comfortable as they can be, as they are a completely different team to the first half.
Arsenal make their final change as a limping Mustafi comes off and is replaced by Mustafi
Mustafi goes in the book for a foul on Paciencia
Free kick for Arsenal as Saka is brought down Da Costa, free kick is about 30 yards out. Xhaka takes it, but it comes to nothing.
Gacinovic has a shot blocked out for a corner by Sokratis. Eintracht looking on top now. Can Arsenal find a way back into this game?
After Kostic's shot was saved by the keeper and went out for a corner, Kamada recieves the corner ball, as he is on his own, unmarked in the box and just slots the ball into the back of the net. Arsenal not convincing now and Frankfurt have turned the game around.
Substitution for Arsenal, as Ozil makes his way onto the pitch to replace Martinelli!
Abraham sees yellow after a late challenge on Guendouzi, he doesn't get the ball at all
After they have got a bit of momentum, Eintracht Frankfurt find the back of the net after Kamada curls the ball from the edge of the box and strikes it sweetly into the back of the net. 1-1
Although they haven't had any real chances yet in this half, Frankfurt have come to life a bit more and look ready to fight for the points.
Corner for Frankfurt! It is easily dealt with
Chambers has a chance to make it too after some good play from Xhaka sees him receive the ball in the box, but he skies the ball over the goal!
Willock is passes through the ball and runs into the right of the box, but his shot is saved by the keeper and the ball goes out wide! Golden opportunity for him there
The second half is underway!
Going into the second half, Frankfurt make a change as Andre Silva comes off for Gacinovic. No changes for Arsenal
HALF TIME! An added time goal sees Arsenal go into the break in the lead. Eintracht have been frankly rubbish and have failed to create anything real and convincing. Arsenal just needed to do their bit and get a goal to give them the confidence to win this game. 1-0 at half time
Xhaka has come back on the pitch now!
Martinelli is on the right hand side in the box and drives the ball into Aubameyang on the other side, who powerfully kicks the ball past the keeper and into the back of the net! Great play for Arsenal, keeper could have done better! 1-0!! His tenth goal of the season
5 minutes of added time!!
Xhaka has gone down injured and is receiving treatment, not good news for Arsenal, who have only just got him back. This could be two of Arsenal's central midfielders going off injured in the first half.
Arsenal have a bit of good attacking play as they put even more pressure on Eintracht. Willock puts the ball in the box, but Ronnow saves Saka's shot, only for Chambers to have a shot from long distance, but it is another good save from the keeper to deny them the goal.
The first sign of life from Eintracht as they look to put a bit of pressure on in their attacking end. Da Costa is received the ball in the box and tries to cross it further in, but Sokratis heads it out for a corner, which also comes to nothing.
Martinelli receives a yellow card for a late foul on Kostic!
Arsenal are forced into making their first change as David Luiz cannot continue, Guendouzi comes on for him
Arsenal have an attempt after Saka's pace poses a threat to Eintracht. He gets past the defenders and the keeper comes out, he tries to flick the ball over the goalkeeper, but doesn't quite manage it. Ronnow down injured now
Arsenal corner! It is not a very well taken corner and it is easily dealt with
Xhaka curled the free kick into the box but Eintracht manage to deal with it
Kostic goes into the book after a scuffle with Chambers as he pulls his shirt to stop him from getting away. Arsenal free kick
An Arsenal corner sees a good save by Ronnow as Willock's ball is cleared out for the corner. Martinelli has a shot on the right as he is clear on his own in the box, but he is left wondering how it didn't go in after the keeper makes a great save!
David Luiz is back on the pitch and able to continue
David Luiz is down injured in the build up to the last game play, as he won the ball back for his team.
Arsenal have the first shot of the game after Saka crosses the ball into the box, but there is confusion between Willock and Aubameyang and none of them create a convincing chance.
Hasebe is in pain after he challenges Willock and Willock just steps on the back of his ankle. He is trying to run it off.
The corner is cleared away. Arsenal do need to tighten up their back line, as they have conceded 16 goals in their last 8 matches in all competitions.
Corner for Eintracht as they attempt to cross the ball into the box and it is deflected out for the corner
Willock is floored by Hinterregger after a little whack on the Achilles heel due to a collision between the two. No card is given and Willock is up and running again
We have kick off at a very empty Emirates Stadium. Eintracht get things underway!
Xhaka is not captain tonight, but has been brought back, can he redeem himself?
Kick off soon!!
The Gunners, who are top of Group F, will qualify for the Europa League last 32 with a draw against the German side. They will go through regardless of the outcome at Emirates Stadium if Standard Liege lose their match against Vitoria Guimaraes.
Granit Xhaka has been named in Unai Emery's starting line up! He returns to the starting line up for the first time since October 27th and will be hoping to redeem himself tonight!
