56'
Carroll!!! How did you miss that?? The free-kick isn't dealt with by D Luiz and Tierney, the ball goes to Hendrick on the edge of the box, he picks out Carroll at the far post and his shot across the keeper goes wide of the post! That should have been a goal.

45'
HT: Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle! Half-time at the Emirates and the Gunners have been the better side despite the scoreline. Dubravka had to make a fine save to deny Aubameyang while Nelson and Pepe tested the keeper early on. Nelson also had a good opportunity, but he was unable to control the ball. Arteta's men have had plenty of corners, but failed to make use of them. Newcastle have had a few attacks, but doing nothing of note going forward so far. Back shortly!

33'

33'
Great defence by Hayden!!! Pepe and Auba pulled one a one-two and then Hayden dispossesses the former to concede the corner.
30'
Longstaff gives the ball to Almiron, but he's unable to find a teammate in the box. Willian counters, is knocked down by Krafth and is lucky not to be carded.
28'
What happened there?? Tierney goes down the far side, he cuts back for Nelson, but he's unable to control under pressure from Newcastle defenders and the chance goes a begging.
26'
Carroll is booked for catching Willock in the face with his arm.
24'
Aubameyang!!!! Arsenal win a free-kick, Aubameyang goes down Newcastle's left after a long pass by D Luiz and the Gabonese's powerful effort is terrifically saved by the goalie. Willian then hits the rebound over.
20'
Arsenal lose the ball to Joelinton, he attacks and then takes too long to give the ball to Carroll to his left and his cross is blocked by D Luiz. Almiron is caught offside later in the move. Missed out there the Magpies.
18'
Pepe passes to Willock in the box, his touch is too heavy and the ball goes out for a goal kick.
17'
Very little to report in the last few minutes, to be honest.

Pepe tries his luck this time down this near side, but the strike is tame.
1'
Nelson!! Mari sends a long ball forward to Nelson who controls and then hits a shot along the ground which is simple for Dubravka.
1'
Newcastle get us going from right to left! Both teams in their usual colours!
