  1. Thanks for tuning in this afternoon. Stay with us for the full report.

  2. Full time! It's all over in North London and Arsenal are pegged to a 3-3 draw by Norwich!

  3. 90+4

    Ruddy makes another crucial save to deny the Gunners yet again. The keeper has been a hero in these dying minutes...

  4. 90+3

    There's an Arsenal corner after a shot is deflected behind. Ruddy saves Chamberlain's effort from Van Persie's corner.

  5. 90+2

    Wilbraham gets a yellow after shouldering in to get the ball.

  6. 90+1

    Four minutes of stoppage time are added once again. There's a clash of heads between Wilbraham and Koscielny.

  7. 90

    We're into the final minute of regular time and it's 3-3 at the Emirates. There's a late chance for Arsenal as Song gets a backheel flick at goal but Ruddy makes a crucial save.

  8. 88

    Arsenal are calling for a penalty after Van Persie appears to be fouled in the area by Naughton.

  9. 87

    Arsenal win a throw half-way inside their own half as the minutes trickle down. Is there time for them to save this again?

  10. 86

    Just when Arsenal thought they'd salvaged it Norwich pull off another surprise. There's a shocking miss from Van Persie as he tentatively pokes a close-range ball at Ruddy, allowing him to make an easy save.

  11. Morison, in plenty of space, latches onto a Howson pass in the box and fires past Szczey, making it look so easy as the ball lands in the bottom corner.

  12. 85


  13. 84

    Brave goalkeeping from Szczey, who dives to make a low catch on a Johnson cross from the right.

  14. 83

    Coquelin fires in a cross which Van Persie tries to chase down but Ruddy comes out to make a secure catch.

  15. 82

    Norwich are looking for a way back but Howson can't keep the ball in down the left. Johnson tries a shot from the edge of the box but he lifts it over the bar with Rosicky and Song closing him down.

  16. The skipper is understandably pleased with that one. Chamberlain slots the ball into the box after some poor defending from Norwich and Van Persie makes no mistake in sliding it home to put the Gunners in control again.

  17. 80


  18. 79

    Gervinho storms up the pitch and feeds Gibbs on the edge of the box. The Arsenal man lifts a cross into the area but Ruddy leaps to grab it.

  19. 78

    Morison backheels the ball out of Koscielny's hands as he prepares to take a free-kick and is lucky to not get a punishment.

  20. 77

    There's another riff between Holt and Song after the former commits a dubious challenge but gets away without a card.
