  1. Thanks for joining me this afternoon and for all your comments - sorry I couldn't publish them all. Do stick around for match reports and reaction.

  2. A comfortable victory for Arsenal to give their top four hopes a real boost. Reading boss Nigel Adkins has a real fight on his hands if he is to keep the Royals up.

  3. 90+3

    Arsenal 4 Reading 1

  4. 90+1

    Reading clear, but Arsenal regain posssession on the halfway line.

  5. 90

    Another lovely cross by Cazorla is headed over his own bar by Shorey, corner to Arsenal.

  6. 87

    The game has slowed right down now, it just seems a case of playing out time. The match was gone for Reading a long time ago.

  7. 83

    More lovely stuff as Cazorla's lofted ball finds Rosicky in the area. All he needs to do is slot home, but instead he tries to pass to a team-mate, allowing Reading to clear.

  8. 80

    Change for Reading: Garath McCleary is on for Robson-Kanu.

  9. 80

    Arsenal really turning it on now, some lovely passing on the edge of the box before Arteta is flagged offside.

    Goal for Arsenal!! Arteta sends Taylor the wrong way!!

    Penalty to Arsenal!! Oxlade-Chamberlain tripped in the area by Mariappa!!

    Sub for Reading: Hope Akpan is on for Jem Karacan.

  13. 75

    Changes for Arsenal: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski replace Gervinho and Olivier Giroud.

  14. 71

    Sub for Arsenal: Kieran Gibbs is on for Monreal, who clattered with the post trying to stop Robson-Kanu from nodding home Reading's goal.

  15. 69

    Is the comeback on? McAnuff curls in an inviting cross from the left, allowing Robson-Kanu to convert at the far post with a diving header.

  16. 69

    Goal for Reading!! Robson-Kanu!!

  17. 67

    Reading make a mess of a corner and the ball breaks to Gervinho, who sprints half the length of the pitch before laying it off to Giroud to drill home low beyond Taylor.

  18. 67

    Goal for Arsenal!! Giroud!!!

  19. 65

    Reading scramble the corner clear. In other news, the snow has stopped.

  20. 64

    It's sunny at the Emirates, but it has also started snowing. It is nearly April right? Back on the pitch Arsenal win yet another corner...
