  1. QPR 0 - 1 Arsenal

  2. 90+3

    Rough challenge from Walcott on Traore sees the QPR full-back withdrawn due to injury, and Fabio coming on, but Arsenal have survived the late flurry from the relegated neighbours to move to third on the table.

  3. 90+2

    Off comes Rosicky and on comes Thomas Vermaelen, his influence on the match entirely meant to wind down the clock.

  4. 90+1

    Arsenal hoofing the ball away from goal at every turn as QPR push up for some late drama.

  5. 90

    Three minutes of added time signalled as the Hoops supporters get behind their team in full voice.

  6. 89

    Another late change from Wenger as the Frenchman introduces Jack Wilshere fro Carzorla.

  7. 88

    Zamora with a wasteful shot from range, his effort sailing well wide.

  8. 87

    The Gunners just about poach the ball at the back and try to launch a counter-atcck, but they lose out.

  9. 86

    Nervous times for Arsenal as they struggle to keep possession.

  10. 85

    Just as we say it, Podolski comes off for Alex Oxlade-Chambelain.

  11. 84

    QPR still pressing as Wenger maybe need to get some fresh legs out on the park.

  12. 83

    Great technique from Remy as his strike from the left was goal-bound, had it not been for a full-length save from Szczesny to his left.

  13. 82

    Townsend once more whips in a ball form the right that is cleared by the defence and Arsenal are by no means safe as the match edges to a close.

  14. 81

    Walcott flagged off-sides as the match's solitary scorer tries to add to his tally.

  15. 80

    Townsend gets the better of Monreal yet again out on the right, but his delivery for Zamora ask way too much of the QPR hitman.

  16. 79

    No luck from the set-piece for Arsenal in terms of creating a goalscoring chance inside the box, but they regain possession out wide and look to start pushing up again.

  17. 78

    Jenas earns a booking for his late challenge on Rosicky as Zamora still argues with the referee that he was illegally brought down inside the box by Koscielny moments earlier.

  18. 77

    Green, again, doesn't shirk as he palms down Walcott's snap-shot from distance.

  19. 76

    QPR having to wether the storm as Arsenal throw everything but the kitchen sink at the goalmouth to try and force an opening for their second goal of the match.

  20. 75

    Podolski finally steps up to take and fires it into the wall. Momebnts later and the striker has another crack at goal, this time from open play that is knocked into touch for a corner.
