  1. 90

    The referee blows his whistle for full-time and Arsenal have hung on after a second-half onslaught from the French champions. A winning start for the Gunners, 2-1. Thanks for joining us.

  2. 90

    Cabella goes down easily in the box under a challenge from Diaby and the referee waves away the penalty appeals.

  3. 90

    Arsenal double substitution: Cazorla off Coquelin on. Podolski off, Walcott on.

  4. 87

    Mannone climbs high to claim a deflected cross.

  5. 86

    Free-kick to Montpellier deep in their own half. Arsenal won't mind that.

  6. 85

    Ramsey, Gibbs, Podolski, Cazorla, Ramsey, Vermaelen, Ramsey, Gervinho, offside. Arsenal try to keep the ball and wind down the clock.

  7. 84

    Stambouli battles well for the ball as Montpellier press for the equaliser.

  8. 83

    Belhanda goes into the book for a foul on Arteta.

  9. 82

    Jenkinson hoof, high into the stands as Arsenal defend un-Arsenal-like late on.

  10. 81

    It was a good save by Mannone but it really should be 2-2.

  11. 80

    Montpellier carve out a glorious chance for Belhanda who shows composure in a busy box but places it into the arms of Mannone. Great, great chance for the equaliser.

  12. 78

    Montpellier double change: Camara is replaced by Benjamin Stambouli and Emanuel Herrera is on for Estrada.

  13. 77

    Bocaly battles his way to a throw-in as Montpellier continue to throw everything at this game.

  14. 76

    Giroud is replaced by Aaron Ramsey.

  15. 73

    Bocaly wins a corner for Montpellier off Gervinho, who is doing a lot of defending at the moment.

  16. 71

    Ait-Fana slips at a vital stage, just as he was getting his shot away.

  17. 70

    The hesitation in the Arsenal defence won't have pleased Steve Bould there but Ait-Fana is adjudged to have fouled Mertesacker.

  18. 69

    Bedimo hooks a volley goalwards but Mannone has no problems with that.

  19. 68

    Mounier is replaced by Karim Ait-Fana as Montpellier make a change.

  20. 65

    Great play from Montpellier as Bocaly and Saihi combine in the Arsenal box. The former falls over when it gets tight but the referee is rightly not interested.
