  1. So Arsenal let a two-goal slip as Walcott and Giroud efforts are cancelled out by Huntelaar and Farfan. There will be a regret for Arsenal but they probably would have taken a point before kick-off. Olympiakos beat Montpellier which means all is still to play for in the group. Arsenal's trip to Olympiakos on the final group game could yet be a knock-out meeting. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.

  2. 90 + 4


  3. 90 + 4

    What a chance for Walcott. He gets behind the Arsenal defence and manages to get a shot away but it hits the legs of Unnerstall.

  4. 90 + 4

    Schalke make their final change. Barnetta is on in place of Holtby.

  5. 90 + 3

    The ball is not sticking for up top for Arsenal but Schalke are not exactly causing too many scares. Fuchs' cross goes behind.

  6. 90 + 2

    Coquelin has the chance to get his head up close to the Schalke box and he looks for a pass to Giroud. The striker cannot make anything of it and takes a bit of a whack in the back from a defender.

  7. 90 + 1

    ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of four minutes added time before the final whistle.

  8. 90

    Arsenal make a double change. Santos and Coquelin come on in place of Cazorla and Podolski.

  9. 89

    More good work from Mannone as he vitally punches clear a cross just as Huntelaar's eyes were lighting up.

  10. 88

    Arsenal go on a rare move forward and Walcott wants a free-kick on the edge of the box. It looked like he could have had a case but play is waved on and Schalke win a throw-in deep in Arsenal territory.

  11. 87

    Schalke are seeing all of the ball in the final minutes. Arsenal cannot get a kick at the moment. But they are keeping Schalke in deep areas.

  12. 86

    The Schlake fans let Vermaelen know what they think as he hobbles off the pitch having received treatment.

  13. 85

    Possibly running down the clock but Vermaelen goes down after a slide tackle and is receiving treatment.

  14. 84

    Huntelaar cannot quiet get over the top of a cross as he heads over the crossbar. He was offside anyway bit that is a warning as the final whistle approaches.

  15. 83

    This is very unlike Wenger this season not to have made any substitutions. Will tired legs pay the price in the closing minutes?

  16. 82

    Podolski tries to latch onto a bouncing ball inside the penalty area but the highly-rated Papadopoulos gets his body in the way to prevent the Germany player from meeting the ball.

  17. 81

    Mannone has probably been Arsenal's man of the match this evening. He has made several very important saves.

  18. 80

    Jones forces another good save from Mannone after cutting in from the right with a low show to the near post.

  19. 79

    The game has become a little scrappy. Both sides now look as if they are focusing on not losing the game rather than going gung-ho for the winner.

  20. 78

    Wilshere makes a tired challenge on Jones close to the touchline. The Arsenal youngster looks out on his feet at the moment.
