  1. It's all over. In fairness it was all over at half-time thanks to three great goals in the first half. Sunderland did better in the second half and got their goal after Koscielny had put the result beyond doubt. Arsenal 4-1 Sunderland.

  2. 90+2

    Arsenal piling a bit of pressure on at the end here.

  3. 90+1

    Giroud attempts an acrobatic finish from Wilshere's cross, but O'Shea cuts it out before the ball gets to the Frenchman.

  4. 90

    Three minutes added on at the end of 90 minutes.

  5. 89

    Arsenal see off another Sunderland attack. The Black Cats had numbers on their side there, but failed to get a shot off.

  6. 88

    Podolski wins a corner after a good run forward. Comes to nothing though.

  7. 87

    Wilshere looks like he'll carry on.

  8. 85

    Wilshere seems to be struggling with a knock, but Arsenal don't have any substitutes left. Big decision from Wenger if he is to come off.

  9. 84

    Arsenal have a free kick as Arteta is brought down by Scocco. The Gunners take it short and Gnabry gets a shot away, but it's straight at Mannone.

  10. 83

    Borini caught offside once again.

  11. 81

    Sunderland with another free kick. Szcezny punches clear, but only to Giacherrini with a cracking first-time strike low into the corner. Terrific goal.

  12. 80

    O'Shea testing his goalkeeper's footwork there with a pass back with two Arsenal players charging in. Mannone does well to get it back to his centre-back, though.

  13. 79

    Arsenal with the possession.

  14. 78

    Larsson with a screaming shot from the free kick, but it curls just wide of the far post. Szczesny definitely beaten if that was on target.

  15. 77

    Sunderland with a free kick on the edge of the area after Giacherrini is fouled by Jenkinson.

  16. 76

    Wilshere slips Gnabry through on goal after winning the ball in midfield, but the German slips as he gets his shot away and Sunderland clear.

  17. 75

    Alonso with the crucial stop as he prevents Jenkinson's ball into the box. At the other end Sagna makes a great stop after Giacherrini had gone through on goal.

  18. 74

    Gnabry's first involvement is winning the ball back from a Sunderland throw-in.

  19. 73

    Scocco comes on to replace Ki, while Gnabry is coming on to replace Rosicky.

  20. 72

    Arsenal still passing it around in the opposition half.
