  1. An excellent night for the Gunners as they cruised to a 3-0 win in their Champions League play-off round first-leg clash at a very disappointing Fenerbahce. The one blow being a nasty-looking head injury to Laurent Koscielny.

  2. 90

    Excellent from Szczesny again as he pulls off a fine stop to deny Emenike's well-struck volley. There will be three added minutes.

  3. The lively Walcott is replaced by Monreal.

  4. 85

    Emenike gets in between Sagna and Mertesacker but sends his header over the bar.

  5. 83

    Good stop from Szczesny to deny a Kadlec volley as Arsenal suffer a rare lapse at the back.

  6. Fenerbahce also make a change as Meireles is replaced by Potuk.

  7. Podolski comes on for Giroud, who put in a decent shift for the Gunners.

  8. Kadlec went into the book for the challenge that gave away the pen.

  9. GOAL! Arsenal rampant as Giroud fires home from the spot after Kadlec brings down Walcott in the area.

  10. Walcott goes down and Arsenal have a penalty.

  11. Szczesny sees yellow for time-wasting.

  12. 74

    Demirel gives the ball away and Walcott is in but he blazes over the bar, while at the other end Meireles fires across goal.

  13. 71

    Sow is allowed to turn and get his shot in from the edge of the box but it goes just over.

  14. Bruno Alves goes in the book for a challenge on Mertesacker.

  15. GOAL! Arsenal double their lead as Ramsey takes aim from 25 yards and although Demirel got his hand to it he couldn't keep it out.

  16. Emenike is on for Webo, who had a bit of a stinker up front.

  17. 62

    Fantastic run from Wilshere before he tests the palms of Demirel - great stuff from the Arsenal man.

  18. 59

    Webo tries his luck from distance but screws his shot horribly wide.

  19. 55

    Szczesny takes a blow to the face after bravely keeping out Sow's effort but he's fine to continue.

  20. 53

    It was a lovely move from the Gunners and the are are almost in again as Walcott faces up to Demirel but the keeper does well to keep him out.
