  • 88'

    Aarons close! He drives into the area from the right side and does well to beat Kolasinac down the line! He plays a shot-cross towards Leno who gets a vital touch out for a corner!

  • 86'

    Chance for Norwich! Hernandez crosses into the area which is headed out, but only as far as Amadou just inside the area. The Norwich man sets himself up well but slices his volleyed attempt up into the area. Norwich eventually win a corner from the play.

  • 83'

    Sub: There's a change for Norwich as Buendia comes on for Cantwell.

  • 81'

    Arsenal attack! Chambers crosses into the area and it's cleared only as far as Ozil on the right side of the area. He hits a left-footed shot at goal but doesn't connect well, and Krul collects easily.

  • 80'

    Risky from Amadou! The striker plays a poor ball back to Krul with Aubameyang running onto it! Krul does well to commit a well-timed slide tackle which pops the ball up into the air, but Aubameyang's eventual cross doesn't find a teammate.

  • 78'

    Sub: Arsenal make their second change as Saka comes on for Guendouzi in a tactical switch.

  • 75'

    There's a break in play now as Amadou stays down after a challenge by Xhaka as they challenged for a header. No free-kick given though, and he'll be fine to continue.

  • 72'

    Chance! Cantwell links up with a teammate and runs onto the ball in the area, but Luiz gets back in time to block the shot from close range! Norwich are really knocking on the door now, although the corner comes to nothing.

  • 70'

    Sub: Arsenal make their first change of the match as Torreira comes on for Willock in a tactical change.

  • 67'

    Free-kick! Pukki does excellently to nutmeg Mustafi and then draw a foul against Chambers right outside the area! McLean crosses it in, but Leno comes out to touch it beyond the far post for a corner.

  • 66'

    There's a break in play as Willock is down with a slight injury. He's up on his feet though and looks fine to continue for now.

  • 63'

    Pukki comes close! The striker receives a pass into the area, touches it past Mustafi and shoots towards the bottom left corner from close range but Leno saves with his feet! That's three massive chances for Norwich in just three minutes!

  • 62'

    Just wide! The ball comes to Cantwell inside the area after a blocked effort and the Norwich man drives a one-touch effort inches past the right post with Leno rooted to the ground! What a chance!

  • 60'

    POST! Arsenal lose possession in their own half and McLean picks it up, drives towards the area and fires a good effort towards the bottom right corner. It looks to be heading in but Leno touches onto the post and out for a corner!

  • 57'

    GOAL! Aubameyang gets his second of the afternoon! A corner is played into the area and falls to Aubameyang at the far post after a blocked shot. The striker composes himself and fires into the far corner to equalise!

  • 52'

    Penalty appeal! Ozil drives down the left side of the box and plays a cross which hits the hand of Zimmermann, but the ref says no penalty! It definitely hit the hand of Zimmermann, but he was very close to Ozil which is why he's gotten away with it.

  • 51'

    Willock plays the ball through for Aubameyang to run onto, but Godfrey shows a brilliant turn of pace to get back and retrieve the ball ahead of the Arsenal man.

  • 48'

    Half time! The referee brings an end to the half, with the score at Carrow Road: Norwich 2-1 Arsenal!

  • 48'

    There's a break in play as McLean needs treatment after being caught late by Xhaka. It's a free-kick to Norwich but there's no yellow card as play resumes.

  • 47'

    GOAL! Cantwell puts Norwich back ahead! Hernandez drives into the area from the left side. He plays it back to Cantwell on the edge of the box who controls before passing into the far corner with great composure! Norwich 2-1 Arsenal!

  • 46'

    Second half! Norwich get the match restarted.

  • 45'

    There will be a minimum of 3 minutes added time.

  • 44'

    Yellow card! McLean lunges in on Guendouzi with his studs showing. You might see a challenge like that awarded a red card on some days, but it's just a yellow today which the Arsenal players aren't the least bit happy about!

  • 40'

    Hernandez drives into the area from the left side but Xhaka is able to intervene and play the ball out for a corner. Good defending.

  • 40'

    Shot! The corner comes in and is headed out to Amadou just inside the area. He controls on the chest and hits a half-volley which goes wide of goal! It wasn't very close to the target, but that's still a very good chance.

  • 36'

    Cantwell slides in on Guendouzi on the halfway line and Arsenal are awarded a free-kick. No yellow card for the Norwich man, although many Arsenal players are complaining about the leniency shown by the ref.

  • 33'

    Norwich break through Hernandez! He has teammates on either side, but his attempted through ball is intercepted by Luiz and Arsenal work it up from the back.

  • 31'

    Guendouzi crosses into the area but Sam Byram heads behind for a corner. Ozil crosses and it's headed clear by Godfrey at the near post.

  • 29'

    GOAL! Aubameyang scores this time! The striker keeps his nerve and scores by going into the same corner, sending Krul the wrong way! Norwich City 1-1 Arsenal!

  • 28'

    VAR awards a retake! Norwich players were deemed to have encroached into the area before the spot-kick was taken, so it's a retake! Aubameyang steps up for a second time...

  • 26'

    KRUL SAVES! Unbelievable! But was Krul off his line? Did players encroach into the box? VAR is taking a look!

  • 24'

    ARSENAL PENALTY! Ozil plays a free-kick into the box which hits the outstretched hand of Zimmermann! Aubameyang steps up to take it...

  • 21'

    GOAL! PUKKI! And Norwich get a surprise lead against the run of play! The ball is fed to Pukki outside the Arsenal area in a counter-attack. He controls the ball well and fires towards goal with the shot deflecting off Chambers and in!

  • 19'

    Chance! Ozil whips the corner into the area which Chambers heads on towards the far post forcing Krul to get a stretching hand onto it! The ball immediately gets cleared out for another corner by the first defender who could clear it.

  • 18'

    Kolasinac does well! The fullback jinks inside and out between two defenders as he drives into the box. He drives a low cross into the area but it's blocked out for a corner!

  • 17'

    Leno saves! Hernandez lays the ball back to McLean outside the area who fires a first-time effort on target! He strikes it well but the shot is too central and Leno is able to hold.

  • 14'

    Granit Xhaka attempts to play a long ball over the top for Aubameyang to chase, but it's far too central and overhit which results in the ball running all the way out of play, not giving Aubameyang much chance to run onto it.

  • 10'

    OFF THE LINE! Ozil swings a corner into the area which meets the head of Mustafi as Krul rushes off his line. The ball is heading into the back of the net but Hernandez is positioned well on the goal line to head clear! Heroic defending!

  • 8'

    Arsenal putting on the pressure! Aubameyang crosses from the right, but no one connects. It goes out to Kolasinac who drives a low cross into the 6-yard box, but it's cleared away as Krul tried to gather!

  • 6'

    Amadou shoots! It's laid back to the Norwich man outside the area and he hits a one-touch effort towards goal, but it's hit fairly poorly and bounces well wide of the target. Right idea, poor execution.

  • 5'

    Lacazette close! Willock's shot from inside the area is blocked and falls to Lacazette who shoots from close range towards the near post, but he doesn't connect well and Krul scrambles to tip around the post!

  • 2'

    Bright start from Arsenal from the start which is good to see. They've retained possession since kick-off and Willock even works a good cross into the area from the right, but he can't pick out a teammate.

  • 1'
