  • It looks too little, too late for the visitors as the elusive league win of 2012/13 will still elude them, although Wenger won't be complaining as his side will get back to winning ways.

  • The Gunners taking a page out of QPR's book as they look to hit their opposition on the counter, but Walcott's searching ball for Cazorla doesn't come together.

  • Could there be some late drama with the Hoops throwing caution to the wind and attacking the Gunners' goal with verve and determination.

  • Hardly called into action for most of the game, Mannone does extremely well to deny Mackie's close-range shot with his legs.

  • Arshavin's shot at the other end is wide to the left of the near post after good long ball upfield.

  • Lovely ball over the top by Taarabt into the path of Granero whose shot on goal drifts wide on goal.

  • Cazorla tries to coax the ball around Cesar from inside the box but the former Inter Milan gloveman is almost single-handedly keeping his side in the game with another good stop.

  • The Hoops now seem to not have the legs to hit-back on the counter as they did for much of the match.

  • Another fine save from Cesar, this time low to his right, to deny Ramsey from distance.

  • Walcott looks to play the ball in from the right, but the England forward's effort is blocked by a dogged QPR defence.

  • A weight off their shoulders, the Gunners seem more at ease on the ball but continue to push forward in search of the finishing goal.

  • Finally, Wenger's men get the breakthrough, Arteta heading the ball over the line after a goalmouth scramble that saw Giroud and Ramsey draw reflex saves from Cesar.

  • Hoops on the back foot and with ten men it will only get harder to keep the Gunners at bay.

  • Cesar with a brilliant reflex save at the near post after Giroud tries to bet the 'keeper from close-range.

  • Andrey Arshavin comes on for substitute Gervinho who has to be stretchered off the field following a tough tackle.

  • Gunners fail to capitalise on the free-kick out from the right.

  • Wright-Phillips comes off for Jamie Mackie, but the change is overshadowed by Stephane Mbia's dismissal for lashing out on Vermaelen.

  • The Gunners working the ball in and around the box, but they'll be ruing Cazorla's miss moments earlier.

  • Cazorla with the chance - and miss - of the day as he skies his shot way over the bar from close-range following a fine cross form the right by Walcott.

  • Gervinho with a dash down the left but Diakite cloes him down near the corner-post.
