  • Arsenal 3 Norwich 1. Late show from the Gunners sees them take the points and move into third place in the Premier League table. Frustration for Norwich, who remain in trouble.

  • Cazorla and Podolski combine on the edge of the box, but Norwich get enough men back. Snodgrass is then tripped as he looks to counter. Final few seconds being played out.

  • Walcott leaves the ball down by the corner, making Bunn race out to go and get it. This game has gone for Norwich now. Not enough time left. Arsenal getting everyone back in position for the goal kick.

  • Snodgrass goes into the book. Frustration boiling over for Norwich now. He had a tug at a shirt. Needless, as Arsenal can now take their time with the free-kick.

  • Arsenal have turned this around in some style. Changes have made the difference, with an injection of pace and creativity seeing the Gunners home.

  • GOAL ARSENAL - PODOLSKI. Game over now. Walcott able to escape in behind Whittaker. He cuts across the edge of the box and tees up Podolski, who turns and fires low into the bottom corner.

  • Bunn forced into another smart stop. Game becoming stretched now, allowing Arsenal to find space. Giroud picks up the ball at the back post, but sees a drive from a tight angle touched over. Arsenal take the corner short.

  • Six minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • Snodgrass delivers from the set-piece. Header planted goalwards, but straight into the hands of Fabianski. Relief for the Gunners.

  • Late change for Norwich, with Tettey making way for Jackson.

  • Harsh on Norwich, with the tie having been turned on its head. Canaries now back in trouble. They almost find an equaliser, with Howson through. He is denied by a low stop from Fabianski. Corner to the Canaries.

  • GOAL ARSENAL - GIROUD. What a turn around. The hosts now lead. Oxlade-Chamberlain able to make his way to the by-line. He forces the ball square, where Bassong and Giroud bundle the ball over the line.

  • Hughton on the sidelines calling for calm from his side. It is vital that Norwich do not leave empty-handed now. Ball keeps coming back at them, with Holt flagged offside. Arsenal piling men forward.

  • Norwich have every right to feel hard done by, but there was a tug on Giroud and he went to ground. Tough call and one which should have been made by the referee, not his assistant. Anyway, we now have four minutes to find a winner.

  • GOAL ARSENAL - ARTETA. We are level...just. Bunn goes the right way, but Arteta's effort low to his left squirms past and into the back of the net.

  • Bunn has been cautioned for the level of his complaint.

  • Referee points to the spot. Norwich raging. Spot kick awarded by assistant, not Mike Jones. Corner caused plenty of problems and Giroud ended up going down after being tugged at by Kamara. Not sure how the assistant could see the incident, but he gave the award.

  • Walcott unable to get around Snodgrass. Arsenal on the edge of the Norwich box, but no way through. They go wide to Ramsey, and he slides in with Snodgrass to win a corner.

  • Oxlade-Chamberlain's first touch sees him fail to gather the ball in and concede a goal kick. Bunn once again decides to take the ball across his goal to the other. He is entitled to do that, as the seconds tick down.

  • Attacking change by Wenger as Oxlade-Chamberlain comes on in place of Sagna. Arsenal prepared to go with three at the back as they chase a leveller.
