  • The referee blows his whistle for full-time and Arsenal have hung on after a second-half onslaught from the French champions. A winning start for the Gunners, 2-1. Thanks for joining us.

    90
  • Cabella goes down easily in the box under a challenge from Diaby and the referee waves away the penalty appeals.

    90
  • Arsenal double substitution: Cazorla off Coquelin on. Podolski off, Walcott on.

    90
  • Mannone climbs high to claim a deflected cross.

    87
  • Free-kick to Montpellier deep in their own half. Arsenal won't mind that.

    86
  • Ramsey, Gibbs, Podolski, Cazorla, Ramsey, Vermaelen, Ramsey, Gervinho, offside. Arsenal try to keep the ball and wind down the clock.

    85
  • Stambouli battles well for the ball as Montpellier press for the equaliser.

    84
  • Belhanda goes into the book for a foul on Arteta.

    83
  • Jenkinson hoof, high into the stands as Arsenal defend un-Arsenal-like late on.

    82
  • It was a good save by Mannone but it really should be 2-2.

    81
  • Montpellier carve out a glorious chance for Belhanda who shows composure in a busy box but places it into the arms of Mannone. Great, great chance for the equaliser.

    80
  • Montpellier double change: Camara is replaced by Benjamin Stambouli and Emanuel Herrera is on for Estrada.

    78
  • Bocaly battles his way to a throw-in as Montpellier continue to throw everything at this game.

    77
  • Giroud is replaced by Aaron Ramsey.

    76
  • Bocaly wins a corner for Montpellier off Gervinho, who is doing a lot of defending at the moment.

    73
  • Ait-Fana slips at a vital stage, just as he was getting his shot away.

    71
  • The hesitation in the Arsenal defence won't have pleased Steve Bould there but Ait-Fana is adjudged to have fouled Mertesacker.

    70
  • Bedimo hooks a volley goalwards but Mannone has no problems with that.

    69
  • Mounier is replaced by Karim Ait-Fana as Montpellier make a change.

    68
  • Great play from Montpellier as Bocaly and Saihi combine in the Arsenal box. The former falls over when it gets tight but the referee is rightly not interested.
