  • One of the most compelling, remarkable and absorbing games of football ends in the most dramatic of ways. Arsenal were 4-0 down before coming back to lead 5-4, and goals from the heroic Walcott and Chamakh seals Arsenal's incredible passage into the quarter-finals. Thanks for your company at the Madejski Stadium and I'll see you all soon.

  • FULL TIME. Reading 5 Arsenal 7.

    120+3
  • An incredible error from Gunter allows Chamakh in, with space aplenty, before wrapping up this remarkable encounter with a delicate chip over the top of Federici!

    120+3
  • GOAL FOR ARSENAL - CHAMAKH!

    120+3
  • Arshavin does tremendously as he storms forward and unleashes a rocket at goal, which is cleared off the line, before Walcott stabs it home to surely, surely claim a winner!

    120+1
  • GOAL FOR ARSENAL - WALCOTT!

    120+1
  • Giroud, with a great chance to win it, swerves a shot towards the inside of the far post, and with Federici static, it lands narrowly wide.

    120
  • I'm completely exhausted, let alone how the players and fans must feel. Jenkinson, meanwhile, plays a careless ball across the park and Leigertwood picks it up for Reading.

    119
  • Eisfeld is booked for a lunge on Robson-Kanu as Reading looked to break.

    117
  • The drama continues as Gunter's drive across goal is flicked into the net by Pogrebnyak and we're set for penalties in one of the greatest ever Capital One Cup games!

    115
  • GOAL FOR READING - POGREBNYAK!

    115
  • Yellow card for Martinez for time wasting.

    114
  • Robson-Kanu is played in, with Gunter finding Pogrebynak right in his way as he attempted a volley, which was from a wonderful position as well.

    114
  • Much better work from Arshavin who whips a driven ball into the box to force Gunter into a far from easy clearance.

    113
  • Morrison is booked for a cynical tackle on the advancing Chamakh.

    111
  • McAnuff makes a tremendous run down the right but Coquelin slides in, and as Arsenal look to counter, another poor decision from Arshavin sees the move break down.

    110
  • Martinez redeems himself with a wonderful save, denying Morrison at the near post, where the offside flag went up regardless in the end.

    109
  • Chamakh hussles superbly to dispossess Leigertwood, but Djourou climbs all over Church moments later to concede a free-kick.

    108
  • An incredible ball from Leigertwood sees Koscielny struggle against Church before eventually conceding a corner. The ball comes in but Gorkss can only head over the bar.

    107
  • Reading kick off the second period of ET.
