  • Arsenal easily withstand the late flurry of goalmouth surges from Brighton and can satisfactorily look on towards the next round of the competition.

  • LuaLua tries hard to get around the outside and get a good ball in towards the far post, but his effort sails out of touch.

  • The Gunners not pushing up as much as one would expect at this stage of the match, Giroud a lone man up front.

  • Brighton fighting hard and have four extra minutes to do it, but the Arsenal keep their nerve in the final third.

  • Mackail-Smith cries foul inside the Gunners' box in the hope of a penalty after the replacement forward fails to get on the end of a long ball in the area.

  • Brighton withstand a nail-biting barrage on their goalmouth by a Arsenal outfit looking all the better as the match winds down.

  • Brighton being asked again to rally from a goal behind, but time running out, it might be too much to expect of Gus Poyet's men.

  • GOAL! Walcott fires home with a little deflection from out in front, the England forward in the right place to pounce on the loose ball after a super corner from Podolski.

  • Giroud, again, on goal and this time forces a corner-kick for the visitors out on the right.

  • LuaLua with an excellent ball from the left into the danger zone, but Mackail-Smith just can't raise high enough to get his head on the end of it.

  • Giroud can't keep his shot down at the near pos after Podolski does well to feed the two-goal frontman.

  • Jenkinson with a strong run down the right, but his cross for Podolski out on the far left is too strong.

  • Arsenal controlling the play with their dominance on the ball, but just can't translate it into another goal.
