  • A week that started badly for Arsenal has ended well with a solid display in Fenerbahce followed up by today's comfortable 3-1 success at Fulham. Arsenal always had the greater edge in the final third of the field and although the home side refused to give up, the result was never really in doubt once the Gunners had taken the lead.

  • Riether delivers a dangerous cross that is taken well by Szczesny ahead of Berbatov.

    90+3
  • We will have a minimum of four minutes added time.

    90
  • Cazorla breaks and feeds alcott whose first-time shot is blocked by keeper Stockdale.

    89
  • The Gunners have a throw deep in Fulham territory and will be happy to keep the ball down there in-front of their own fans.

    88
  • Jenkinson tries to get down the right, but Riise gets in a good block.

    87
  • Karagounis takes the resulting free kick himself and there is some alarm in a crowded Arsenal box before the flag goes up for offside.

    86
  • Mertesacker has to head clear as Karagounis gets in a dangerous cross, before the Greek international is felled by Monreal.

    85
  • Wilshere certainly looks to have lifted the tempo of the entire game since his arrival.

    84
  • Hughes again comes to Fulham's rescue with a last-ditch block to stop Walcott's cross and the corner is cleared.

    83
  • It's Arsenal doing all the pressing in the closing stages, much to the frustration of the home fans.

    82
  • Another good piece of defending by Hughes sees him head clear a great cross by Jenkinson.

    81
  • Arsenal's only summer signing so far Yaya Sanogo comes on for Podolski.

    80
  • Wilshere booked for a foul on Karagounis

    79
  • Stockdale punches clear a Walcott free-kick. The ball drops to Wilshere 16 yards out and his fierce shot is blocked by Hughes before the keeper saves from Mertesacker.

    78
  • Kasami booked for a foul on Mertesacker.

    77
  • GOAL! Berbatov spins in the box and although his shot is parried, Bent is on hand to turn it in from close range.

    76
  • Karagounis looks to get in a shot from the edge of the box but slips and Arsenal clear.

    75
  • Credit to Fulham who are still coming forward but that third goal has scuppered their chances which were slim at 2-0.

    74
  • Fulham's final change sees Sidwell replaced by Giorgos Karagounis.
