  • The final whistle blows at Selhurst Park and the final score is Crystal Palace 0 Arsenal 2.

  • Ozil drifts into the Palace area and feeds Giroud but his pass is wayward.

  • Giroud has a speculative left-foot effort from a long way out and it never looks like troubling the Palace goalkeeper, sailing high and wide.

  • Monreal tries to bundle his way through again but his control lets him down and Speroni collects.

  • Palace continue to come forward but Sagna deals with the ball in and sends Arsenal on another counter.

  • There will be a minimum of four additional minutes.

  • Ramsey comes forward again and tries to find Wilshere but Palace just get back in time to deal with the threat.

  • GOAL! (Giroud) Ramsey does really well for Arsenal, holding the ball up before chipping a lovely ball over for the on-rushing Olivier Giroud who fires his header past Speroni. Palace caught on the counter by 10-man Arsenal.

  • Ozil should probably have scored as Monreal finds the Germany international in space in the box but his spectacular volley is over the top.

  • Long ball from Arsenal goes through for a Palace goal kick and they look to build again.

  • Palace not exactly pouring forward with five minutes to play but they're seeing plenty of the ball and will be pumping it into the box whenever possible.

  • A Palace free kick can't find Delaney at the back post but they win the throw. Jedinak sends it forward to Chamakh but he can't quite chest it down to get a shot away.

  • Ozil skilfully comes in from the right and sends over a low cross but it's just behind the onrushing Arsenal attackers.

  • Monreal in on the act again but his pass doesn't find Giroud.

  • Monreal goes on a brilliant run, cutting in from the left and going solo into the box before firing a shot into the thigh of the Palace defender.

  • Gayle latches onto a Chamakh nod-down before Kebe sends in a cross for Chamakh from the right. Mertesacker just gets enough of his head to the cross to prevent the striker getting on the end of it.

  • Bolasie loses out to Ramsey, who looks for Giroud but the man up front is suddenly looking lonely.

  • The tackles are getting harder as the game goes on and Wilshere makes an impact with a solid challenge. Palace very much dominating possession now.

  • Barry Bannan is now replaced by Dwight Gayle in what is the home side's third and final substitute.

  • Another stunning save from Szczesny from a fine volley from Jedinak, which resulted from the corner. Two brilliant stops from the Arsenal keeper in two minutes.
