  • As ever, thanks for all your contributions today. It's a shame the game didn't produce quite as much entertainment as hoped, but it was a fairly typical end of season encounter.

  • Full-time at the Emirates and Arsenal claim a 1-0 victory over West Brom, whose Premier League safety could nevertheless be guaranteed at Stamford Bridge later on today. Arsenal head to Norwich on the last day before their FA Cup final against Hull on May 17.

  • Lugano makes a good run forward but his flicked header goes harmlessly behind for a goal kick.

  • Dorrans was also shown a yellow card following that incident.

  • Anichebe fashions a chance in the first of three added minutes but he can't quite get a shot on target. Meanwhile, Giroud is booked for squaring up to Dorrans off the ball.

  • Ozil loses out on the edge of the West Brom area and the Baggies mount a counter but Berahino stumbles over under no pressure, much to the hilarity of the home faithful.

  • Chance for Kallstrom but he fails to fully connect with the header after making a good break into the box to try and latch onto a Sagna cross.

  • Podolski bursts down the left wing. after being found by Vermaelen, gets to the byline but has his attempted cross blocked behind for a corner.

  • West Brom come forward again but Anichebe tries a clever flick when a simple pass would have done.

  • Olsson wins the header but can't direct it and West Brom fail to create an opening after it comes back into the area.

  • Mulumbu is replaced by Vydra.

  • A promising attack from West Brom sees them send plenty of players forward and win a corner on the right.

  • Ozil shoots but it's not struck with enough power and Foster makes a comfortable save.

  • Anichebe provides Foster with a good target to aim for and he sets up an attack with a good nod-down but Arsenal win it back and Ozil is fouled on the edge of the West Brom penalty box.

  • West Brom also make a change, with Anichebe coming on in place of Morgan Amalfitano.

  • Monreal has been replaced by Thomas Vermaelen.

  • Good passing from Arsenal as they frustrate West Brom but Szczesny then sends the ball out of play on the Arsenal right.

  • Olsson does well to clear this time before Mertesacker coolly deals with Berahino and plays back to Szczesny.

  • Podolski has a volley blocked at the back post after a cross from the right by Rosicky.

  • A golden opportunity is missed by Podolski, who hits the post from eight yards out after Olsson's mis-hit clearance falls at his feet. Somehow it balloons back into the arms of Foster.
