  • Corner is taken short and that's your lot. Arsenal take the three points - and there's absolutely no doubt about the turning point in the game. How Spurs must wish Adebayor hadn't made that tackle. Thanks for joining me and stay tuned for a full match report and post-match reaction from both managers.

  • Pretty static stuff from the corner until Ramsey bursts back into the Arsenal box and Carroll concedes another corner.

  • Santos back on after treatment as Oxlade-Chamberlain powers down the right. Dawson turns his cross behind for a corner.

  • Well Santos might not...he's taken a sore one.

  • Sensed there were nerves in the home crowed even before that. Fair to say they'll enjoy the last three minutes now.

  • GOAL - WALCOTT. Poor pass forward from Vertonghen is pounced on by Oxlade-Chamberlain. He powers into the Spurs box and slides it to Walcott, who shoots through Dawson's legs and into the corner.

  • Cazorla gets the nod from Gary Neville for man of the match - hard to disagree. We'll have four minutes of added time.

  • Vertonghen brings down 'The Ox' and the free-kick gives Arsenal the chance to let the clock tick down with some more possession football.

  • Defoe and Dempsey link up but they're always facing away from goal and it's carried clear by Oxlade-Chamberlain.

  • Bale does well to nick the ball away from Ramsey and set Spurs on the attack. It's worked out to the right from where Lennon, Carroll and Gallas work a crossing chance but the latter named produces a poor ball.

  • Meandering towards the conclusion now...

  • Giroud departs, with Oxlade-Chamberlain replacing him.

  • Walcott slides the ball through to Santos but his first touch lets him down and Sandro nicks in and draws a foul.

  • Good block from Koscielny to prevent Spurs progressing.

  • Santos slides in Vermaelen down the inside left channel but he can't wrap his foot around it enough and the ball goes behind for a goal-kick.

  • Arsenal just looking to eat up a little time with some cool, controlled passing now.

  • Not for the first time this season, Podolski is subbed. As mentioned, Andre Santos is the man replacing him.

  • Ball in headed clear by Giroud and Arsenal spring forward quickly but Ramsey's ball in curls harmlessly towards the advancing Lloris.

  • Sandro scoops a cross in from the right and though it's not the best ball Bale manages to harass Sagna into hacking out for a throw deep in Arsenal territory. Carroll converts that into a corner.

  • Andre Santos is coming on...
