  • So Arsenal let a two-goal slip as Walcott and Giroud efforts are cancelled out by Huntelaar and Farfan. There will be a regret for Arsenal but they probably would have taken a point before kick-off. Olympiakos beat Montpellier which means all is still to play for in the group. Arsenal's trip to Olympiakos on the final group game could yet be a knock-out meeting. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.

  • FULL-TIME: SCHALKE 2 ARSENAL 2

    90 + 4
  • What a chance for Walcott. He gets behind the Arsenal defence and manages to get a shot away but it hits the legs of Unnerstall.

    90 + 4
  • Schalke make their final change. Barnetta is on in place of Holtby.

    90 + 4
  • The ball is not sticking for up top for Arsenal but Schalke are not exactly causing too many scares. Fuchs' cross goes behind.

    90 + 3
  • Coquelin has the chance to get his head up close to the Schalke box and he looks for a pass to Giroud. The striker cannot make anything of it and takes a bit of a whack in the back from a defender.

    90 + 2
  • ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of four minutes added time before the final whistle.

    90 + 1
  • Arsenal make a double change. Santos and Coquelin come on in place of Cazorla and Podolski.

    90
  • More good work from Mannone as he vitally punches clear a cross just as Huntelaar's eyes were lighting up.

    89
  • Arsenal go on a rare move forward and Walcott wants a free-kick on the edge of the box. It looked like he could have had a case but play is waved on and Schalke win a throw-in deep in Arsenal territory.

    88
  • Schalke are seeing all of the ball in the final minutes. Arsenal cannot get a kick at the moment. But they are keeping Schalke in deep areas.

    87
  • The Schlake fans let Vermaelen know what they think as he hobbles off the pitch having received treatment.

    86
  • Possibly running down the clock but Vermaelen goes down after a slide tackle and is receiving treatment.

    85
  • Huntelaar cannot quiet get over the top of a cross as he heads over the crossbar. He was offside anyway bit that is a warning as the final whistle approaches.

    84
  • This is very unlike Wenger this season not to have made any substitutions. Will tired legs pay the price in the closing minutes?

    83
  • Podolski tries to latch onto a bouncing ball inside the penalty area but the highly-rated Papadopoulos gets his body in the way to prevent the Germany player from meeting the ball.

    82
  • Mannone has probably been Arsenal's man of the match this evening. He has made several very important saves.

    81
  • Jones forces another good save from Mannone after cutting in from the right with a low show to the near post.

    80
  • The game has become a little scrappy. Both sides now look as if they are focusing on not losing the game rather than going gung-ho for the winner.

    79
  • Wilshere makes a tired challenge on Jones close to the touchline. The Arsenal youngster looks out on his feet at the moment.
