75: There's a pause in play as Yedlin recievces treatment. He looks to have landed badly after attempting to foul Ramsey. He hobbles off from the field but will continue.
74: BLOCK! Ramsey breaks forward for Arsenal and picks out Mkhitaryan with a long diagonal pass. Mkhitaryan gets a shot away but Dummett makes an excellent block.
73: Kenedy's corner is dreadful as Lacazette clears at the near post.

GOAL! NEWCASTLE 0-2 ARSENAL (Ozil, 58)
He's been pretty poor so far this afternoon but Ozil's finally made his mark. Monreal flicks the ball around the corner to release Xhaka, who plays the ball into the penalty area for Lacazette. Thre Frenchman's shot is blocked but the ball reebounds to Ozil, who strokes it home. Dubravka, who should do better, gets a hand to the ball but cannot keep it out!

52: Arsenal have numbers in this attack as Ozil brings the ball forward. He has Lacazette and Ramsey in support over on the left but the move breaks down though as Ozil's pass is a poor one. What a waste from the German.
GOAL! NEWCASTLE 0-1 ARSENAL (Xhaka, 49)

TORREIRA WARMING UP
Torreira is going through quite a vigorous warm-up at half-time. Will Unai Emery bring him on for the second-half?
HT: There's no stoppage time as Lee Probert blows his whistle for half-time. It brings an end to what was in truth a poor half of football. Newcastle started the brighter of the two sides with Arsenal growing into the game but there were no real clear sightings of goal for either side. Let's hope for better after the break.
43: That just about sums up Arsenal's half. Ozil plays a five yard pass to Lacazette but the Frenchman is flat-footed and the ball rolls harmlessly out of play.
41: WHAT A TACKLE! And it needed to be from Sokratis. Newcastle break through Perez and he has Ritchie to his right in acres of space. Sokratis dives in on halfway in an attempt to win the ball and he does, making a crucial tackle.
39: Arsenal work the ball to Ramsey on the left and he stands an inviting cross up at the far post. Bellerin charges in to attack the ball but Dummett gets a crucial touch to take it away from goal.
38: FREE-KICK! Xhaka whips the ball into the box but Diame is there to head clear for Newcastle.
37: Free-kick to Arsenal midway into the Newcastle half after Lacazette is caught by Diame...
34: CHANCE! Brilliant build-up play from Arsenal as Monreal combines with Lacazette. The Frenchman then flicks the ball into the path of Ramsey, who has time and space to pick out a cross. Unfortunately for Arsenal, the Welshman gets it all wrong, slicing his cross behind for a goal kick.
32: CORNER! Ritchie takes it but Fernandez is pipped to the ball by Sokratis.
31: Yedlin delivers a cross from the right flank. It's a great cross but Bellerin is there to head behind for another Newcastle corner.
30: Two chances for Aubameyang to get a cross into the box but on both occassions he hits the first man. That's poor from the forward, who had Lacazette and Ramsey in good positions in the box.
29: Ritchie's cross takes a deflection off Monreal on its way into the penalty area but Mustafi is well positioned to deal with the danger.
27: Perez takes on Mustafi right on the edge of the penalty area. It's a promising position for the hosts but the German defender does well to get a boot to the ball.
25: SIDE NETTING! Lacazette works the ball onto his left foot but he cannot wrap his boot around the ball enough to hit the target.
23: Aubameyang recieves the ball in an advanced position. He looks to use his pace to get in on goal but Fernandez slides in to make a brilliant tackle.
21: From the resultant corner Murphy sees his diving header palmed away by Cech. The ball is loose on the edge of the penalty area but Monreal is quick to react, clearing the ball down field.
20: CHANCE! Mustafi slips as he looks to head the ball clear. Murphy latches onto the loose ball and bursts into the area, but luckily for Mustafi, Sokratis is alert to the danger. The Greek defender covers the ground quickly before muscling Murphy off the ball.
