6′ GOAL! Sanchez with the cross, and that is a superb finish with the head from Koscielny. A 1-0 lead for the home side.
10′ INJURY TO DEBUCHY Arnautovic appeared to push Debuchy into the boards. This is very worrying. His day is well and truly finished. A shoulder injury. The Stoke man lucky to stay on.
13′ CHANCE! Oxlade-Chamberlain thumps a shot a few yards wide of goal from 18 yards. A solid shot by the Arsenal man, but just off target.
20′ SAVE! Begovic with another superb stop to turn away the shot by Giroud after he was set up by Alexis. The pressure continues.
27′ CHANCE! These are brighter moments for Stoke, who have a free-kick just outside of the Arsenal area. Bojan Krkic with a short free-kick, but Whelan hammers it miles over from 18 yards. Had time to hit that. Half-chance for the visitors.
33′ GOAL! Rosicky with a lovely pass into the path of Sanchez, and he slams the shot into the net from 10 yards. Fantastic finish.
49′ GOAL! Sanchez manages to curl the free-kick through the wall. Begovic can’t keep the ball out as it comes back off him via the post before trundling into the net.
67′ CHANCE! Another sweeping move from Arsenal as Cazorla accepts the return pass from Oxlade-Chamberlain before chipping the ball over the bar.
80′ WALCOTT CHANCE! Another lovely sweeping move from Arsenal as Sanchez picks out the run of Walcott, but he drags the ball wide. Should have worked Begovic there.
88′ OSPINA SAVE Finally a save from Ospina as he dives low to his left to stop the effort from Ireland finding the back of the net.
