71 min Double substitution for Liverpool. Luis Suarez comes on for Andy Carroll and Raul Meireles comes on Dirk kuyt.
70 min Red card for Frimpong! A second yellow for Frimpong after a late tackle on Lucas.
68 min Kelly is dispossessed by Arshavin in the area. The Russian passes to Van Persie, whose quick shot is turned around the post by Reina. Van Persie should have scored.

63 min Walcott breaks forward down the right wing and hits a good cross along the ground, which is cleared by Carragher.
62 min Downing’s cross is cleared for a corner by Vermaelen. The corner is cleared, however.
60 min The match has hit a bit of a lull.

52 min An Arshavin through ball goes straight to Reina.
49 min Nasri plays a long speculative ball which finds nobody.
46 min Second half is underway and Charlie Adam shoots straight away, but his shot is saved.

Half-Time An interesting first half ends with a nil all scoreline. Liverpool created more in the opening half an hour and the Reds almost took the lead through Andy Carroll. Arsenal took some time to settle in the game, while their injury woes have continued with the withdrawal of Koscielny. In the last ten minutes, however, Arsenal have started to play some good football. Liverpool probably remain slight favourites due to Arsenal’s defensive inexperience and Liverpool’s stronger bench.

45+3 min Half-time at the Emirates.
45+2 min Nasri turns swiftly to go past Lucas, but his shot goes well over.
45 min Van Persie’s free kick hits the wall and goes for a corner, which is cleared.
44 min Yellow card for Lucas. The Brazilian pulls back Frimpong.
44 min Liverpool have enjoyed the better first half, but Arsenal have played some quality football in the last ten minutes.
43 min Some nice play from Arsenal almost pays off, but Ramsey’s return pass to Ashavin is slightly too hard.
42 minNasri’s cross almost find Miquel, but the ball is headed clear.
41 min Carroll’s long-range shot is blocked and Szczesny stops it going for a corner.
39 min Downing hits a powerful shot wide from outside the box.
35 min Brilliant from Nasri. The Frenchman runs half the length of the pitch and beats Agger before shooting just wide. Nasri has been Arsenal’s best performer so far and may be trying to prove a point to the Arsenal supporters who booed him against Newcastle last week before he moves to Manchester City.
31 min Downing’s cross is knocked wide by Szczesny when he probably could have let it go. The corner is cleared, however.
30 min Frimpong almost scores for 30 yards. Great effort but Pepe Reina makes a brilliant diving save.
29 min Charlie Adam shoots from his own half and it almost dips under Szczesny’s crossbar.

26 min A reckless clearance from Frimpong goes behind him and Kuyt almost capitalises.
23 min Kuyt crosses and Henderson heads straight at Szczesny from a difficult opportunity.
22 min Yellow card for Jenkinson. Enrique is fouled after a great run past Walcott, Frimpong and Jenkinson. Poor free kick from Charlie Adam as his attempt to pass it back to Downing is easily cleared.
20 min Kuyt turns and shoots but his shot is wayward.
20 min Szczesny makes a great save from a quality Andy Carroll header.
19 min Downing cuts inside and hits a shot but it fails to pass the first man.
17 min Samir Nasri’s long ball does not find anyone.
16 min Arsenal substitution. 18 year old Ignasi Miquel replaces Koscielny. Koscielny is unable to walk without assistance.
13 min Koscielny pulls up injured. Worrying times for Arsenal. The only defensive cover they have is Ignasi Miqeul.
11 min Downing is crowded out in the Arsenal area.
10 min Arsenal break well, but Walcott’s cross for Arshavin is stopped by Reina.

4 min A Downing cross along the ground finds Kuyt but the Dutchman’;s weak shot goes straight at Szczesny.
3 min Corner for Arsenal. Martin Kelly heads a Theo Walcott cross wide. Corner comes to nothing, however.
2 min Good early run by Agger is abruptly stopped by a strong tackle from Frimpong. Long-range free for Liverpool is hit far too long from Charlie Adam.
1 min The match is underway at the Emirates.
0 min It’s a very inexperienced bench for Arsenal which includes Alex Chamberlain, Ryo Miyaichi, Henri Lansbury and Ignasi Miquel.
0 min Team news is in and the big news is that Samir Nasri surprisingly starts for Arsenal despite his impending move to Manchester City, while 19 year old Carl Jenkinson and Emmanuel Frimpong also start for the Gunners.
