Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Arsenal get the victory they wanted, and also deserved, with Cesc Fàbregas putting in a true captain’s performance with two goals, Samir Nasri getting on the scoresheet in only his second game of the season and Abou Diaby adding the fourth. The only slight disappointment on the night for the home fans is that the Group H leaders are not mathematically through to the last 16 because of R. Standard de Liège’s win over Olympiacos FC. For AZ, whose Jeremain Lens scored a late consolation goal, all is not lost in the group.
