88': Sub for Norwich - Bassong is replaced by winger Jarvis.
...
86': The freekick is hit into the wall and Arsenal break on the counter, but a pass to Giroud from Welbeck sees the Frenchman leave the ball as he believes he is offside.
...
85': Gabriel leaps for a header and hits Naismith in his attempt. Norwich have a dangerous freekick on the edge of the area.
...
83': Sub for Arsenal - Sanchez is replaced by Coquelin. Wenger is most likely shutting up shop.
...

...
...
...
77': Sub for Norwich - Brady comes off for Naismith.
...
75': Arsenal are again playing intricately around the edge of the area but not creating any more chances. Norwich failing to get back into the game here.

73': Ramsay weaves in and out on the edge of the area and his deflected shot falls to Ozil on the edge of area who drills a brilliant shot towards goal, but it's touched over the bar by the keeper.
...
70': Ozil makes a ridiculous pass to Sanchez on the counter attack which leaves the Chilean open just outside the box, however instead of passing he hits a hard shot straight at the keeper. Wasteful.
...
69': Gabriel blocks a vital cross from Redmond to Mbokani which surely woudl have gone it had it not been for the defenders efforts.

65': Sanchez tried to bend a hard shot into the top right corner from just outside the box but it fails to curl the way he wants and goes well wide.
...
63': Arsenal appear much more lively now that the goal as been scored, as Norwich fail to retain the ball or create any chances.
...
61': Arsenal were somewhat frustrating to watch up until the goal was scored, continuously passing the ball around without breaking through. Luckily for them, they were able to score without changing tactics.
...
60': Norwich will feel hard done by as they created several chances in the first half, but the dominance in possession by Arsenal means it was unsurprising that they eventually scored. Arsenal fans will be happy with Welbeck's instant impact.

...
53': Arsenal are back in possession and passing the ball around the outside of the area, but unable to find a way through again.
...
49': Sub - An injured Mertesacker hobbles off the pitch to be replaced by Gabriel. It appears the German overextended while attempting a tackle.
...
48': Norwich looking dangerous as Redmond sends a ball into the box which reaches Jerome who just misses the ball which goes past everyone.
...
46': Arsenal have so far failed to show any desperation to win while Norwich look keen to get a result. Ramsay sends a ball into Giroud on the left side of the box but the frenchman loses the ball and falls over himself.
