Arsenal vs PSV Eindhoven

FULL TIME - Arsenal 4-0 PSV Eindhoven

88' - Smith Rowe, Nelson and Vieira have all done well since their introductions. Even with quite a few injuries, Arsenal have significant squad depth.

82' -  Another chance for Arsenal on the break but Nelson is crowded out as his shot is blocked.

The youngster is playing off the left after replacing Trossard.

81' - Havertz is now playing up front. A goal for him would cap Arsenal's night.

74'- The noise inside the Emirates has just gone up a notch again. What a Champions League return this is for Arsenal.

70' - GOAL! Arsenal 4-0 PSV Eindhoven (Odegaard, 70')


60' - In the first half, Odegaard completed more passes (31) and attempted more passes into the final third (16) than any other player. No one had more than his 39 touches.

49' - The hosts had seven shots on target in the first half - they have only had more in the first half of a Champions League game once before (eight vs. Standard Liege in 2009).

Arsenal 3-0 PSV Eindhoven


46' - And we're back underway at the Emirates as the rain continues to fall.

HALF TIME - Arsenal 3-0 PSV Eindhoven

45' - There will be 2' of added time.

38' - GOAL! Arsenal 3-0 PSV Eindhoven (Jesus, 38')


Gabriel sends a lovely ball over the top down for Trossard, who makes his way up the left channel. 

He crosses deep into the box and Jesus controls instantly before blasting the ball into the top left corner!

Jesus has deserved that goal - he could have had three already!

36' - Back-to-back corners for the visitors, whose fans are making all the noise at the Emirates now, sees Bella-Kotchap glance a header wide.

32' - PSV have shown some flashes of attacking quality, but the crucial final pass or shot has just eluded them so far.


PSV have looked useful going forward and after a nice move, Bakayoko finds space on the edge of the box to have a go with his left foot, but drags the effort wide.

20' - GOAL! Arsenal 2-0 PSV Eindhoven (Trossard, 20')


Arsenal strike on the counter-attack!

Jesus latches on to a loose ball in the middle of the pitch and charges into the PSV half. 

He passes to Saka on the right, who makes more ground towards the box, before squaring to Trossard. 

The winger takes on a first-time shot and buries it into the bottom right corner.

18' - Raya has had a solid start. This time he is alert to come out and collect a Lang cross from the left before any visiting attacker can get on the end of it.

16' - PSV have responded pretty well to going behind, showing the confidence you would expect from a side unbeaten in 26 matches in all competitions.

14' - Arsenal have now scored in their last 10 Champions League games.

11' - White blasts a delightful low cross into the PSV box, but Jesus mistimes his shot and the ball evades his left foot altogether.

10' - Bakayoko tries his luck from range, but he does not get the cleanest contact on the ball and his bouncing effort is easily gathered by Raya.

8' - GOAL! Arsenal 1-0 PSV Eindhoven (Saka, 8')


8' - Appeals for an Arsenal penalty as Saka goes down in the box. Nothing given which is the right decision.

3' - Odegaard very nearly slips Saka in on goal inside the box but PSV recover well to knock the ball off him for a goal kick. 

Arteta is up by the touchline as usual.

Arsenal 0-0 PSV Eindhoven


1' - And we're underway at the Emirates!
