Minute   Description
90' +4 Rondon is bundled over on the right wing, resulting in a free-kick for West Brom in a promising position. It's sent in low by Phillips and manages to find Rondon, but the Venezuelan is in an offside position and the linesman's flag is quickly raised.
90' +3 A. Maitland-Niles enters the game and replaces A. Ramsey.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles has come on to replace Ramsey in Arsenal's third and final change of the evening.
90' +2 Ramsey gets himself into a good position deep down the left wing and manages to swing a cross into the box, but there's nobody there to meet it and West Brom can deal with the danger without too many problems.
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be three minutes of added time.
89' West Brom push forward on a rare attacking move and are able to win themselves a free-kick midway inside the Arsenal half of the pitch. It's fired forward by Gibbs and manages to find Phillips, who tries to beat three players but is quickly dispossessed.
Ramsey goes close to making it 3-0! After winning the ball back, Arsenal burst forward on a blisteringly quick counter-attack. Ozil and Giroud link up really nicely before the latter sets up Ramsey, but the Welshman can't find the back of the net with his low shot, which is well saved by the legs of Foster.
88' More good play by Arsenal almost results in Ozil shooting from just inside the penalty area, but Giroud's return ball to the German rolls just past the attacking midfielder and behind for a goal-kick.
87' Chance for Xhaka! A lofted pass forward finds Giroud, who brings the ball down nicely inside the penalty area. He quickly knocks the ball back to Xhaka, who manages to get a shot away but sends his thumping effort high over the top of the crossbar.
86' Elneny decides not to shoot from the edge of the West Brom penalty area and instead sets up Bellerin to cross, but Dawson is there in the heart of the box to head the ball away from danger.
84' Another dangerous Arsenal corner causes problems for the West Brom defence as it curls towards the near post, but Gibbs is just about able to beat Mustafi to the ball at the vital moment.
83' O. Giroud enters the game and replaces A. Lacazette.
M. Özil enters the game and replaces A. Sánchez.
Arsenal have decided to make a double substitution. The first player to come on is Olivier Giroud, who replaces Lacazette.
And the second is Mesut Ozil, with Sanchez making way.
