Match Commentary

94' FULL TIME Their first goal was controversial, but Arsenal were very impressive in the second half, with Fabregas and Nasri outstanding. Arsenal are now two points behind Man Utd and Man City, having played a game more than the former and one less than the latter.
94' More beguiling football from Arsenal in the Birmingham box results in a corner for the away side.
93' A scramble ensues in the Arsenal box when the corner is delivered but Birmingham cannot convert after the bar scrapes against the bar. That should just about be that.
