FT: Arsenal 2-0 Napoli
90+2' Heavy touch from Ozil allows Napoli to take control of the ball, but they simply spread it around their own defensive third.
There will be three minutes of time added.
88' Ramsey comes off to a standing ovation. Monreal replaces him.
87' Giroud looks to spring Ozil but Reins is out to deal with the pass. Giroud's holdup play has been exceptional tonight.
84' Napoli have taken 13 shots tonight and have hit the target only once.
83' Fernandez has replaced Albiol for Napoli.
The Napoli supporters - about 2,500 of them at the Emirates - have been singing and jumping all evening.
79' Pace has drawn almost to a standstill. Plenty of stops and starts, and that'll suit Arsenal just fine as they look to wind this down.
77' Zapata has replaced Callejon for Napoli.
76' Reina! The Napoli 'keeper with a tremendous save to deny Koscielny!
75' Insigne showing the odd burst as we enter the final quarter of an hour at the Emirates.
74' Koscielny puts the ball out for a corner. Mertens delivers but it's easily dealt with by Gibbs. Poor corner.
73' Hmmm...now Ramsey concedes possession to Insigne. Arsenal playing within themselves. One goal against would really change things, though.
72' Behrami has touched the ball 39 times and completed 91% of his passes. Not too shabby given Napoli's woeful opening period.
68' Albiol heads away Ozil's cross intended for Giroud, and Inler finds Insigne as Napoli break. Inler gets the ball back, has a go on his own, and again sends the ball sailing well over the bar.
67' Behrami and Inler asserting themselves much more effectively now. But Napoli remain cautious in possession. They pass around waiting for openings, and on this occasion Zuniga floats one over the target.
65' Much tighter in midfield from Napoli since the restart. Arsenal have just taken their foot off the gas a touch.
63' Wilshere has replaced Rosicky for Arsenal.
61' Meertens has replaced Pandev for Napoli.
