21:57 

Frankfurt, meanwhile, need a point against Vitoria.

21:56 

Oh gosh. Arsenal are still top of the group, and are good as through - they'd need to lose to Standard by five goals to ruin it, and even they can't manage that I don't think.

21:55

Arsenal 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt 2

90+3' 

There's going to be a lot of grief in a second. Arsenal are about to make it seven without a win!

90+3' 

Saka moseys forward and finds Aubameyang, who trips over the ball. His captaincy is going well.

90+2' 

Aaargh. My picture cuts, returning just as the commentator bemoans a miss by Pacienca.

90' 

There'll be three added minutes. Oh look! There's Mesut Ozil. Hi Mesut!

89' 
88' 

Nothing is especially happening.

87' 

I had literally forgotten about Pepe. I was suspicious of him though - he's had one good season playing the second-best team in not especially good league, wasn't getting picked for Cote d'Ivoire in the summer, and wasn't wanted by a better team than Arsenal. And here we are.

87' 

How much did Arsenal spend on Pepe again? He's still chilling on the bench.

86'

Guendouzi and Xhaka foul Paciencia, the ref blows up, and Xhaka bangs the ball down so is booked. At least he showed everyone how much he cares.

85'  

Saka finds space on the right but his ball to Guendouzi is short and Da Costa clears. There are now some boos in the ground - actual grown adults making them, too.

85' 

It's been a whole since Arsenal did anything.

83' 

This game is just expiring, and suddenly Kamada, who's on a hat-trick, finds space in the box, but Sokratis gets in his road.

83' 

How many players have improved under Emery? What is his plan?

82' 

This is an absolute shambles. Arsenal are slow, weak, and clueless. And where is Reiss Nelson?

81' 

Not winning the league with PSG might've offered them a clue.

80' 

I was a bit surprised he went to Arsenal - I thought he might've had other options, and is the very opposite of what we associate with them these days - driven, brave and such. But here we are.

79' 

Arsnela move the ball a bit, and it occcurs to me that we've seen almost nothing of Tierney going forward. That is strange.

78' 
78' 

Arsenal plod. I think there's a fair chance Emery doesn't have a scooby. They've created almost nothing since Frankfurt equalised.

76' 

Off goes Mustafi - it's been another wondrous night - and Torreira comes on. Lucky Arsenal don't need a goal and don't have Lacazette and Pepe on the bench, eh?

74'

Guendoudzi pulls back Gracinovic, then Mustafi chops down Paciencia and is booked; he'll miss the next match. I can't imagine how Arsenal will cope.

73' 

Saka's been quiet this half, but he gets on the ball and runs by Da Costa, who holds him back.

71' 

Arsenal are improving again, Willock and Saka combining to make space down the left before running out of it.

71' 

Meanwhile...

70' 

Here come Eintracht again! Kostic is off down the left! But Sokratis slows him up, he can't decide what to do, and his shot is easily blocked.

69' 

I forgot to note that Mustafi got injured trying to defend the second goal, and will be okf shortly.

69' 

Even better news for Frankfurt: Vittoria have equalised against Standard. Also: Arsenal are absolutely useless.

68' 

Solemn.

67' 

As I said, Arsenal should've finished this game before Frankfurt even realised there was one taking place. In a sense, you can't blame young players for missing chances - it happens - but the defending, by more experienced players, isn't good enough.

65' 

Unai Emery is terrible trouble. We see his face, then other worried faces in the crowd, then some showing Emery Out signs.

64'

GOAL! Arsenal 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt 2 (Kamada) Well! The corner is headed away to the edge, where Kamada picks it up. No one rushes him, so he takes a touch and drags an excellent finish inside the near post!

63'

Good from Frankfurt. They move it quickly from right to left, Sow finding Kohr who finds Kostic, and his low drive is only just tipped away by Martinez!

62' 

Kamada eases through centrefield and slides a good ball out to Kostic, whose cross is blocked behind. Frankfurt are into this now.

60'

Ozil replaces Martinelli. It's his big chance!

Also, Martinelli has been dangerous. why not leave him on?

59'

Guendouzi moves away from Abraham, who stretches every sinew to impart a foul. He's booked.

59' 

Sombre.

57' 

Arsenal should've finished this game time ago. The chances haven't all been gimmes, but you'd expect at least one or two more of them to be taken.

55'

LOVELY GOAL! Arsenal 1-1 Eintracht Frankfurt (Kamada) Kamada takes a throw from Da Costa deep inside the Arsenal half down the right, slows up Sokratis, dashes across him, and bends a luscious left-footer into the far bottom corner! Penny for em, Unai!

54' 

Frankfurt are showing signs of life.

53' 

Saka gets some space and looks to loft a ball over for Martinelli, but doesn't get hold of it and Abraham intercepts with his head.

52' 

We're back to pat-a-cake.

50' 

On the touchline, Adi Hutter., the Frankfurt coach, looks extremely stressed.

48'

The resultant corner goes short then back to Xhaka, who tricks his way past Hasebe along the by-line and snaps back for Chambers; he swings ineptly over the bar.

47'

Nice from Arsenal, Chambers sending Martinelli away down the right. He crosses low and Willock collects; then, as Ronnow comes out, he shows he's learnt from last time, looking to dink ... but it still hits the keeper in the body.

46' 

Frankfurt have brought on Kohr and Gacinovic for Fernandes and Silva.

46'

We go again. I never tire of typing that.

20:51 

Arsenal should be further ahead; Eintracht have been hideous.

20:51

Half-time: Arsenal 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt

45+5' 

Willock finds Aubameyang, who crosses to the edge, whereupon Xhaka slips in the act of shooting.

45+4' 

Kostic finds some space down the left and crosses low for Pacienca, but Tierney is paying attention and nips in front to clear.

45+3' 

Liege lead in Vittoria, which is bad for Frankfurt - the teams started tonight level on points. Xhaka returns.

45+1'

GOAL! Arsenal 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt Saka drives beautifully and switches to Martinelli, who sashays by Hinteregger and crosses for Aubameyang, who drives low; Ronnow sticks out a foot, but can only divert the ball against the bar, down, and into the roof.

45' 

There'll be five added minutes.

45' 

Xhaka hobbles off. I guess he can hang out in the dressing room and see how he feels in a few minutes.

43' 

Xhaka is down with what looks like a twisted ankle.That might be it for him.

41'

And there's one of them! Willock stretches down left side of the box, ducks back inside and thread a short ball in to Saka, who has a proper sight of goal. But Ronnow is down well, and Saka can't help but shoot into his body.

41' 

The standard of young players knocking about the Premier League is really quite something.

39' 

Arsenal are struggling for momentum in midfield. Willock has had less of the ball, and he was the most creative player in the early stages.

37' 

So Sokratis gets things going again with a shonky pass across the defence, that Martinez sorts but not without discomfort.

37' 

Arsenal have gone a little quiet these last few minutes.

36' 

I'd say the problem with him is that he's not as good as he thinks he is, and maybe others think he is. He's got talent, but also a long way to go.

35'

Kostic slows Martinelli down and chops back past him the other way; Martinelli knocks him over and is booked.

34' 

I wonder if Luiz has broken a rib. Internal pain is possible without it - I got clattered by a keeper once and couldn't move afterwards, but I'd not damaged anything.

32' 

Martinelli is sharp and he worries Hinteregger ... who just does enough, turning on clearing. But any time those two are in a race, Arsenal are in business.

31'

Luiz has had enough; he's replaced by Guendouzi.

29' 

Saka contests a high ball and Aubameyang wins the second, allowing him to screech past Abrahams. But Ronnow is out sharply to dive at his feet, taking a ganze wallop to the body for his trouble.

29' 
29' 
27' 

A lovely goal from elsewhere.

25' 

Arsenal will score eventually - Frankfurt are playing horrifically.

23' 

Trusay.

21'

Xhaka bends in well, and Hinteregger heads towards his own net but gets lucky when Ronnow, who's rushed out impetuously, gets a flap to it.

20'

Nice from Chambers who gets his back to Kostic and turns him; Kostic pulls him back as you'd have to, and is booked. Free-kick Arsenal on the right touchline, 25 yards out.

19' 

Frankfurt have shown nothing so far.

18' 

Luiz is still hurt, but also still playing.

17'

This is a great corner, swinging in, and Martinelli is there again, flicking a header goalwards ... that Fernandes humps off the line!

16'

Eeesh! In comes the corner and Da Costa heads straight to Martinelli, who should score ... but Ronnow makes a fine save at his near post.

15' 

Willock drives a low cross and Gelson Fernandes blocks it behind. I saw him score the winner for City in a Manchester derby, I think.

14' 

After quite a long time down - there was a stretcher knocking about briefly - Luiz is up.

12' 

David Luiz hurts himself hurting Silva and is down. He must've landed badly.

11'

Lovely form Saka, who slows up Abraham and glides past him, then teases in a lovely cross! Ye've gottae score! So Willock and Aubameyang both get up, get in each other's way, and Aubameyang heads wide.

11' 

First sight of Martinelli, who pokes and ferrets for the ball on the right by-line, but Abraham sees him away.

10' 

Willock makes a run down the left and looks to flick inside Hasebe, who gets legs in the way and has his heel trodden on - hard - for his trouble. He shouts extremely loudly, but he's ok.

8' 

Emery is now in grey.

6' 

In comes the corner from Kamada, and Da Costa gets to it first, but the ball skids off his forehead and well away from goal.

6' 

Meanwhile, Emery has been asked to change his black coat because Frankfurt are in black.

5' 

Kostic drives a low cross and Chambers blocks it almost at source. Corner.

5' 

You may have guessed that it's been a quiet start.

5' 
3' 

I guess Arsenal are playing a back four, with Mustafi and Sokratis in the middle of defence and Tierney and Chambers at full-back.

1' 

Karen Carney thinks Luiz is playing in midfield. I'm sure that'll go well.

1'

Off we go!

19:57 

Gosh, that ground is absolutely empty. Eintracht fans are banned after misbehaving in Vittoria which is a shame - the Koln game was amazing.

19:57 

Here they come!

19:56 

Martin Keown thinks Arsenal need to play well. More as I get it.

19:54 

The players are tunnelled.

19:51 

There's a good chance Inter will be in the Europa knockouts, and Salzburg won't be easy for anyone either, nor Leverkusen.

19:48 

Wolves are through after that 3-3 draw.

19:44 

I'm surprised Aubameyang is starting tonight. Maybe he's Emery's insurance policy - he daren't lose this, unless he's mentally checked out of the job, which doesn't seem to be the case.

19:40 

Back to Xhaka, it looked a bit like he'd never play for Arsenal again. That whole thing was a bit weird - if you're a player, you've got to expect noise if you jog off when your team needs a goal, and if you're a supporter, you've got to expect a player you're giving noise to give it back. Then you should all move on.

19:36 

Braga have made is 3-3 against Wolves, but if the score in other game stays as is, both sides will qualify.

19:32 

From a distance, the eagle looks lie it's wearing a top hat.

19:28 

And he's not playing because?

19:25 
19:23 

It's all going on!

19:20 

Ha, no they aren't. It's 2-2.

19:18 

No they aren't - it's 3-2. Meanwhile, Rangers, who are away at Feyenoord, now lead 1-2 after trailing 1-0. That's very impressive.

19:16 

Elsewhere, Wolves are 3-1 up in Braga. That'll see them through, and I doubt anyone will fancy them next.

19:12 

As for Frankfurt. they lost Haller and Jovic, their two centre-forwards in the summer. That was always going to sting.

19:08 

Arsenal's Europa team has been much more fun to watch than their league team so far this season, but this looks a bit dry in midfield. But I'm looking forward to seeing Saka and Martinelli, who Jurgen Klopp said was a star just the other week,

19:08 

There he is! Xhaka is back, Xhaka is back, hello, hello!

19:06 
19:06 
19:05 

Teams!

19:02 

Arsenal need a point to be sure of going through tonight; if they don't get it, Unai Emery won't half know about it. They whacked Eintracht in Germany, but they probaly won't play as well again, and Eintracht definitely won't play as badly.

19:00 

I think the first thing I have to say here is that a good mate of mine has a season ticket at Arsenal ... and the surname Frankfurt. For the first time ever, the purchase of a half and half scarf is legitimate.

19:00 

Ebening all, and welcome to Arsenal v Eintracht Frankfurt!
