FULL TIME
There we go.
Arsenal have fought back, they have the win, the three points, and they're top of the table.
The performance wasn't exactly vintage. It was pretty poor at times. But it's job done in Vienna.
90+3'
Leno picks up a booking for time-wasting.
Seven bookings in total now.

Partey plays a lovely dink into Willock but the forward is offside. Great vision.

Amazingly, Ritzmaier - the Barnsley loanee - is replaced by former Barnsley man Knasmullner.

90'
Last minute of the 90. The Gunners just rolling it around the corners now.
88'
Arsenal just casually looking to kill this game off now.
Aubameyang and Bellerin have changed the game with their experience and cutting edge. The result has looked in little doubt since their arrival and Luiz's equaliser.

83'
If Arsenal can avoid any silly mistakes then they will walk away with three points.
But Leno has had three very shaky moments at the back so that's a medium-sized 'if'.
80'
Rapid Vienna are still putting up a fight, but Lacazette has missed a golden chance to equaliser.
The ball over the top from Luiz falls for the Frenchman but he lashes at the effort.
78'
Bellerin and Aubameyang have changed the game and all the momentum is with Arsenal now.
74'
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

GOAL! RAPID VIENNA 1 ARSENAL 2 (Aubameyang)
Just like that.
Bellerin makes a perfect run in behind, puts it across the six-yard box and Aubameyang is there for a tap-in.
73'
CHAOS!
Leno smacks a clearance against Luiz and Fountas is once again with an open goal.
Gabriel does just about enough to delay the goal and Fountas' shot is well off target but it's more madness at the back.
70'
 David Luiz

GOAL! RAPID VIENNA 1 ARSENAL 1 (Luiz)
David Luiz makes amends for his error and brings the Gunners level.
He jumps highest to a Pepe free-kick and sends it past Strebinger who is in no man's land.
70'
Hofmann makes a brilliant interception after Pepe does so well to whip a ball in the box with Aubameyang lurking.
Ritzmaier picks up a booking for bodying Pepe this time.
