  4. 19:51 #753

    109'- GOOOOAAAALLL! Arsenal look to have won it! Lacazette nods down a ball into the path of Smith Rowe and from a tight angle he tucks the ball into the far corner. Can the Gunners hold on?

    Half-time of extra-time. Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle.

  8. 19:33 #749

    96'- Elneny's volley from the edge of the box comes down with snow on it. 0-0

  9. 19:32 #748

  10. 19:31 #747

    93'- CHANCE! Tierney and Smith Rowe combine nicely down the left, with the latter seeing his effort blocked inside the area. 0-0

  11. 19:27 #746

    91'- Extra-time underway at the Emirates. 0-0

  12. 19:26 #745

    I've just seen that Leno save again and wow! It's a wonderful bit of goalkeeping from the German.

  13. 19:23 #744

    Full-time. Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle. The snooze-fest continues at the Emirates as we head to extra-time.

  14. 19:22 #743

    93'- Two very nervy moments for Arsenal as Leno makes an important save and then Smith Rowe is shown a red card for a challenge on Longstaff, but VAR changes the decision and the youngster stays on. 0-0

  15. 19:16 #742

    88'- Sorry for the lack of updates, but literally nothing is happening. Extra-time looms. 0-0

  16. 19:00 #741

  19. 18:49 #738

    60'- CHANCE! Elneny clips a ball through for Aubameyang and he takes the shot on, but his clipped effort from a tight angle drifts harmlessly wide of the far post. 0-0

  20. 18:45 #737

    56'- First Arsenal change as Smith Rowe replaces the disappointing Nelson. 0-0

  21. 18:45 #736

    56'- HUGE CHANCE! Newcastle should be ahead. Arsenal fail to clear a free-kick into the area and Hendrick drives the ball back in towards Carroll who turns it wide from six yards. 0-0

  22. 18:41 #735

    53'- Smith Rowe getting ready to come on for Arsenal. 0-0

  23. 18:33 #734

    46'- Back underway at the Emirates. 0-0

  24. 18:18 #733

    Half-time. Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle. Chances few and far between at the Emirates with both teams lacking some much-needed spark. Mikel Arteta will certainly be demanding more from his side at the break.

  25. 18:05 #732

    33'- CHANCE! Neat play between Aubameyang and Pepe allows the latter to break into the box, but he gets caught in two minds as to whether to cross or shoot and Dummett gets across to clear. 0-0

  26. 18:00 #731

    28'- CHANCE! Tierney does brilliantly down the left to drive beyond his man and then the cutback is on a plate for Nelson, but he takes a touch instead of shooting and Newcastle crowd him out. 0-0

  27. 17:57 #730

    25'- CHANCE! Arsenal close to opening the scoring as Aubameyang beats the offside trap and then forces a save from Dubravka before Willian skies the rebound over. 0-0

  28. 17:52 #729

    20'- Nervy moment for Arsenal as Nelson's sloppy pass allows Newcastle to counter, but Luiz does well to block Carroll's shot and then Almiron is offside. 0-0

  29. 17:49 #728

    18'- Nothing really going on at the moment. The tempo of the game is relatively slow with neither side creating anything of note. 0-0

  30. 17:40 #727

    9'- Arsenal try to break with Nelson and Lascelles comes across before chopping him down. The Newcastle skipper goes into the book. 0-0

  31. 17:34 #726

    3'- Another shot for Arsenal this time from Pepe as he makes Dubravka work. Good early intent from the Gunners. 0-0

  32. 17:33 #725

    1'- Arsenal have the first shot on target as Nelson forces Dubravka into a save down low. 0-0

  33. 17:32 #724

    1'- Underway at the Emirates. 0-0

  34. 17:30 #723

    Teams are out at the Emirates. Kick-off is moments away.

  35. 17:20 #722

    From footage on Twitter it looks like Martinelli rolled his ankle quite badly. Let's hope it's nothing too serious. Nelson now officially replaces him the starting XI.

  36. 17:14 #721

    Looks like it could be bad news for Arsenal and Gabriel Martinelli. The Brazilian has gone down injured in the warm-up with what looks to be an ankle problem. He's now gone down the tunnel in tears and Reiss Nelson looks likely to take his place in the starting XI, but we are still awaiting confirmation.

  37. 17:00 #720

    Arsenal and Newcastle have met 10 times before in the FA Cup. The sides have won four games apiece, with the Gunners winning the 1998 final 2-0 at the old Wembley and the most recent tie in 2008 thanks to an Emmanuel Adebayor brace and a Nicky Butt own goal.

  38. 16:52 #719

    Mikel Arteta makes seven changes from the win over West Brom, but he still names a strong team. David Luiz and Cedric come into the defence, while Willock, Elneny, Willian, Pepe and Martinelli also come into the side, with Aubameyang leading the line. What do you make of the starting XI?

  39. 16:43 #718

    Newcastle subs: Gillespie, M Longstaff, Ritchie, Gayle, Yedlin, Murphy, Anderson.

  40. 16:42 #717

    Newcastle team to face Arsenal: Dubravka, Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Hayden, Longstaff, Hendrick, Almiron, Joelinton, Carroll.

  41. 16:41 #716

    Arsenal subs: Runarsson, Chambers, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Saka, Nelson, Lacazette, Nketiah, Smith Rowe.

  42. 16:40 #715

    Arsenal team to face Newcastle: Leno, Cedric, Luiz, Mari, Tierney, Willock, Elneny, Pepe, Willian, Martinelli, Aubameyang.

  43. 16:38 #714
