  • GOOOAAALLL! Villarreal double their lead, Albiol fires them 2-0 ahead! It comes after a corner is whipped into the box from the left by Parejo and Moreno flicks it on towards Albiol at the back post, who fires it into the back of the net from close range. The centre-back was completely unmarked, poor defending by Partey, who was supposed to be picking him up.

  • It has gone from bad to worse for Arsenal! Ceballos has been shown a second yellow card for a late challenge on Parejo and the midfielder has been sent off. The Arsenal players are furious with the decision as there didn’t seem to be an awful lot of contact. However, the referee won’t change his mind and Arsenal are down to 10-men.

  • GOOOAAALLL! Arsenal have pulled one back and have a vital away goal, it’s 2-1! Saka was fouled by Trigueros to win the spot-kick and Pepe coolly converted, firing it down the middle of the goal as Rulli dived to his right. Could they go on and turn this game around now?
