78' GOAL! Arsenal 2-0 AFC Wimbledon - Emile Smith Rowe 78'
74' Nuno Tavares has got all sorts of freedom down the left to charge forward but his final ball has let him down so far.
64' Martinelli’s cross finds Nketiah at the back post and he is inches away from doubling the lead.
58' Partey spreads out wide to Martinelli but the Brazilian takes on one man too many and is crowded out.
56' Partey spreads out wide to Martinelli but the Brazilian takes on one man too many and is crowded out.
50' Alex Woodyard wins the ball of Ainsley Maitland-Niles in the middle of the park and lets one off from range. It's blocked long before it can get to Bernd Leno though.
45' Second Half begins..
H-T Arsenal 1-0 AFC Wimbledon
40' Assal is flagged offside again.
38' Arsenal force another corner that Cedric swings into the box.
36' Delightful link up between Martinelli and Lacazette as the Frenchman feeds a lovely pass through for his younger teammate.
The Brazilian is onto it but the angle closes on him as he rounds the ‘keeper and Wimbledon get men back to clear his cross.
30' A heavy challenge from McCormick on Martinelli, and it's going to bring the first yellow card of the contest.
27' Lokonga registers an attempt, but he too is wayward with his effort.
26' Eddie Nketiah has space coming in off the left again but tries to pick out Partey rather than shoot and it’s turned behind for a corner.
22' A terrific run down the right tells you that Martinelli is indeed fine and his clipped cross has to be taken off the head of Lacazette by Nightingale.
11' Goal!
Arsenal 1-0 AFC Wimbledon - Alexandre Lacaette 11’
The captain for the night steps up and sends the ‘keeper the wrong way!
10' Penalty to Arsenal!
Lovely ball in behind from Nketiah and Martinelli is far too quick for his man.
7' Martinelli gets forward down the right and feeds Cedric, who whips a low ball into the middle but it's just behind Nketiah and is cleared away.
2' 4-3-3 for Arsenal in the early stages, with Eddie Nketiah playing right out on the left and Gabriel Martinelli on the right.
Lacazette is the central figure but will look to drop into that No10 position, too, you’d think.
1' First Half begins..
Arsenal Starting XI To Face AFC Wimbledon: Leno; Cedric, Holding, Mari, Tavares; Sambi, Partey, Maitland-Niles; Martinelli, Nketiah, Lacazette.
