Arsenal started brightly with Song and Walcott both having chances. Olsson went close for Blackburn and Jack Wilshere then missed a sitter. Olsson then went close again as Almunia made a most unconvincing save. Other highlights of the opening 45 included Arshavin tracking back, N’Zonzi heading wide after Almunia came and didn’t catch as well as a Samba block on Nasri. First half highlights here. Just after the hour mark Robin van Persie shot straight at Robinson and on 76 minutes Arsenal were given a man advantage when Steven N’Zonzi was sent off for a high challenge on Koscielny. Nicklas Bendtner headed wide from a Van Persie cross with 10 minutes to go and with seconds remaining Michel Salgado cleared off the line from another Bendtner header. Deep into injury-time Robin van Persie headed over another good opportunity for the Gunners.
