Arsenal are out of the Champions League thanks to Alex's late header. The defender was immense throughout but Arsenal only have themselves to blame after wasting a whole host of chances in both legs.

Three minutes will be added. But it won't change matters too much.

The game is ebbing away and Arsenal's intensity is completely gone. They're heading out and they only have themselves to blame.
PSV make a change with Addo coming on for Farfan.
The Arsenal players' body language says it all. They look dejected, tired and distraught.
Arsenal are shellshocked. And Cocu drives a shot that scrapes along the sidenetting.
Walcott comes on for Clichy in a last-ditch chance to claw something back. It's too late now though.
And that silly foul from Hleb has led to Arsenal heading out of this tournament. It was a majestic leap from Alex who climbed above Diaby to nod home.
ARSENAL 1-1 PSV EINDHOVEN

Fabregas goes into the book for a late lunge on Xiang. He's looking tired now, as are most of his team-mates.

Good spell of possession for Arsenal but no sign of penetrating the PSV defence.
Maybe with his last touch of the game, Henry whips a free-kick over the wall and forces Gomes into a diving save.
Henry looks to be in a great deal of pain. He's hobbling around and I can't see him playing to much longer.

Arsenal decide to change things around with Abou Diaby replacing the tired legs of Ljungberg.
Henry has a cheeky punt from 25 yards and the keeper almost spills it. He gathers at the second attempt after fumbling the first.

Henry will finally be given his chance to come on and it's Baptista who comes off.
The game is so open now and both sides are streaking forward. Arsenal are lucky to get away with a penalty appeal after Denilson upends Farfan.
Arsenal have fallen back into their own half and PSV are looking to come at Arsenal now and kill the tie with the away goal.
It's end-to-end stuff and Mendez at the other end fires in a clever shot that just whistles wide. The crowd are lifted and the game is intense.
A minute later and Fabregas skies a glorious chance. Hleb set him up on the edge of the box and the Spaniard failed to keep his shot down.
Fantastic save from Gomes prevents Adebayor from making it two. It was a long ball over the top and Adebayor fired it straight at the keeper.
Arsenal are in front and it's the brilliant Brazilian Alex who has put through his own net. Denilson's corner from the right evaded everyone and Alex simply hung out a boot and it trickled over the line.
GOAL: ARSENAL 1-0 PSV EINDHOVEN

Feher earns himself a yellow card for a lunging dive on Ljungberg.
PSV enjoy a spell of possession and for a brief moment open up the Gunners down the left.

Koeman emerges from the tunnel and takes his seat in the dugout with his side just 45 minutes away from the quarter-finals.
Still no Henry for Arsenal. He retakes his place on the bench as the players on the field restart the match.
No change in the aggregate score despite Arsenal's intensity. PSV have Alex to thank for the score being tied at 0-0, although Arsenal will be rueing a host of missed chances.
HALF-TIME: Arsenal 0-0 PSV Eindhoven.
PSV look to hold on to the ball in the final stages of the half as they look to preserve their lead. So far they're doing it very well.

Kone can't continue. He's had to come off injured and he's been replaced by Tardelli.
Gilberto gets into all sorts of problems when put under pressure from Farfan. He ends up bringing down his marker but the referee waves away penalty appeals.

The first time Adebayor gets the chance to escape the clutches of Alex, Feher is across to cover and stop the striker in his tracks whilst bearing down on goal.

Hleb weaves his way through a cluster of blue shirts on the edge of the PSV box but is eventually outmuscled by Salcido. The visitors are starting to frustrate the Gunners.

The Spaniard is lucky to escape a booking inside his own half with a cynical challenge on Kone that leave the Ivorian in a heap on the deck.

Adebayor is causing all sorts of problems up front but so far Alex has been sweeping up the danger brilliantly.
Much more possession for the home side now. But PSV are holding their own in defence.
Another chance for Arsenal and this time it's Baptista who's fired over. It was an acrobatic volley from 12 yards after Fabregas' neat pass and it should have hit the target.
Alex is working hard in the PSV box. So far he's headed away any danger in the air to great effect. The latest from a Clichy free-kick from the left.
Arsenal remember need to win by to clear goals if they are to progress. They've had a handful of chances now and not taken any of them.
Two chances inside a minute for Arsenal. Two decent chances too. The first a low drive from the right hand edge of the box from Toure is palmed away. The second a header from Adebayor that glances wide when it should really have made the keeper work.
At the other end Farfan gives Gilberto a few problems and almost catches him out. The Arsenal skipper returns to his feet and prevents the striker from passing.

A nice flowing move involving Denilson and Hleb down the right ends with Ljungberg fouling his marker with a push. It was a decent chance to get in a header but instead PSV have a free-kick.
Jefferson Farfan spins and fires in a tame shot that finds the side netting. An early warning sign from the Peruvian striker.
A stoppage in play as Gallas leaves the field. The Frenchman has lost a contact lense and has shot off down the tunnel to find a replacement.
Better from Arsenal now as Fabregas and Denilson look to get the Gunners pushing forward.
Powerful, pacy run from Toure down the right gets him some room inside the box but he gets caught in two minds and his shot only finds the side netting. Fabregas and Baptista were screaming for it to be pulled back across.
It's not the start Arsenal were looking for and look a little nervous. PSV are dictating the pace of the game and Arsenal have been forced into a couple of silly mistakes.
Another corner for PSV and this time Fabregas is there to head clear.
The visitors are enjoying the first spell of controlled possession. They look comfortable on the ball and look to spread it around the park.
It's a fiery start with Arsenal looking to chase down the ball every time a PSV player gets near it.

Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor and defender Kolo Toure - both currently serving a domestic suspension - were included in the Arsenal line-up, with Brazilian Julio Baptista also up front.
The big team news for Arsenal is that Thierry Henry only makes the bench. All the talk throughout the week had centered around whether he was fit to start or play and Arsene Wenger has decided his star striker is not ready to make the starting 11.
Tonight's live commentary will see whether Arsenal can overturn a one-goal defecit against PSV Eindhoven. Kick-off is fast approaching and the teams have just been announced.
