Match Summary A ‘Go(a)lden Jubilee’ crowed the Football Mail. With Monty watching, Arsenal have yet to let in two in a game, but Froggatt’s snap shot and Clarke’s turn and shot change that. A poor back-pass sees Phillips profit, then Barlow nets Clarke’s cross after Scoular fouled Roper in the box.
