    Torreira spins the ball into a lovely area but Fabianski does well to claim the ball under pressure and relieve some of that pressure from the Hammers.

  • 74'

    The visitors seeing almost all of the ball in the last few minutes or so as they look for a way back into the game, Ramsey looked to have been a great substitution from Emery as he combines play for the Gunners. Big fifteen minutes left.

  • 66'

    Arsenal getting forward well but its the final ball that they haven't found today, West Ham have been great and have a well deserved lead but the visitors are starting to find their feet..

  • 64'

    CHANCE! Great chance for the visitors to go level as Kolasinac gets by the left flank after Iwobi threaded the ball through, the Arsenal fullback finds Aubemeyang who blasts a shot over under a little bit of pressure.

  • 63'

    CHANCE! Felipe Anderson tries to shift the ball out of play and Maitland-Niles nicks the ball and finds Ramsey, who shifts it onto his right and flicks the ball in the box to Aubameyang but he can't keep his header down.

  • 60'

    YELLOW! Antonio does well to beat Kolasinac who comes in late and brings him down, Jon Moss has no choice but to book the Arsenal man.

  • 57'

    CLOSE! Anderson whips a cross in from the right which Ogbonna meets, but he can only glance a header wide of the target.

  • 55'

  • 52'

    Rice's strike was his first Premier League goal, in what is his 42nd match in the competition. Meanwhile, it was a first top-flight assist for Nasri since he teed up a Manchester City goal against Chelsea in April 2016.

  • 40'

    Guendouzi gets up to his feet slowly after Nasri brought the 19 year old down outside the Gunner's box, he seems to be clutching his shoulder as the medical staff assist him.

  • 35'

    CLOSE! An almost wonder goal from Arsenal's wonder-kid as the guests move the ball up well and Guendouzi moves the ball onto his right foot outside the area and hits a beaut just wide of Hammer's goal.

  • 32'

    CLOSE! Best chance of the game falls for the hosts as Arnautovic does incredibly well to run the line and drop it off for Nasri who perfectly lays it off for Anderson who hits one sweetly, but its an inch wide of Leno's post.

  • 29'

    BLOCK! Great football around the Arsenal area as Anderson, Arnautovic and Nasri move the ball around quickly which allows Arnautovic to have a dig at Leno but Sokratis comes across to make a heroic block!

  • 25'

    Arnautovic darts towards the Arsenal area and gives the ball to Noble with a view to getting it back, but the Hammers captain is dispossessed as they fail to capitalise on the promising position.

  • 23'

    CHANCE! A deft flick from Iwobi releases Kolasinac in behind the West Ham defense. The Bosnian chooses not to try and Aubameyang at the far post and instead cuts it back for Lacazette, but Rice senses the danger and clears!

  • 20'

    Its been a fast start to the game with chances at either end but the keepers haven't really been tested. There is a great tempo about the game and the West Ham faithful are creating a booming atmosphere inside the London Stadium.

  • 16'

    Cresswell nutmegs Maitland-Niles on the left flank and whips a dangerous ball in between the Arsenal defense and their keeper, but a well timed dive lets Leno gather it.

    CHANCE! The Gunners move forward well as Guendouzi feeds Iwobi in on the right, its a bit long for the Frenchman who stands the ball up for Lacazette, but he can't keep his header down.

  • 13'

    SAVE! Great stop from Fabianski as Lacazette moves extremely well into the box following a great one-two with Iwobi, he has a dig at a tight angle that forces a great low save out of the former Arsenal keeper.

  • 11'

    The corner is hit long to Anderson, who after a good one-two with Arnautovic, finds himself some space to hit it on his left peg. Its high and wide though for the man with 8 goals this season.

  • 10'

    Cresswell is caught napping on the ball by Maitland-Niles, who kept his spot against Bellerin who recently recovered from injury. Iwobi wastes the the ball and West Ham break and win a corner.

  • 8'

    Good bit of play from both sides as they both move the ball up the pitch with speed, the majority of the ball is going out left for the Hammers as Antonio looks to be the most dangerous in claret.

  • 6'

    CHANCE! A well worked counter as Antonio gets by Kolasinac with his blistering pace, he finds Noble on the edge of the area, who plays a good one-two before seeing the space to shoot. Unfortunately its on his weaker left foot and it doesn't trouble Leno.
