  • What's gone wrong at Palace?

    The IndependentCarlo Ancelotti - who with three European Cups in his locker knows a thing or two about football management - put forward Alan Pardew as the best candidate to be England’s next manager in an interview with Mark Ogden in The Independent back in early December.

  • Higginbotham: Premier League wised up to Foxes... but it's too late

    The IndependentThe conventional wisdom says that Leicester City have a difficult next two matches, against Sunderland and West Ham United, which could open the title race back up for Tottenham Hotspur. But the conventional wisdom is wrong. For a counter-attacking side like Leicester, the easier games are not the ones against sides with nothing to play for and nothing to prove, teams who would be willing to sit back and play out the 0-0. Those are the hard games.

  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 0: We're off!
    4/9/2016 11:46:31 AM
  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 0: Oooh! Lanzini misses what would have been a bit of a sitter, heading wide from about 3 yards out, although it turns out he was offside so his blushes are spared. Lively start from the Hammers.
    4/9/2016 11:48:35 AM
  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 0: Early yellow card for Carroll who hacks down Koscielny.
    4/9/2016 11:50:19 AM

  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 0:  Arsenal getting into this game more now, they have a corner, but Iwobi and Ozil make a bit of a meal of it taking it short and it's a goal kick.
    4/9/2016 11:55:37 AM
  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 0: GOA... NO. OFFSIDE! Lanzini has it in the net after an acrobatic Andy Carroll bicycle kick falls into his path but he's flagged off. Payet and Lanzini were superb in the build up of that move. West Ham looking dangerous on the counter.

  • The tackle that earned Carroll a yellow card 

    4/9/2016 12:03:32 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 0 Arsenal 1 - Mesut Ozil
    Arsenal lead. West Ham fail to clear their lines properly and Iwobi slips a lovely ball through for Ozil who calmly slots it into the far corner of the net. Clinical.

  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 1: You could argue that West Ham have had the better of things so far, and they were extremely unfortunate to have a goal wrongly ruled out for offside. Nevertheless they still trail.
    4/9/2016 12:08:59 PM
  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 1: This game has become a bit scrappy, but is still pretty exciting. Not too many chances for either side in recent minutes, but  West Ham have a free kick in Payet territory...
    4/9/2016 12:14:29 PM
  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 1: Sadly the Frenchman doesn't shoot, and his cross into the area is easily cleared.

  • Arsenal celebrate their goal 

    4/9/2016 12:17:56 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 0 Arsenal 2 - Alexis Sanchez
    Similar goal for Arsenal, Iwobi again with the assist, lifting the ball over the last line of defence this time and Sanchez the man to slot the ball home.
    4/9/2016 12:20:39 PM

  • 4/9/2016 12:24:13 PM
  • West Ham 0 Arsenal 2: Oooh chance for West Ham, Carroll on the edge of the box does a clever turn and snapshot and Ospina gets down well to keep it out. 
    4/9/2016 12:25:58 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 1 Arsenal 2 - Andy Caroll
    West Ham have a goal back! Great cross in from Creswell and Carroll gets his head there first to knock it past Ospina. Game on.
    4/9/2016 12:30:34 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 2 Arsenal 2 - Andy Carroll
    It's all square! Carroll again! West Ham have a corner and Arsenal only half clear it, the ball is played back in and Carroll fluffs his kick at the ball but it doesn't matter, he gets a second go and scissors it in to the back of the net.
    4/9/2016 12:33:06 PM
    West Ham 2 Arsenal 2 - What a finish to the half! What a game!

    4/9/2016 12:54:17 PM
  • West Ham 2 Arsenal 2: GOA.. NO. West Ham have one disallowed again. Payet has the ball in the net after a mix up between Ospina and Koscielny, but the referee rules Carroll fouled Koscielny. Correct decision. 
    4/9/2016 12:55:48 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 3 Arsenal 2 - Andy Carroll
    That's a goal though. West Ham lead! Andy Carroll has a hat trick! Antonio whips the ball in from the right and Carroll leaps and heads in at the back post. What a game he's having.
