West Ham vs Arsenal LIVE: Premier League latest score and goal updates

Arteta expects ‘twists’ in top four race

Follow live updates like Arsenal look to take a big step towards a top-four finish and Champions League qualification when they visit West Ham at the London stadium. The Gunners returned to pole position for fourth place after crucial wins over Chelsea and Manchester United, while rivals Tottenham slipped dropping points to Brighton and Brentford.

West Ham are also aiming to qualify for the Champions League, but their hopes have turned to their own European run. David Moyes’ side had work to do after losing the first leg of their Europa League semi-final to Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 in midweek, and travel to Germany on Thursday to turn the tide.

The Hammers haven’t beaten Arsenal for three years, but a win for the hosts would see them overtake Manchester United in the fight for sixth place. There will still be plenty of twists and turns to come in the race for the top four, with Arsenal’s trip to Tottenham looming on May 12, and Antonio Conte’s side putting pressure back on the Gunners after beating Leicester 3-1 earlier this afternoon. .

Follow live updates from West Ham vs Arsenal below, following the conclusion of Chelsea’s trip to Everton.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

86 mins: Fornals leaps past a few challenges and pushes his way into the Arsenal penalty area but Gabriel is in front to hammer the ball in.

Minimal pressure is being put on the Arsenal backline now.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

85 mins: Arsenal are running the clock here. It’s so, so easy for them to hit the ball unchallenged.

A reminder that a win here would put Arsenal back in fourth place. A win for West Ham would put them back in the top six above Manchester United. I can tell you right now – it’s not going to happen.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

83 min: Yarmolenko’s first contribution? Unnecessarily caught offside.

This second-half performance by West Ham will not only frustrate their own fans, but Tottenham supporters as well. It was a real “kick” at 45 minutes from the side of David Moyes.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

82 minutes: UNDER! West Ham’s final change of the afternoon as Said Benrahma makes way for Andriy Yarmolenko.

West Ham need some kind of boost as they have looked half asleep since Arsenal’s second goal.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

80 mins: Nketiah hangs on to a loose pass from Coufal and sends the West Ham defense back. He drifts past Zouma and uses Cresswell as a shield as he guides one to the bottom corner, but Fabianski is up to it.

I could have had my mouth full today, Nketiah.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

78 minutes: UNDER! Cedric Soares replaces the limping Takehiro Tomiyasu. Disappointing for the full-back who has spent so much time with calf issues. It seems to be the same problem as before.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

77 mins: After a spell in possession of Arsenal, Takehiro Tomiyasu kicks the ball in for treatment. Worrying for visitors.

West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

75 mins: Ambiance definitely plays a role in this game feeling a bit devoid of energy. It’s very quiet inside the London Stadium, apart from the Arsenal fans in the corner.

Are many of them keen to make sure rivals Tottenham don’t finish fourth? Just a thought.
