Arsenal vs West Ham live score, result, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League match

Arsenal welcome fellow Londoners West Ham United to Emirates Stadium this evening as the Gunners look to retake top spot in the Premier League table.

Last weekend, Mikel Arteta’s side picked up a respectable point at Anfield in an entertaining 1-1 draw. Liverpool then played on Boxing Day, when they defeated Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor to go top of the table.

David Moyes’ men come into this one on the back of a fantastic 2-0 home win over Manchester United thanks to goals from Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus. If they were to come away from North London tonight with three points, they can jump into sixth position.

Arsenal vs West Ham live updates, highlights from Premier League

HT: That’s all for the first half and West Ham lead after scoring with their only shot on target through Soucek. 

45+4: Odegaard is brilliantly tackled by Ogbonna in the box to deny a potential goal-scoring opportunity. 

45th minute: Six minutes of added time after the lengthy goal check and the Paqueta injury. 

42nd minute: Saka off the post! West Ham lose the ball in a dangerous position and Arsenal look to capitalise but Saka’s right-footed strike rockets off the near post. 

37th minute: Arsenal create the chance well but Martinelli’s effort is well wide. They need to start testing Areola. 

31st minute: Paqueta picks up a knock and is substituted for Said Benrahma.

27th minute: Arsenal have a free-kick in a dangerous position on the left of the 18-yard box but they really mess it up and it’s a waste of an opportunity.

20th minute: This stat via Opta isn’t fun reading for Gunners fans: Arsenal have beaten West Ham 8 times in the Premier League having conceded the first goal, more than they have against any other opponent in the competition.

17th minute: After a lengthy VAR check to see if the ball remained in play before Bowen teed up Soucek, the goal stands! 

13th minute: GOAL! 0-1 WEST HAM! Emerson’s delivery is dealt with poorly by Zinchenko whose clearance is right into the path of Bowen and he knocks it back to Soucek who smashes past Raya. 

10th minute: Slight chance for the Hammers as Ward-Prowse’s free-kick finds Soucek but he can’t redirect it goalwards and it goes out for a goal-kick. 

4th minute: The Gunners have made a bright start and Martin Odegaard has just found Bukayo Saka with a neat backheel but the Englishman’s shot was straight at Areola.

1st minute: We’re underway at the Emirates! 

15 minutes until kickoff: Nearly time for kickoff at the Emirates. Arsenal fans, you’ll be glad to read that Spurs are 2-0 down at Brighton in the first half. 

30 minutes until kickoff: Jarrod Bowen is making his 150th Premier League appearance this evening, can he mark it with a goal?

1 hour until kickoff: Team news is out! With Kai Havertz suspended this evening, Leandro Trossard comes in for the Gunners. Angelo Ogbonna starts as the skipper for the visitors.

1 hour 30 mins until kickoff: Bukayo Saka has been involved in 18 goals in his last 17 home games in all competitions, with 11 of those finding the back of the net and assisting seven. There’s no place like home…

2 hours until kickoff: At least Declan Rice is playing with Bukayo Saka now!

Arsenal vs West Ham lineups

Arsenal will miss the improving Kai Havertz due to a suspension for yellow card accumulation, after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Liverpool last time out. A groin injury for Fabio Vieira means it will likely be Leandro Trossard who steps in for the absent German.

Thomas Partey has returned to training and could be brought back into the fold in this match, needing a few substitute appearances before he’s ready to start. Takehiro Tomiyasu remains out with a calf injury, and Jurrien Timber is a long-term absentee thanks to his serious knee injury.

Arsenal starting lineup (4-3-3): Raya (GK) — White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko — Odegaard, Rice, Trossard — Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.

Arsenal subs (12): To be confirmed

Only the knee injury to Michail Antonio is a concern for David Moyes, who otherwise has his full contingent of West Ham players at his disposal.

Antonio was injured on international duty with Jamaica back in November, and is “improving and getting closer” according to Moyes, but is unlikely to be ready for action just yet.

West Ham projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Areola (GK) — Coufal, Mavropanos, Ogbonna, Emerson — Soucek, E. Alvarez — Kudus, Ward-Prowse, Paqueta — Bowen.
