West Ham United vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Samir Nasri Arsenal Man City

Samir Nasri Arsenal Man City

The 29-year-old, who has scored 18 and registered eight assists in his last 36 top-flight games, signed from Stoke in the summer of 2017 and after an initial hard start to life in East London he transformed into a fans favourite, and was named Hammer of the Year last term. Will Marko Arnautovic be up for this one?

Rice scored the victor as West Ham beat Arsenal 1-0 at the London Stadium on Saturday in his 55th appearance for the club before his 20th birthday - which is on Monday - and produced a man-of-the-match performance in that game.

The 19-year-old Rice placed the ball into the top of the net after being set up by Samir Nasri on the former Arsenal midfielder's league debut for West Ham.

Declan Rice's 48th minute goal was enough to condemn Unai Emery's side to a costly defeat which severely damaged their chances of Champions League qualification.

West Ham came close to opening the scoring when Rice headed wide when unmarked from a corner just before half-time.

Arsenal were unable to muster a clear cut chance in response, although leading scorer, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang fired over when he could have done better.

What does it mean?

However, if they are after a forward with an abundance of Premier League experience, 76 top-flight goals to his name, and a desire to play first team football, then they should look no further than Daniel Sturridge.

The victory takes West Ham to eighth place - level on points with Leicester in seventh.

Hello! Get ready - it's Premier League time! Nearly all of those crocked centre-backs and full-backs are near ready for a return to first team action and they better be because this West Ham side can play. He was more concerned at the time with getting his contract sorted out.
