  1. Thanks for tuning in this evening. Stay with Sky Sports for the full match report and all the reaction.

  2. That's it - the final whistle blows and it's West Ham 1 Arsenal 3.

  3. 90+5

    Taylor tries to plant a cross into the box where four team-mates are waiting but gets too much behind it and it goes behind.

  4. 90+4

    Arsenal are hogging the ball in these dying minutes. Reid and Ramsey battle for it down the right and the Hammers man comes off better.

  5. 90+2

    Jenkinson gets forward down the right but his cross, intended for Giroud, flies well off target.

  6. 90+1

    Five extra minutes are added this half. Giroud comes close again from close range as Arsenal continue to apply pressure after a wonderful pass from Cazorla.

  7. 90

    Mannone makes a terrific diving save to deny Taylor as he tries a quick-thinking shot from range.

  8. 89

    ...but they do as McCartney wins a late corner for the Hammers on the left, which Noble steps up again to take.

  9. 88

    The visitors are still looking in control in these dying stages and in no hurry to give up possession.

  10. 86

    Taylor earns himself a booking after bringing down Arteta.

  11. 85

    Podolski makes way for Laurent Koscielny as Arsenal look to preserve their lead.

  12. 84

    More pressure from the Gunners as Giroud wraps his foot around the ball but can't get his shot on target.

  13. He's looked lively throughout and he's been rewarded with a goal after being set up by Walcott on the edge of the box, putting away a great left-footed shot into the top right-hand corner.

  14. 83


  15. 82

    The Hammers make another change as goalscorer Diame is brought off for Carlton Cole, meaning returning Carroll will have to go the full 90 minutes.

  16. 82

    Cazorla fires in yet another corner and Giroud gets his head to it but Jaaskelainen collects.

  17. 81

    Another chance and another corner for Arsenal after Mertesacker turns in the box and scuffs his shot just wide, with Collins getting a touch.

  18. 80

    There's some good build-up involving Walcott and Arsenal win another corner after Collins is forced to put it behind.

  19. 79

    Nolan tries to make it 2-2 and comes close from inside the box but he can't keep his shot down. Disappointing from the midfielder.

  20. 78

    Walcott does well on the counter-attack with a surging run down the right, demonstrating his pace before releasing a long shot which he plants decisively home. He's booked for his celebrations in the same manner as Diame.
