  1. Get Involved - Best player outside top six

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    Martyn: Best player outside top 6 - still a bit under the radar but Ricardo Pereira is a cracking player who could start for any top 4 side.

    Luke Pedley: Best player outside the top 6 could be any of Filipe Anderson, Zaha, Matt Ryan, Mooy, Wilson or Vardy. Lots of quality knocking about in the league, it's just not matched throughout their squads.

    He has not been busy today, but Lukasz Fabianski might be the best goalkeeper outside that cosy club.


    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Michail Antonio gives way to Pedro Obiang in West Ham's third and final change.

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Andy Carroll competes with Sokratis Papastathopoulos

    Full marks to Andy Carroll for effort.

    It is not his natural game, but the big West Ham man is chasing gamely to try and shut down the Arsenal defenders in possession.

    Other brands are available...maybe Fly Emirates will branch out?

    Johnny Magrinho: We still talking about Arsenal’s kit? I had forgot all about it but I’ve just walked into the kitchen and saw a loaf of mouldy bread on the side... They aren’t sponsored by Warburtons or Kingsmill are they?

  5. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Matteo Guendouzi is the next Arsenal player to give Lucasz Fabianski some leisurely catching practice.

    Arsenal running out of steam...

  6. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    That was ugly from Aaron Ramsey.

    The Arsenal man dollies up an easy catch for Lukasz Fabianski in the West Ham goal. That was more up-and-under than a decent cross.

    These are good substitutions for me, Andy Carroll is nice and fresh and I didn't expect Samir Nasri to play much more than an hour.

    You have Robert Snodgrass who can run and he has also got quality.

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Marko Arnautovic waves to the crowd after being substituted

    Marko Arnautovic took off his gloves and waved to all sides of the ground on his way off.

    As charades go it is a very good attempt at 'China Calling'.

    Apparently he is a £35m target for a CSL side.


    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    And West Ham make their move.

    Robert Snodgrass replaces the neat, tidy Samir Nasri, who has looked good on his first appearance for more than a year.

    And on comes Andy Carroll in place of Marco Arnautovic.


    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Hector Bellerin is on in place of Ainsley Maitland-Niles in Arsenal's final change.

  11. Get Involved - Best player outside top six

    Ruben Neves

    Francis Edwards: The best player outside of the top 6 is clearly Ruben Neves

    Griggy: Zaha

    Sean O'Sullivan: Messi. You never specified the league

    I see what you did there, Sean.

  12. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Matteo Guendouzi tees off from 20 yards but that is straight down the gullet of Lucasz Fabianski.

    Arsenal are knocking at the door.

    Still at least 22 minutes to play.

  13. CLOSE!

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    It is amazing what being in the shop window for a mega-money move to a selection of European super clubs can do for you.

    Aaron Ramsey's delicious flick diverts Ainsley Maitland-Niles pass into the path of Alex Iwobi.

    Iwobi's shot drifts just wide of the far corner though.

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    It's a great ball in and Aubameyang's touch is good but he blazes it over the bar.

    Aaron Cresswell just about puts him off but you would still fancy the Arsenal man to score from that position.

    He's eyeing that Premier League top-scorer chart.

  15. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Arsenal are getting closer...

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang crashes a shot clean over the top after being played in by Sead Kolasinac.

    The angle was against him and Aaron Cresswell was lunging into view, but he will have wanted to hit the target at least.

    Aaron Ramsey

    Aaron Ramsey's arrival seems to have slapped some life into the Arsenal attack.

    The Welshman stands up a cross to the back post but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's hanging, looping header is always heading over...

    (Before Emery made changes)

    Sean: When will Emery learn?! Ozil Ramsey Torreira are our best players. You CANNOT leave them out. Criminal.

    Daniel: Take a CB off get Ramsey or Torreira on. Midfield too pedestrian!


    Daniel: Emery read my mind!


    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Sead Kolasinac goes into the book for an old-school clattering of Michail Antonio.

    Arsenal's frustrations are threatening to bubble over...


    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Lucas Torreira comes on for Granit Xhaka

    Lucas Torreira is on for Granit Xhaka in a straight anchorman swap.

    Aaron Ramsey is also in in place of Shkodran Mustafi.

    Arsenal to a flat-back four with Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis in the middle, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Saed Kolasinac in more conventional full-back roles.

  20. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

    Angelo Ogbonna heads just wide from the set-piece as Unai Emery prepares a double change to try and revive his flat-lining Arsenal side...
