Classic match

Arsenal 0-1 West Ham United
Premier League
7 April 2007

Having been the last team to win at Arsenal's Highbury stadium the previous season, the Hammers continued their great escape in 2006/07 by becoinge the first side to triumph at their new Emirates home.

Bobby Zamora scored the only goal of the game, just seconds before the interval, but the visitors' success owed much to Robert Green and the frame of the goal.

Cesc Fabregas was denied when one-on-one with the Hammers keeper after just two minutes, while Emmanuel Adebayor and Freddie Ljungberg also went close early on.

The Hammers were playing on the break and they scored against the run of play on the stroke of half time when Kolo Toure allowed Zamora too much space to run onto a lofted pass and lob Jens Lehmann.

After the break Green made a superb save to prevent Adebayor's close range header from levelling the scores.

When Green was beaten, the woodwork saved West Ham as both Fabregas and Gilberto struck the post as the visitors held out for a vital win.
