Goals: West Ham 1-2 Arsenal

West Ham United’s hopes of European qualification took a blow as Arsenal scored a 2-1 Premier League victory at London Stadium.

As has been the case too often in recent weeks, the Hammers matched their opponents for long periods in general play, only for defensive lapses and a failure to make the most of promising positions in attack to cost them a positive result.

And so it was that two set piece headers from Rob Holding and Gabriel saw the Gunners steal a victory their all-round performance arguably did not warrant, and render Jarrod Bowen’s 16th goal of the season a mere consolation.

The defeat leaves West Ham seventh in the table, three points ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers, who have a game more to play.
