David Moyes made 5 changes to his team that lost 1-0 against Everton over the weekend. Fabianski started in goal for the first time, while Mavropanos played against his former side. Mikel Arteta changed six players from the team that won 5-0 against Sheffield United, and Ramsdale returned to goal for the first since September. In addition to him, Gabriel, Vieira Jorginho Nelson and Trossard were also in the starting line-up.
In all competitions Arsenal lost only two of its last 32 matches (W24D6) against West Ham United, despite squandering a 2-0 advantage in their most recently meeting in April.
Nketiah looked particularly energetic as Arsenal started the match. The Gunners conceded an odd goal when Arsenal right-back Ben White turned a Bowen cross into his own goal. The former Brighton star met the delivery near the near post but he flicked the ball towards his own goal. Ramsdale had no chance in the goal. As the first half came to an end, Arsenal tried to equalize but failed.
West Ham doubled their advantage immediately after the start second half. Kudus’ moment of magic doubled West Ham’s lead at London Stadium. Aguerd’s long ball found his teammate at the far-post, but he made it happen. Kudus’s first touch was impressive, and his second touch was equally as impressive. After securing the ball on his right foot with his left, the forward fired his shot over the goal and past Ramsdale. Bowen added a third goal to the Hammers’ score as Arsenal looked defeated. Gunners substitute Martin Odegaard scored in the dying moments.
