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

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

  • 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.

    90+5
  • 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.

    90+4
  • Jenkinson gets forward down the right but his cross, intended for Giroud, flies well off target.

    90+2
  • 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.

    90+1
  • Mannone makes a terrific diving save to deny Taylor as he tries a quick-thinking shot from range.

    90
  • ...but they do as McCartney wins a late corner for the Hammers on the left, which Noble steps up again to take.

    89
  • The visitors are still looking in control in these dying stages and in no hurry to give up possession.

    88
  • Taylor earns himself a booking after bringing down Arteta.

    86
  • Podolski makes way for Laurent Koscielny as Arsenal look to preserve their lead.

    85
  • More pressure from the Gunners as Giroud wraps his foot around the ball but can't get his shot on target.

    84
  • 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.

  • GOAL! CAZORLA FOR ARSENAL!

    83
  • 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.

    82
  • Cazorla fires in yet another corner and Giroud gets his head to it but Jaaskelainen collects.

    82
  • Another chance and another corner for Arsenal after Mertesacker turns in the box and scuffs his shot just wide, with Collins getting a touch.

    81
  • There's some good build-up involving Walcott and Arsenal win another corner after Collins is forced to put it behind.

    80
  • 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.

    79
  • 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.
