  • FT: It's all over at the Emirates and Arsenal are 3-1 winners. Matt Jarvis' header gave West Ham the lead, but a double from Lukas Podolski and one from Olivier Giroud helped the Gunners turn things around and move back into fourth place. 3-1.

  • Ramsey turns and shoots on the edge of the area but Adrian can comfortably take in his effort. Arsenal look keen to add a fourth.

  • There will be a minimum of four minutes added time.

  • The West Ham fans are still in good voice inside the Emirates as some of the crowd starts to filter out. Arsenal are returning to fourth and all eyes will be on Goodison Park tomorrow night as Everton could replace them with a win over Crystal Palace.

  • Cazorla is the Man of the Match tonight and he receives a warm ovation from the home crowd as he leaves the field. The Spaniard has been instrumental in every Arsenal attack.

  • The influential Santi Cazorla makes way for Carl Jenkinson as Arsenal make a change.

  • Nocerino curls an in-swinging delivery into the area where Carlton Cole is there to meet it, only to see his header soar high and wide with Szczesny untested.

  • West Ham have a free-kick in a promising position on the right. Nocerino stands over it with plenty of men to aim at in the box.

  • West Ham make their third and final change of the night as Carlton Cole replaces the ineffective Andy Carroll.

  • Demel feeds Nocerino down the left before receiving it back and picking out Noble. Diame encourages Armero to get forward down the left but his pass is too heavy and the move breaks down.

  • Carlton Cole is also preparing to come on for West Ham but this game now seems way out of their reach. The Hammers have put in a decent account of themselves but they have just lacked that edge in front of goal. Arsenal, on the other hand, have been pretty unconvincing but ultimately clinical.

  • In the midst of that third Arsenal goal, West Ham have made two changes with Joe Cole and Ricardo Vaz Te replacing Downing and Jarvis.

  • That's another emphatic finish from Podolski who has looked full of confidence in front of goal tonight. It was good build up play with Cazorla spraying the ball out wide to Giroud before Ramsey's inch-perfect header opened things up for Podolski who smashed in Arsenal's third.

  • GOAL! Lukas Podolski nets his second of the night as he turns away from Tomkins before firing into the roof of the net after Ramsey's cushioned header into his path! 3-1.

  • CHANCE! Aaron Ramsey is involved for the first time and he sees his effort fly over the bar after some good work by Giroud. The striker skipped away from two defenders with ease before poking the ball towards Ramsey who was just unable to keep his shot down.

  • Arsenal are the ones pegged back inside their own half now as West Ham continue to push for an equaliser. Giroud is helping with the defensive duties and he out-muscles Armero on the ball to break down the attack.

  • Noble floats the free-kick towards the back post where Carroll is challenging for it, but Szczesny does well to come off his line and commandingly pluck it from the air.

  • Arsenal make the first substitution of the night as Aaron Ramsey replaces Tomas Rosicky.

  • Aaron Ramsey is preparing to come on for the hosts as West Ham start to mount an attack. Vermaelen brings Downing to the ground and the visitors have a free-kick with the opportunity to get a ball into the box.
