Arsenal fell to a surprise defeat at the hands of West Ham on Saturday as Manuel Pellegrini's side produced a strong 1-0 win over Unai Emery's visitors.

With Felipe Anderson, Samir Nasri and Michail Antonio operating as an advanced midfield three in behind the front man, West Ham looked more comfortable in possession, forcing Arsenal back and enabling the Hammers to take the game to the opposition as the home side typically should.

Alexandre Lacazette went close to striking first for the visitors early in the first half, seeing his low strike saved by former Gunner Lukasz Fabianski, before Felipe Anderson nearly fired the home side ahead later on, only to see whilst low drive whistle wide of Bernd Leno's far post.

With an attack-minded team selection from Manuel Pellegrini, West Ham were able to assume the advantage of being the home team as the Hammers looked to play more on the front foot.

West Ham travel to face ?Bournemouth in another tough Premier League clash at the Vitality Stadium next Saturday before facing AFC Wimbledon in the fourth round of the FA Cup a week later.

Arnautovic's reaction to being substituted with 20 minutes remaining told the story of an uneventful afternoon in front of goal for the Hammers forward - and hinted that he might be gone by the end of the month.

Xhaka was at fault with a poor attempt at a clearing header which lead to Declan Rice's opener for West Ham, before being replaced early in the second half.
