Can David Moyes and West Ham United right their top-four ship by taking advantage of a busy Arsenal at the London Stadium on Sunday (start time 11am ET online via Peacock Premium)?

The Gunners lost 1-0 at home to Olympiacos on Thursday but that was enough to clinch a berth in the Europa League quarterfinals. They’ll now look to build on a North London derby win that’s positioned them five points back of sixth-place Liverpool.

West Ham sits fifth, seven points ahead of Arsenal but more concerned with what’s above them. The Irons have lost two of three but play their match-in-hand on fourth-place Chelsea, three points back of the Blues.

Here is everything you need to know as the Irons and Gunners go at it, as Joe Prince-Wright is on-site at the London Stadium.


Live updates from  the London Stadium – By Joe Prince-Wright

Thanks for joining me in east London for that utterly wonderful and chaotic game! 3-3. Arsenal fight back from 3-0 down to dent West Ham’s top four hopes. SO many chances. Drama galore. Loved every second of it, and I hope you did too!

ANALYSIS

REACTION

Lacazette to our partners Sky Sports: “We had the pressure, we knew it was a big game. We have to work a lot to be ready for the end of the season. It is really complicated, this kind of game, we need to work a lot. We knew even after the bad first half we could come back and score more.”

Lingard says West Ham needed to ‘kick on’ and ‘get more goals’ as the Hammers feel like it is a big missed opportunity. He adds West Ham are annoyed with some of the referees decisions too.

Moyes says ‘it shows we are up there competing with the best teams’ but is disappointed he team couldn’t hold on for the win. He praised Arsenal and their quality. He says dressing room is ‘devastated’ not to win, and he wants more than just a top 10 finish. They are two points off fourth.

FULL TIME: And breath. Wow. That was amazing. So many chances for both teams, and Arsenal will be delighted with the fightback but devastated with the first half. This game sums up their season. West Ham will be gutted too. Huge two points dropped for them as they push to finish in the top four.

SAVE! Should be 4-3 to Arsenal! Pepe hits a shot straight at Fabianski.

GOALLLLL! 3-3. Lacazette equalizes. Pepe’s cross and Laca powers home a header.

POST! How!? How are West Ham not 4-2 up!? Antonio hits the post from two yards out after great work from Benrahma. Wow. Arsenal all over the place at the back. West Ham should be home and dry.

BLOCK! At the other end Creswell does superbly to block Odegaard’s shot. End-to-end!

CLOSE! What a block from Kieran Tierney, twice, to deny Bowen and Antonio. West Ham almost go 4-2 up.

GOALLL! 3-2. Dawson own goal after a quick free kick. 30 minutes to go. Wow. What a game.

60th minute: Let’s just say David Moyes isn’t happy on the sidelines with a few refereeing calls…

55th minute: Arsenal look so dangerous in attack but West Ham are battling away.

CLOSE! Lacazette almost makes it 3-2 with a lob! Great clearance from Issa Diop on the line. ‘Wakeeee up’ screams one West Ham player. With a couple of expletives chucked in…

HALF TIME THOUGHTS: West Ham 3-1 Arsenal – And there could have been more goals!

45th minute: It is alllll Arsenal now. Saka has a shot deflected wide and West Ham are looking shaky. Set up for a great second half.

40th minute: Saka should score! He is clean through but shoots right at Fabianski. The game is so open now.

GOALLLL! Arsenal have woken up. Chambers crosses and Lacazette controls then smashes home, as it deflects off Soucek and in. What a game! West Ham 3-1 Arsenal.

GOALLLL! West Ham 3-0 Arsenal. 32 minutes in.  Honestly, they deserve this. Arsenal have been awful. Tomas Soucek was onside and flicks home Michail Antonio’s header.

28th minute: Arsenal starting to wake up, while Fabianski spills a routine catch but gets away with it. West Ham can play within themselves now with that two goal lead. Moyes looks delighted. Well, as delighted as he can look…

GOALLLLLLS! What. A. Goal. First, Jesse Lingard smashes home a stunner after great work from Michail Antonio. Bloody hell, that is a superb strike. West Ham deservedly lead against Arsenal… hang on, then Jarrod Bowen quickly makes it 2-0 after a quick free kick by Lingard. Wow! Shambles from Arsenal. West Ham in dreamland.

8th minute: So close for West Ham. Soucek twice nearly heads home. The Hammers have had all the play early on. Arsenal are asleep!

Kick off! West Ham have started brightly here. Coufal smashes one over.

Both teams going with a very attacking lineup. Lingard and Benrahma back in for West Ham, while Arsenal start Lacazette, Aubameyang, Odegaard and Saka in attack. This should be very tasty! Almost as tasty as the 90s dance classics blaring out over the PA system here at the London Stadium. Banger after banger!

Thoughts before kick off: Both teams have been smashing goals in during the warm up with Saka, Lacazette, Odegaard and Aubameyang on fire for Arsenal. Exquisite stuff!

Hello from east London on a pleasant spring day in England’s capital city!

Prediction

There could be a lot of goals Sunday, and it’s not crazy to believe that the Moyessaince continues for at least a few more weeks. That said, the Gunners wasted plenty of chances to bury Olympiacos and are unlikely to do that again. West Ham 0-2 Arsenal.

Newcastle lead Southampton 1-0 ahead of the sides’ League Cup semifinal second leg at St. James’ Park on Tuesday (watch live, 3 pm ET).

After securing their narrow advantage down on the south coast last week, Newcastle are firm favorites to reach a major cup final for the first time since the 1998-99 FA Cup, when the Magpies were beaten by the famed, treble-winning Manchester United side.

Key storylines & star players

Eddie Howe’s side has performed well above expectations this season, mounting a serious top-four challenge one or two years ahead of reasonable expectations. Getting to — and winning — a final in the same season would merely be icing on the cake for Howe, who took over the Premier League’s 19th-place side (5 points from 11 games) from Steve Bruce in November 2021.

Saints reached the League Cup final in 2017, but were somewhat controversially beaten by Manchester United at Wembley Stadium. Southampton have won more cup ties (6 of 7) than PL fixtures (4 of 20), which goes a long way toward explaining why Nathan Jones’ side sits rock-bottom of the PL table with just 15 points.

Premier League transfer news, live! Complete list of January transfers so far

0 Comments

The January transfer window is again seeing big-name imports into the Premier League, and the final hours of the window are seeing a flurry of deals take place.

Chelsea’s signed Benoit Badiashile and Andrey Santos, Newcastle’s formally welcomed Garang Kuol, and Liverpool’s reinforced its forward ranks with Cody Gakpo joining the Anfield set.

[ TRANSFER NEWS: Liverpool | Chelsea | Tottenham | Man City | Man United | Arsenal ]

There’s plenty of discussion about Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur making additions to deepen their squads’ top-four pushes, but nothing complete yet for either big name side.

The same is true for title-fighters Arsenal and Manchester City, though their top-end footing is a lot more stable.


Latest transfer deals developing – January 30

Weston McKennie to Leeds United is a done deal as the American midfielder has joined on loan until the end of the season, with Leeds having an option to buy him for $36 million.

Arsenal are pushing hard to sign Moises Caicedo, with the Ecuadorian midfielder not playing for Brighton in the FA Cup against Liverpool amid a reported new $86 million bid from the Gunners. Anthony Gordon has signed for Newcastle from Everton for a fee believed to be around $60 million.

After the break for the 2022 World Cup, the Premier League is back with a bang and the start to 2023 has delivered plenty of fun.


Who’s looking like title contenders and/or favorites?

Almost at the halfway mark of the 2022-23 season, Arsenal and Manchester City are looking head and shoulders above the rest though Newcastle is not going away and Manchester United has surged into contention.

The Gunners will have their hands full for the duration of their title challenge, as Erling Haaland continues to take the Premier League by storm with an almost impossible goal-scoring record.

[ VIDEO: Premier League highlights

Uneven Tottenham are hanging in the top four battle, while Liverpool is struggling to stay in the Champions League scrap. Chelsea has some work to do while surprising Fulham and Brighton are hanging around on the periphery with fine campaigns.


Who are the candidates for relegation?

Everton, Bournemouth, and Southampton currently occupy the relegation places.

But Leicester, West Ham, Nottingham Forest, Wolves, and Leeds all find themselves within a few points of the bottom three after a topsy-turvy start.

Below you will find the latest Premier League table.
