Declan Rice's terrific first West Ham goal proved enough to give the Hammers a first league win over Arsenal since 2015, at the London Stadium.

Nasri was given the nod to face his old club from the start, while Marko Arnautovic was selected to lead the West Ham line, despite ongoing speculation about his future.

Mesut Ozil was left out of the Arsenal squad altogether as Unai Emery named the same XI that started the Gunners' last Premier League game, the 4-1 win over Fulham.

The 19-year-old struck early in the second half, teed up by former Arsenal man Samir Nasri, as Unai Emery's side put in a flat away performance.

It took just three minutes of the second half for Rice to make amends, as he curled into the top corner after Granit Xhaka had made a hash of clearing Anderson's cross.

Alexandre Lacazette looked sharp early on, sending a looping half volley wide and then forcing Lukasz Fabianski into a smart block.

The defeat means Arsenal could end the weekend six points outside the top four, and could even slip to sixth if Manchester United hammer Tottenham on Sunday.
