Against the odds West Ham had dominated the first-half of this London derby against Arsenal, recovering from a temporarily nervous start to repeatedly go close to taking the lead through the irresistible trio of Marko Arnautovic, Felipe Anderson and — above all — Samir Nasri, his every willowy trick and flick booed by the away end like it was a mortal sin.

This West Ham front three is just so irresistibly West Ham: three excellent but enigmatically highly strung performers who have the God-given talent to run rings around any defence, if not always the aptitude.

It is Arsenal’s first defeat at West Ham in 12 matches.

Should Chelsea beat Newcastle at home today they will move six points ahead of Arsenal; should Manchester United beat Tottenham, Arsenal may even fall out of the top five altogether.

Lucas Torreira and Bellerin soon joined him and — inevitably — Arsenal began to pin West Ham back.

The Frenchman was at the heart of everything West Ham did well.

The cheers of the away end were however abruptly silenced by the linesman's flag, with Kolasinac quite clearly offside.
