West Ham 0-2 Arsenal

Oct 27, 2008

Julien Faubert’s own goal set up a win for Arsenal to keep them in touch with leaders Liverpool as West Ham slipped to a third successive league defeat.

Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie both hit the post before substitute Emmanuel Adebayor’s scuffed shot was directed beyond Robert Green via Faubert.

In injury time, Adebayor ran from the centre circle to finish off a delightful Nicklas Bendtner pass.

West Ham striker Carlton Cole was then sent off for a foul on Alex Song.

It was a pulsating end to a match which seemed to be heading towards a goalless draw, with West Ham’s defence and the impressive Green frustrating the visitors.
