Premier League - Arsenal v West Ham United

Arsenal make it two wins out of two as they seal a hard-fought victory at Emirates Stadium

Arsenal substitute Eddie Nketiah struck late to give Arsenal a 2-1 victory over a stubborn West Ham United.

Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal the lead in the 25th minute, heading in powerfully from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's cross.

West Ham levelled on the stroke of half-time after Ryan Fredericks' low cross was tucked in by Michail Antonio. 

The Hammers striker then headed against the crossbar as the dominant visitors pushed for a second goal.

But Nketiah tapped in with five minutes remaining following neat build-up play by Bukayo Saka and Dani Ceballos to secure a hard-fought win, maintaining their 100 per cent start to the campaign.
