West Ham has hardly taken Arsenal’s scalp
West Ham and Arsenal finished 0-0 in a match from the Premier League’s mid-17th round. “Gunners” were the more active team on the pitch, but they failed to materialize their superiority, and at the end they could lose after Chicharito sent the ball into the crossbar.

Meanwhile, Arsenal has failed to return to a winning streak, and is down to Southampton.

The duel began fairly equally, with both teams playing offensive. In the 15th minute the “hammers” came to a goal after Arnautovich detected a centering in the net but was canceled due to ambush.
Arsenal gradually mastered the initiative and created several good opportunities, but on two occasions Ziru just failed to reach the ball after centering in the penalty area, and Alex Iubi’s shot in the 29th minute.

In the 36th minute the hosts were given the opportunity to execute a foul in front of the penalty area, but goalkeeper Chek came out and boxed.
In the 39th minute, the Referee could charge a penalty for West Ham after Jacka pushed Lansini into the penalty area. In the attack, Girus hardly injures Creswell when he strikes his head with an acrobatic ball.

After this first opportunity for West Ham, Arsenal pressed his opponent firmly. In the 56th minute Arsenal came to a good chance, but Iosil sent the ball out of the door. The ring around the hammer’s door continued to tighten, and the hosts seldom passed the center.
In the 69th minute, Wilshire defeated the West Ham door after close-ups of the ball.
In the 74th minute Wilshire was fired near the penalty area, but Adrian’s knock-on guard reflected the shock of Oswald. “The gunners” made a corner shot, but nothing followed. In the final minutes, the game moved almost entirely to the West Ham door.
With the approach of the end of the match both teams activated their action in the 90th entered as a reserve. Chicharito shook the crossbar behind Cech, but the ball thumped in front of the goal.

Iosil sent the ball out and the referee played the match.
