Declan Rice's sweet finish for his first West Ham goal downs wasteful Unai Emery's Arsenal to five Premier League defeat on Saturday early kick-off at London Stadium.

Samir Nasri was making his Premier League debut for the club as he continues his comeback from an 18-month ban for receiving an intravenous treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in December 2016, contravening World Anti-Doping Agency rules.

Former France international 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 while Mesut Ozil was left out of the Arsenal squad altogether as 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 Gunners side put in a flat away performance to see Hammers get their first league win over Arsenal since 2015

After clashes with Fulham and West Ham, the London derbies keep coming for Arsenal welcome Chelsea next Saturday to Emirate Stadium while Hammers visit Dean Court to battle Bournemouth earlier on the same day.
