The 29-year-old, who has scored 18 and registered eight assists in his last 36 top-flight games, signed from Stoke in the summer of 2017 and after an initial hard start to life in East London he transformed into a fans favourite, and was named Hammer of the Year last term.

Declan Rice revealed how his West Ham team-mates have been urging him to try his luck in front of goal after he finally opened his account against Arsenal.

West Ham inflicted a painful 1-0 defeat on Arsenal at the London Stadium and their patchy form away from home continued, which has seen them lose three out of their last four games on the road.

Ozil was declared fit and ready for duty but was left out of the match day squad by head coach Unai Emery.

Nasri then teed up Felipe Anderson to fizz a low strike wide, before Matteo Guendouzi arrowed a strike just past the post from distance with Fabianski at full stretch and Declan Rice headed just off target in the closing stages of an even first half.

West Ham move up to eighth spot in the standings while Arsenal remain fifth in the table, and fail to join Chelsea in fourth spot on points.

Arsenal improved following the introduction of Aaron Ramsey - who is said to have agreed a deal with Juventus this week - after 59 minutes but failed to make their chances count, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Iwobi missing two opportunities of note.

He's bagged seven goals in 16 league games so far this season, but earlier this week the club were rocked by reports that he was set to leave for an unnamed China club for a reported £35million.

What does it mean?

Hello! Get ready - it's Premier League time! At the age of 19, 20 tomorrow, I don't think there's many people better than him in that holding position. He was more concerned at the time with getting his contract sorted out.
