A quick-fire double from Marko Arnautovic ensured West Ham United took a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion. A tepid first half was followed by a bright start to the second period for the Irons, but it looked like a disappointing opening to 2019 after goals for the away side by Dale Stephens and Shane Duffy. Substitutes Mark Noble and Michail Antonio would turn the game back for the Hammers, however, providing an assist each in the 66th and 68th minute respectively for Arnautovic, who fired home and secured the draw.

West Ham United are safely through to the Emirates FA Cup fourth round after scoring a 2-0 win over Birmingham City at London Stadium. Marko Arnautovic put the hosts ahead within two minutes on a cold Saturday lunchtime, nodding in from close range after Angelo Ogbonna’s initial header from Grady Diangana’s corner had been saved by Lee Camp. Both teams created chances to add to the scoreline throughout the 88 minutes that followed before substitute Andy Carroll, who had replaced Arnautovic in the first half, made sure Manuel Pellegrini’s team will be in the draw for the Fourth Round with a late header of his own.

Declan Rice’s first West Ham United goal was enough for the Irons to secure a brilliant 1-0 victory over Arsenal in front of a record attendance at London Stadium. The Academy graduate stuck on 48 minutes, bending home a wonderful finish worthy of winning any game from just inside the area, after receiving a pass into his path from Samir Nasri. The No41 went close moments before the restart too, seeing a header just climb over the bar, while Felipe Anderson also went close for the home side. Alex Iwobi looked close to levelling the game for Arsenal, but could not squeeze his shot home, meaning Rice’s exquisite finish was the difference, leaving the Claret and Blue supporters among the 59,946 attendees at London Stadium ecstatic.

West Ham United fell to a frustrating 2-0 defeat at AFC Bournemouth when goals from the Cherries’ front two Callum Wilson and Josh King were enough to put them to the sword. The Hammers struggled to get going on a soggy South Coast and were punished by the home side’s greater thrust in the attacking third after half time. Samir Nasri went close with a low drive from the edge of the box in the opening period, while Andy Carroll blazed over when well placed early in the second 45, but it wasn’t to be the Hammers’ day.

West Ham United crashed out of the Emirates FA Cup as they fell to a 4-2 defeat at AFC Wimbledon. The Hammers had an horrendous first 46 minutes of the game to blame for their exit, as two goals from Scott Wagstaff added to Kwesi Appiah’s opener to put the League One side into a scarcely-believable 3-0 lead. West Ham did haul themselves back into the contest through half-time subs Lucas Perez and Felipe Anderson, but Wimbledon did not crumble in the face of Hammers pressure and regained their composure to add a fourth at the death. There was no way back from that for a shell-shocked Hammers as they saw their FA Cup hopes come to an end for the 2018/19 campaign.

Michail Antonio scored yet another goal against Liverpool to earn the Hammers a hard-fought point at London Stadium. Antonio just loves playing the Reds – his 28th minute leveller here was his fifth in seven appearances against the Merseysiders in Claret & Blue. His goal, converting a clever free-kick move started by Robert Snodgrass and Felipe Anderson, cancelled out Sadio Mane’s contentious opener and gave the east Londoners a share of the spoils their intense approach merited.

A trio of second half goals saw West Ham United fall to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Romain Saiss powered home a header to give the home side the lead, before Raul Jimenez struck twice in the final ten minutes to secure the win for Wolves. West Ham’s best move of the opening 45 minutes was their first. Mark Noble found Declan Rice before combining with Felipe Anderson. The Brazilian held, waiting for the run from Arthur Masuaku, finding the left-back in space inside the penalty area.

Crystal Palace:

Guaita, Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Sakho, van Aanholt, Milivojevic, McArthur (Meyer), Schlupp, Townsend, Zaha, Benteke (Batshuayi)

West Ham United were pegged back by Wilfried Zaha's second half goal as they shared the points with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The visitors deservedly led at the break through Mark Noble's 27th minute penalty, but Palace came out strongly after the interval and did more than enough to earn their leveller. James McArthur and Michy Batshuayi both passed up one-on-one opportunities before Zaha's deflected effort 14 minutes from time ensured the final score would be 1-1.

Fulham:

Rico, Odoi, Nordtveit, Ream, Bryan, Chambers, Seri (Anguissa), Cairney, Sessegnon (Markovic), Babel, Mitrovic

West Ham United returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory against relegation-threatened Fulham at London Stadium. The Hammers had to come from behind after Ryan Babel swept the Cottagers into a third minute lead, and they owed much to Robert Snodgrass’ wicked set-piece delivery for turning the game on its head before the interval. The Scotsman sent two decisive corners into the danger area, which led to Chicharito and Issa Diop making it 2-1 to the hosts.

BEN JOHNSON makes his Hammers debut against MANCHESTER CITY at the Etihad Stadium

Manchester City:

Ederson, Danilo, Kompany, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Gundogan, D. Silva, de Bruyne, Mahrez (Sterling), Sane (B. Silva), Aguero (Foden)

West Ham United fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat at title-chasing Manchester City, when Sergio Aguero’s second half penalty proved the difference. City bossed possession and had plenty of shots on the Hammers goal, but a valiant defensive effort threatened to frustrate the hosts until they made their breakthrough on the hour. Before that, Andy Carroll went close with an effort on the stretch not long into the second period, but after registering a shot count of 20 to two, the home side would have counted themselves unfortunate had they not come away with all three points.

Newcastle United:

Dubravka, Lejeune, Schar (Dummett), Lascelles, Ritchie, Hayden (Atsu), Longstaff (Diame), Manquillo, Perez, Almiron, Rondon

West Ham United marked the official unveiling of the Billy Bonds Stand at London Stadium with a deserved 2-0 win over Newcastle United. Declan Rice and Mark Noble both found the net – with each scoring their second goal of the season – in the first half to ensure all three points remain in Stratford with Manuel Pellegrini’s side. On an evening when the legendary Billy Bonds was recognised at London Stadium with the renaming of the East Stand in his honour, West Ham began the match with a tempo and passion befitting the iconic captain. It was fitting that the two men that put West Ham in control against Newcastle were both Academy graduates, much like Bonds himself. Rice – heralded as the next big player out of the West Ham Academy – won the Young Player of the Year at the London Football Awards on Thursday, and continued his fine week by putting the Hammers in front, turning home Robert Snodgrass’ corner with a headed effort on seven minutes. With five minutes remaining of the first period, Florian Lejeune brought down Chicharito in the penalty box, giving the home side a penalty. Up stepped captain Mark Noble, who confidentially dispatched the spot-kick for his second goal of the season.

Cardiff City:

Etheridge, Peltier, Bennett (Bacuna), Morrison, Ecuele Manga, Arter (Paterson), Murphy, Gunnarsson, Camarasa (Ralls), Niasse, Hoilett

West Ham United fell to a frustrating 2-0 defeat at Cardiff City, when a goal at the start of each half kept the points in South Wales. Junior Hoilett and Victor Camarasa punished some sloppy defending from the visitors to get the goals, which Cardiff proceeded to defend relatively comfortably. Declan Rice struck the post in the second period, but the Hammers were unable to break down a stubborn home rearguard with regularity and they could have few complaints over the final score.

West Ham United maintained their unbeaten home start to 2019 with a dramatic 4-3 victory against Huddersfield Town. Tey sure did it the hard way though, as Huddersfield looked certain to take the points when they moved into a 3-1 lead midway through the second half. However, West Ham came storming back with an incredible final 15 minutes, which saw them net three times and leave Huddersfield heartbroken. The first goal of the game,Marko Arnautovic was fouled in the left channel, giving Aaron Cresswell the chance to get the ball into the box.  Manuel Lanzini took it down and was bundled over by Aaron Rowe, giving referee Jonathan Moss no choice but to point to the spot. Noble stepped up and did the rest. he lead was to only last two minutes though, as West Ham switched off from a corner, allowing Juninho Bacuna all the space he needed to head home from Aaron Mooy’s delivery. Worse was to follow 13 minutes later when Huddersfield took the lead through Karlan Grant. Manuel Pellegrini responded by bringing Chicharito on from the bench at the break.

Arnautovic had a chance to level on 63 minutes when Felipe Anderson made a strong burst from midfield and clipped a cross into the striker’s feet. He took the shot on first time, but Lossl made the save. Two minutes later, Huddersfield added a third in fine style as Grant cut the ball onto his right foot and arrowed a shot beyond Lukasz Fabianski’s dive and into the top corner. Huddersfield looked to be on the cusp of a rare victory, but the Hammers were not done yet and came roaring back into the contest in the final 15 minutes. First, Ogbonna rose highest to send a towering header from Aaron Cresswell’s left-wing corner into the net to make it 3-2. Then, with seven minutes remaining, another Cresswell corner flew through the box and to Samir Nasri on the other side. He crossed to the back post and Chicharito was there to plant a diving header past Lossl. There was still more drama to come, and in the first of five added minutes, Cresswell played a short corner to Felipe Anderson, who took a touch and sent a wickedly curving ball into the six-yard box where Chicharito glanced his header home.

West Ham United’s unbeaten 2019 at London Stadium came to an end as first half goals gave Everton a 2-0 win in the Premier League match. Kurt Zouma’s fifth minute header and Bernard’s easy finish on 33 minutes secured the points for the visiting Toffees against an Irons side that struggled to match the away team. Manuel Pellegrini’s Hammers boast the record for most points earned from deficits in the Premier League this season – picking up 15 points in games they have been behind in – but there was no sign of a repeat for West Ham in this match.

A pair of Paul Pogba penalties sent West Ham United to a harsh 2-1 defeat at Manchester United. The Hammers were positive and inventive throughout and looked likely to go onto a positive result when Felipe Anderson notched his first goal of the year to cancel out Pogba’s first spot-kick early in the second period. Michail Antonio hit the crossbar and drew an outstanding fingertip save from David de Gea as the visitors pressed, but Pogba was handed his second chance from 12 yards ten minutes from the end, and the Frenchman made no mistake once more to seal the points.

Manchester United:

De Gea, Dalot, Jones, Smalling, Rojo (Pereira), Mata (Rashford), Fred, Pogba, Lingard, Martial, Lukaku (Greenwood)

Eden Hazard’s double settled Monday night’s London derby at Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea overcame the Hammers 2-0. The Belgian was an almost unstoppable force throughout, opening the scoring with a world class individual goal midway through the opening period, weaving through four West Ham challengers to find the net. Chelsea’s incisive football threatened to blow the visitors away in the opening period, but they came again in the second half and went close through Manuel Lanzini and Aaron Cresswell. Ultimately though, Hazard had too much for the east Londoners, and he sealed the points for his side with a second at the death.

Chelsea:

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek (Barkley), Hudson-Odoi (Pedro), Hazard, Higuain (Giroud)

West Ham were dealt a late blow as Harvey Barnes’ stoppage time equaliser gave Leicester a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw at London Stadium. Michail Antonio had headed the Hammers into the lead before half-time, but Jamie Vardy’s near-post strike after the interval brought the Foxes back into the tie. The Hammers weren’t to be deterred and, four minutes after replacing Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez popped up with what looked to be the winner, tapping home after Pedro Obiang’s effort rebounded off the post. With all three points close to being secured, Leicester substitute Barnes escaped the West Ham backline before firing low into the bottom corner to extend the Hammers’ run to four games without a win.

Tottenham Hotspur:

West Ham United became the first team to triumph at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, when Michail Antonio’s second half goal settled the inaugural derby clash at their new home in the Hammers’ favour. The Hammers were magnificent, defending with real heart and providing a threat on the break to put a dent in the hosts’ top four charge. Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena were colossal at the back, repelling everything that came their way, while Felipe Anderson and Antonio’s speed out wide kept Tottenham honest. Antonio’s strike was one of real quality too, as he took the ball down on his chest before lashing high into the net, to give his team three points that the 3,000 travelling fans would celebrate wildly.

Southampton:

Forster, Stephens, Long, Ings (Redmond), Elyounoussi, Armstrong (Ward-Prowse), Lemina (Romeu), Bertrand, Hojbjerg, Bednarek, Valery

West Ham United signed off at London Stadium for the season in style, beating Southampton with a dominant display. Marko Arnautovic scored his first goals since January with a double either side of the break - taking his tally for the campaign to ten in the process - before Ryan Fredericks’ first-ever Premier League goal made it 3-0.

West Ham United rounded off the 2018-19 season with their biggest win of the campaign, as they hit four past FA Cup finalists Watford at Vicarage Road. The Hammers moved 2-0 up before the break, through goals from skipper Mark Noble and Manuel Lanzini. Watford gave themelves hope immediately after the restart, when Gerard Deulofeu took advantage of a defensive lapse, but after Jose Holebas was red carded, the visitors made sure of the points in the game’s final quarter. First, Marko Arnautovic scored to ensure he would finish the campaign as the Hammers’ top goalscorer for a second year in a row, before Noble set the seal on his team’s third straight win.
