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.

19_01_29 Wolves v. WHU

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.

19_02_09 Crystal Palace v. WHU 19_02_22 WHU v. Fulham 19_03_02 WHU v. Newcastle United 19_03_09 Cardiff City v. WHU

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.
