The two teams entered the game tentatively, but Arsenal surprisingly took the lead after 39 minutes. From a corner by Bukayo Saka on the left, Holding headed high to score his first goal of the season. This goal made the match much more interesting, when West Ham pushed the team up to find an equalizer.

The hosts created successive chances for the next five minutes, and in the end Arsenal’s defense could not stand. In the 45th minute, Vladimir Coufal received the ball on the right, then turned it inside for Bowen. After a controlled beat, the England striker volleyed past the Arsenal defender, sending the ball into an angle beyond the reach of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

Both teams had to start over in the second half, and Arsenal took advantage of the better opportunity. 54 minutes, also from a corner of Saka, the ball fell into the position of Gabriel Martinelli. The Brazilian striker hung the ball in the second column for Magalhaes to head without being marked, beating former Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

The remaining minutes Arsenal gave the ball to the host, but West Ham does not create dangerous opportunities. Moyes also has bigger sights on the Europa League semi-final second leg at Frankfurt. Because if they win the Europa League, West Ham will win a place in the Champions League next season.

And Tottenham, Arsenal and maybe even Chelsea continue to race into the Top 4, as attractive as the championship battle. These three teams have four matches left, and have 61, 63 and 66 points, respectively. The great battle between Tottenham and Arsenal on the evening of May 12 will have a great impact on this race. But in the immediate future, teachers and students Mikel Arteta will return to Emirates in round 36 Leeds on May 8.
