That's all for today's live coverage. Thanks for joining!  
This victory lifts Arsenal into ninth place for now, five points adrift of Chelsea in fourth ahead of their rearranged trip to Manchester City on Wednesday. West Ham remain level on points with 18th-placed Bournemouth, meanwhile, with Wolves up next at the London Stadium in eight days' time.
Arsenal beat West Ham 1-0 at Emirates Stadium to make it three Premier League wins in a row. The visitors edged a first half that saw both teams hit the frame of the goal, but Arteta's men - who had a couple of penalty appeals rejected - found a way through 12 minutes from time, with Lacazette's goal being awarded by VAR after it was initially ruled out for offside.
90' + 5' Wets Ham win a free-kick around 40 yards out. Snodgrass whips it into the box and an Arsenal head gets to it first. That should be that!
90' + 4' Bellerin does brilliantly to slide in and win the ball before Felipe Anderson can control Snodgrass' pass. West Ham are the side asking all of the questions with a minute of added time to go.
M. Antonio
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Antonio catches Ceballos from behind and is shown a yellow card late on.
90' + 2' Lacazette is off target with his effort as Arsenal attempt to seal the win. West Ham are not giving up and they still have three minutes to create one final chance.
R. Snodgrass
J. Bowen
90' Snodgrass is thrown on in place of Bowen as Moyes rolls the dice for one final time.
90' Five minutes have been added on at the end of the game at Emirates Stadium.
M. Özil
89' Bellerin is on for Ozil in the last of Arsenal's changes. Arteta is going defensive for the final throes.
88' Leno gathers the ball to take some of the growing pressure off his side. Arteta is readying another change...
Felipe Anderson
Pablo Fornals
87' Felipe Anderson replaces Fornals for the closing stages. West Ham are running out of time to find an equaliser.
85' Ngakia sends a cross into the middle and Haller nearly gets on the end of it. He is sandwiched by two Arsenal defenders and cannot quite make the contact he would have liked.
83' NEARLY AN INSTANT RESPONSE! Bowen plays a cute little pass in behind and Haller, having got away from David Luiz, slides in to test Leno with a first-time shot from five yards out. That has to go down as a decent opportunity for West Ham.
T. Souček
M. Noble
81' Noble is off and Soucek on as West Ham chase a leveller.
79' Arsenal have the lead with 10 minutes to go. Now all they have to do is see it through!
A. Lacazette
78' GOAL GIVEN BY VAR!!! ARSENAL 1-0 WEST HAM!!! Lacazette's goal was initially ruled out for offside, but a VAR check shows Ozil was just about onside when cushioning the ball into his team-mate's path to convert.
M. Özil
78' Ozil watched Aubameyang's deflected shot all the way and had the presence of mind to tee up Lacazette alongside him, rather than attempt to score himself.
77' ARSENAL GOAL DISALLOWED! Aubameyang's shot loops into the air and Ozil calmly nods it down for Lacazette to convert from inside the six-yard box. However, Arsenal's celebrations are cut short by the offside flag. VAR is going to double-check...
76' SHOT! Haller slips inside the box at the worst possible moment but the ball still finds its way to Fornals. He strikes his shot into the ground and Leno is able to pluck it out of the air.
75' David Luiz backs into Antonio and the West Ham attacker appears to have hurt his ribs. The home fans are annoyed as play temporarily comes to a halt, but we are now back up and running.
73' Xhaka is furious with referee Martin Atkinson as he is penalised for a foul on Noble, despite seemingly winning the ball.
72' David Luiz is given the green light to continue after that collision with his own goalkeeper.
71' Ozil barges into Noble and West Ham have a free-kick in shooting range. The set-piece is sent towards the edge of the six-yard box, where it is successfully cleared. Leno takes out David Luiz in the process and there is now a stoppage in play.
R. Nelson
N. Pépé
69' Nelson is on for Pepe as Arteta makes his second change of the so-far goalless contest.
67' CHANCE! West Ham create a promising opportunity of their own as Bowen bursts through, only to shoot straight at Leno at the end of it. Leno fumbles but Arsenal have players back to clear.
66' ANOTHER PENALTY SHOUT! Aubameyang knocks the ball past Ngakia and picks out Lacazette with a cross. Lacazette's volley is nicely struck, but it hits Cresswell before it can trouble Fabianski. Lacazette claims he was fouled by Diop but the VAR officials clearly disagree.
64' Haller heads the ball on and Ogbonna slips just as he is about to shoot. Arsenal are living dangerously here in what is turning out to be a gripping contest - this one could still go either way.
S. Papastathopoulos
Yellow Card
63' Sokratis bundles into Antonio to earn Arsenal's first yellow card of the match.
61' West Ham manager David Moyes has not won any of his 15 away Premier League games against Arsenal (D4 L11). No manager in Premier League history has ever managed more away games against an opponent without winning - the others with 15 and no wins are Moyes himself against Chelsea and Liverpool, and Harry Redknapp against Manchester United.
A. Lacazette
E. Nketiah
59' Nketiah has found himself in some promising positions today, without being able to put the ball away. The youngster is replaced by Lacazette with an hour played.
59' Arteta has seen enough - Lacazette has been stripped down ready to come on.
58' GREAT SAVE! Haller flicks on Cresswell's left-sided cross and Antonio adjusts his body in time to get away a shot. Leno reacts brilliantly to make a point-blank save.
56' West Ham get the ball forward for pretty much the first time this half, but the attack fizzles out without anything to show for it. Up the other end, Fabianski beats Nketiah to a throughball.
54' Diop did well to get to the loose ball before Nketiah could pounce from that previous Arsenal chance.
53' NKETIAH DENIED! Arsenal finally create something from open play. Saka drifts inside from the left and plays the ball through for Nketiah, whose first-time shot is saved by the legs of Fabianski.
51' Another deep pass has too much pace on it for Pepe and the winger is unable to keep it in play. West Ham boss Moyes will happily accept another 50 minutes of this.
49' Pepe's left-footed cross from the right-hand side is just out of Aubameyang's reach. Arsenal are trying to build some momentum in the early stages of the second half.
48' Saka tries to make something happen by drifting past a couple of opponents. He is reluctant to cross and instead lays it off to Xhaka, who overhits his pass towards the back post.
46' RESTART! Arsenal get us back under way at Emirates Stadium. Neither side made any changes at the interval, so it is as you were.
Despite having nearly 79 per cent of the ball, Arsenal are arguably fortunate to not be a goal behind at the interval. Arteta will not be pleased with his side's performance so far and could well turn to someone like Lacazette or Martinelli at the break. As for opposite number Moyes, he has Lanzini, Snodgrass and Felipe Anderson among his attacking substitutes.
Arsenal and West Ham go into half-time level at 0-0 following an entertaining opening 45 minutes. Bowen struck the post with 93 seconds played and Antonio, having earlier fluffed his lines from a one-on-one, fired wide from a glorious position. The hosts also hit the frame of the goal through Sokratis, while Nketiah had a penalty shout rejected late in the half.
45' + 1' PENALTY APPEAL! Ngakia appears to send Nketiah crashing to the floor inside the box, but the referee Martin Atkinson waves away the strong appeals - a decision that is upheld following a VAR check.
45' One minute has been added on at the end of the first half at Emirates Stadium.
44' Cresswell hooks the ball back into the middle and Luiz takes a risk by leaning in to help it behind with his shoulder.
43' That is now two big opportunities missed by West Ham in this first half, on top of hitting the post. Arsenal boss Arteta will know that a lot more is needed from his side in the second half.
42' WHAT A SITTER! Diop heads down a corner and Antonio somehow fires wide on the turn from no more than four yards out. He has to score!
41' West Ham remind Arsenal that they are not here to sit back on a point as Antonio swings in a dangerous cross from the left. David Luiz takes no risks by heading behind.
40' Arsenal get the ball forward quickly. Pepe has three players around him yet still manages to squeeze the ball through for Nketiah, whose first-time shot is saved by Fabianski. However, the young striker was offside and the goal would not have stood.
38' Pepe produces brilliant trickery to get away from Ogbonna, but Rice slides in to halt the winger's run before he can shoot. The subsequent corner comes to little.
36' Aubameyang's clipped pass has a little too much on it for Nketiah as Fabianski again claims the ball.
35' Ozil's inswinging corner is plucked out of the air by Fabianski inside the six-yard box. Arsenal come forward again but West Ham are forming a compact shape in their own half.
33' The home fans are urging their side on. Arsenal have had nearly 78 per cent of the ball, but it has been a pretty balanced match in terms of chances at either end.
31' SHOT! Fornals' tame shot from outside the box is aimed too close to Leno. West Ham are enjoying a sustained spell of pressure.
30' Antonio is given space to run into down the left. He takes it past Sokratis but Ceballos gets across to help out his team-mate, albeit at the expense of a corner.
28' Pepe is starting to get involved down the right. He hangs up a cross towards Nketiah but his team-mate is unable to get on the end of it as West Ham clear.
27' Arsenal are in control of the game and are creating the odd opening. Moyes will not be too concerned, though, given his side also hit the post early on and squandered an even better chance soon after.
25' Sokratis should probably have scored with that header from the edge of the six-yard box. Both sides have now hit the frame of the goal in the opening half an hour.
24' Arsenal have won none of their last four home London derbies in the Premier League (D2 L2), losing the most recent one against Chelsea. They have not lost back-to-back home derbies since February 2006, when their defeats were against Chelsea and West Ham.
22' OFF THE BAR! Ceballos' teasing cross from the right is flicked on by the head of Ngakia before Aubameyang can get on the end of it. The corner is not properly dealt with by West Ham and Sokratis turns Aubameyang's cross onto the crossbar with his head.
20' Haller is played through by Noble but Leno gets a touch to the ball before the striker can get a shot away. The referee Martin Atkinson waves away the weak penalty appeals as Noble helps the corner onto the roof of the net.
18' David Luiz does well to win an aerial ball before Fornals can pounce. Arsenal are still the side on top, though West Ham are threatening on the counter.
16' West Ham clear their lines after Arsenal win a corner, but this has been a positive spell for the home side. It has been end-to-end stuff at Emirates Stadium so far.
14' BLOCKED! Ogbonna can only half-clear a cross and Ozil has a chance to shoot from 10 yards. The ball is heading for the target but Diop puts his body in the way to block it.
12' BIG CHANCE! Antonio is played in down the right. He has just Leno to beat but decides to square to Haller alongside him, only to play the pass behind his team-mate.
11' Saka's cross from the left is headed clear before Nketiah can get on the end of it a few yards out.
10' David Luiz cuts out Fornals' attempted throughball. Arsenal are seeing a lot more of the ball than West Ham, but the visitors have been more threatening early on.
Pablo Fornals
Yellow Card
9' Fornals is cautioned for a foul on Arsenal winger Pepe.
8' Ceballos shifts the ball to Xhaka and the Switzerland international thumps a long-range shot into the stand behind the goal. Poor effort!
7' Former Arsenal goalkeeper Fabianski calmly collects the ball and plays it short as West Ham build another attack. The visitors look full of confidence following last week's win over Southampton.
5' It has been a sloppy start from Arsenal, with Xhaka giving the ball straight to Bowen for that early chance and Leno hardly covering himself in glory, even if he did just about keep out the effort. Arteta's men need to wake up.
3' OFF THE POST! Almost the dream start for West Ham as Bowen hits the frame of the goal. Xhaka's clearance is straight at the January signing, who carries the ball forward and unleashes a shot from 20 yards. Leno gets a touch to help it onto the post and behind for a corner.
1' KICK-OFF! West Ham, aiming to make it back-to-back wins to move clear of the relegation zone, get us up and running in London.
The teams are coming out onto the pitch at Emirates Stadium, with kick-off just moments away.
Arsenal have won eight of their last nine home Premier League games against West Ham, losing the other game in that sequence 2-1 on the opening day of the 2015-16 campaign. Indeed, today's visitors have won just two of their last 23 league matches with Arsenal since a three-game winning streak between February 2006 and April 2007.
West Ham produced their best all-round display in a long time to overcome Southampton last weekend, so it is perhaps unsurprising that Moyes sticks with the same XI for this clash. Bowen, Haller and Antonio were all on target seven days ago and retain their places here, with Fornals completing the front four.
It has been just under two weeks since Arsenal's most recent Premier League outing, a 3-2 win over Everton here. Arteta has made three changes to his starting line-up from that one as Sokratis, Saka and Premier League debutant Mari all come into the backline. Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac miss out on the squad through injury, while Bellerin is among the subs.
Subs: Tomas Soucek, Felipe Anderson, Robert Snodgrass, Fabian Balbuena, Pablo Zabaleta, Manuel Lanzini, Darren Randolph.
WEST HAM XI (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Jeremy Ngakia, Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Declan Rice, Mark Noble (c); Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Michail Antonio; Sebastien Haller.
Subs: Gabriel Martinelli, Matteo Guendouzi, Alexandre Lacazette, Emiliano Martinez, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Hector Bellerin.
ARSENAL XI (4-2-3-1): Bernd Leno; Sokratis, David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Bukayo Saka; Dani Ceballos, Granit Xhaka; Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (c); Eddie Nketiah.
West Ham ended a seven-game winless league run with a much-needed 3-1 victory at home to Southampton last weekend. David Moyes' side remain in serious relegation trouble, however, as they sit level on points with 18th-placed Bournemouth with 10 games of the season to go.
After being knocked out of the Europa League by Olympiacos and overcoming Portsmouth for a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, Arsenal turn focus back to the Premier League with this visit of London rivals West Ham. Mikel Arteta's men have won back-to-back top-flight matches but are down in 10th, eight points adrift of the top four with a game in hand to play.
