Key events

Half time: Arsenal 0-1 West Ham

45+6 mins: And that’s the last meaningful action of the first half. The league leaders have some work to do.

Arsenal don’t have a penalty after all!

45+5 mins: That’s exemplary VAR use. Cresswell did not handle the ball, and there will be no penalty.

Replays suggest there was no handball, and this decision is going to be reversed. The referee has been told to have a look at the replays.

Arsenal have a penalty now!

The cross is headed away, worked back to Odegaard and his shot hits a defender. He immediately asks for a penalty and after a few seconds’ though, Michael Oliver points to the spot.

45+3 mins: About 30 seconds of the first half to go, and Arsenal have a corner.

45+1 mins: There will be three minutes of first-half stoppage time.

45 minutes: Coufal slides in, eyes on the ball, and wins it clearly. But he then slides through into Martinelli, landing his studs on Arsenal’s players foot, and so gets booked.

42 minutes: An absolutely magical first touch from Nketiah, but Kehrer comes across to take the ball away.

42 minutes: Odegaard has been so good. When he’s on his game it’s a pleasure to watch him work in tight spaces. He’s just been on a different level from his teammates so far tonight.

40 minutes: “Get out!” protests Peter Oh.

38 minutes: Nice work on the right gives White a good crossing opportunity, but it does not bring a good cross.

34 minutes: A glorious opportunity for Nketiah to set up Saka, but his pass is poor and the chance is lost. “This all reminds me of when Wenger used to say that Bendtner and Chamakh could lead the line and we could compete for trophies,” David Penney says of Arsenal’s forward. “Hope we’re signing someone good in the next 30 days.”

33 minutes: Arsenal attack repeatedly down the left, but every time they try to move the ball into the middle someone in a black shirt kicks it away again.

30 minutes: West Ham are sitting just on the right side of the line between outrageous good fortune and perfect execution of a game plan.

GOAL! Arsenal 0-1 West Ham (Benrahma, 27 mins)

Benrahma hits it down the middle, as Ramsdale dives out of the way!

26 minutes: The VAR has confirmed the penalty, and Benrahma has grabbed the ball.

Penalty to West Ham!

24 minutes: And now they’ve won themselves a penalty! Antonio wins a long ball down the right and plays it infield to Bowen, who touches past Saliba and goes down! There is just the smallest contact, but at full sprint possibly enough to bring him down (although he went on a couple of paces first).

24 minutes: This has been fun so far. Arsenal are dominating, and really look a fair bit better than their opponents, but West Ham still have a threat on the counter.

21 minutes: White then heads the corner away, and Benrahma’s shot is straight at Ramsdale. He immediately throws the ball out and starts a promising break, but Nketiah shoots into Coufal.

19 minutes: West Ham have not done a lot of attacking, but they have just won a corner, Ben White headed Bowen’s cross behind.

15 minutes: Odegaard dances across the edge of the West Ham penalty area, but his attempted pass to Martinelli is cut out.

13 minutes: This time Odegaard, who’s pulling all the strings here, does find Xhaka, but his right-footed 20-yarder is feeble.

10 minutes: Odegaard plays a near-great pass through to Xhaka, which runs through to the keeper.

8 minutes: A lovely run down the right from Martinelli ends with Bowen bringing him down. I thought he got the ball and kicked it into Martinelli, but that only made it look like Martinelli had kicked it. He gets a yellow card for his troubles.

7 minutes: “Was that 1987 loss to Nottingham Forest?” asks Jonathan Wood of Arsenal’s last home defeat on Boxing Day. It was indeed. “I was at that game – first trip to see Forest at Highbury. We were 1-0 up with less than five minutes to go, having not won at Highbury for years, when Arsenal won a penalty. Kenny Samson – who was disputing the left back position for England with Stuart Pearce – missed. A minute later, Forest went down the other end and won a penalty themselves. Up stepped Pearce in front of the North Bank and showed Samson how to do it. 2-0. Bedlam in the Forest end.”

5 minutes: Arsenal have a goal disallowed! The ball is played through to Nketiah, who backheels it to Saka, who smashes it in at the near post. When the pass was played both Nketiah and Saka were onside but as it skidded through it clipped Saka’s heel, and at that point Nketiah was offside.

3 minutes: Apparently Arsene Wenger is in the crowd today, visiting the Emirates for the first time since he left the club in 2018, having more recently dedicated himself to saying ridiculous things that are convenient for Fifa.

1 minute: Peeeep! West Ham got the game started.

Before kick-off, a minute’s applause for George Cohen.

Out come the players! It’s been a long and hectic day of top-flight football, now it’s time to see if the league leaders are feeling festive.

Prime’s big pre-match interview was with Oleksandr Zinchenko, and their panel in the stadium now feel obliged to have a long chat about him. Which has been fine, had he only been in the starting XI.

On Twitter, noted rumormonger Fabrizio Romano reports that Arsenal have submitted a bid of an initial €40m, rising to €60m, for Shakhtar Donetsk’s 21-year-old Ukrainian winger Mykhaylo Mudryk. Apparently the player is keen, but his club wants lots more cash.

Some pre-match readingin the shape of Ben Fisher’s report on Aston Villa 1-3 Liverpool:

Aaron Cresswell has a chat. “I think the break’s come at a good time for us. The lads have been working hard, so it’s up to us now to put things right. We haven’t had a great start to the season. We’re not scoring enough goals and we could do better at conceding them. But today’s a big opportunity to get back to it. Arsenal have been fantastic all season, we know it’s going to be a tough game but it’s up to us to get three points today.”

Hello world!

What an awfully-timed World Cup that was for Arsenal. Top of the table, with points dropped in only one of their last nine league games, they were absolutely flying when the pause button was pressed in early November. Now we wait to discover whether that momentum has survived the last six weeks. For all their quality (and the fact that the last time they lost at home on Boxing Day was so long ago that one of their centre-backs that day is now 64 (1987 and David O’Leary, since you ask), a run the Hammers have tried twice and failed to finish) this might not be a bad time to play them. There has only been one goalless draw between these teams since then, promisingly. West Ham started the season against Manchester City, and now have to restart it against Arsenal, which is a bit rum. I have a feeling in my bones that this game might be a good one, but then I am an incorrigible optimist. Welcome!

The teams

Team news is in, and the starting line-ups are as follows:

Arsenal: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.
