Arsenal beats West Ham 2-0

Arsenal beats West Ham 2-0

An injury time goal from Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor sealed a 2-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.
Adebayor came on as a late substitute at Upton Park and immediately made an impact. In the 75th minute, the Togo international fired a shot that appeared to be going wide until West Ham right-back Julien Faubert poked the ball past his own goalkeeper for an own goal.
Adebayor nearly made it 2-0 in the 80th but West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green parried the shot and the striker put the rebound over the bar. But Adebayor got his goal in injury time, collecting a superb pass from Nicklas Bendtner, rounding Green who had come off his line, and then placing a right-footed shot into the goal from about 18 yards.
Arsenal are in fourth place with 19 points. Hull are in third as it continued its dream start to its first season in the Premier League, beating West Brom 3-0 on Saturday.
It was West Ham's third consecutive loss and Gianfranco Zola's fifth league match in charge since taking over from Alan Curbishley.
