West Ham United continued their new found consistent organization and impervious nature, securing a scoreless draw against Arsenal at the London Stadium Wednesday. evening.

Credit must be given to David Moyes, as the Hammers gave Gunners fans and Arsene Wenger another bitter, frustrating performance that they have endure all to often in modern times. After Arsenal started the game expectedly with the most possession, West Ham seemed like they got the perfect counter attack, only for Marko Arnautovic’s header to be ruled offside in the 14th minute after a great cross from the ever improving Arthur Masuaku.

The Gunners then had the best chance later in the half, only for Alex Iwobi to hit the right side post of Adrian. The second half would mostly be the Gunners controlling possession, only for West Ham to continue to be resolute and dogged.

And the Hammers were almost rewarded for their latest great defensive effort, when Laurent Koscielny’s disastrous pass lead eventually to Javier Hernandez rattling the crossbar in the 90 minute, centimeters away from going under the bar and in.

That ends the Hammers murderous three game run against elite teams. But they know every game in the Premier League can be tough. And they will make a journey to Stoke City on Saturday, when Marko Arnautovic is in store for quite the hostile response from his former fans.
