Arsenal v West Ham Utd: half time report


Filed: Wednesday, 23rd January 2013
By: Staff Writer


The teams go in level at the half time break in tonight's big London derby after a goal apiece in the opening 45 minutes.

West Ham - who rested key players such as Matt Jarvis, Joe Cole and Mo Diame - opened the scoring through Jack Collison, who made his Irons debut on this ground on New Years Day 2008.

The Welsh international blasted United into the lead on 18 minutes when a corner was half-cleared to the midfielder, who lay in wait on the edge of the box before volleying it straight into the back of the net.

However West Ham's lead was to last for just four minutes when Lucas Podolski equalised with a thunderous drive from the edge of the box.

Having spent the majority of the opening 45 minutes in their own West Ham were limited to sporadic attacks but threatened to add a second goal on a number of occasions - Ricardo Vaz Te and Carlton Cole, who saw one effort bundled off the line by Aaron Ramsey going closest.

Jussi Jaaskelainen, who had very little to do overall was forced into one tremedous save in the final minute of the half when Cazorla's goal-bound free kick was tipped wide by the veteran stopper.

We'll have more for you at the final whistle.

West Ham Utd: Jaaskelainen, Demel, O'Brien, Reid, Tomkins, Noble, Taylor, Nolan, Collison, Vaz Te, C.Cole.

Subs: Henderson, Potts, Diarra, Diame, O'Neil, J.Cole, Jarvis.

Arsenal: Szczesney, Sagna, Gibbs, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski, Giroud.

Subs: Mannone, Koscielny, Andre Santos, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arshavin, Jenkinson, Frimpong.
