West Ham vs Arsenal: Holding, Gabriel score as Gunners retake 4th spot from Spurs

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Arsenal kept their top-four hopes alive after a hard-fought 2-1 win against West Ham on Sunday, May 1, at the London stadium.

The Gunners took the lead in the 38th minute as Rob Holding rose highest to nod home a Bukayo Saka's corner. It was his first Premier League goal.

But the Hammers responded just before the break as Jarrod Bowen produced a smart finish past Aaron Ramsdale from Vladimir Coufal's cutback in the 45th minute.

However, it was a day for Arsenal to rely on their defenders as Gabriel restored parity nine minutes into the second half.
