Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie both hit the post before substitute Emmanuel Adebayor’s scuffed shot was directed beyond Robert Green via Faubert.

In injury time, Adebayor ran from the centre circle to finish off a delightful Nicklas Bendtner pass.

West Ham striker Carlton Cole was then sent off for a foul on Alex Song.

It was a pulsating end to a match which seemed to be heading towards a goalless draw, with West Ham’s defence and the impressive Green frustrating the visitors.

It was the introduction of the direct running of Adebayor in the 65th minute which changed the game and ensured the Gunners, now four points behind league leaders Liverpool, remain in title contention.
