West Ham go fourth!

West Ham are fourth in the table after a 0-0 draw with an injury-wracked, but still strong, Arsenal side overnight.

The East London club were, by many accounts, the better side, but chances were at a premium and the Hammers might be slightly disappointed not to leave with an extra two points after two penalty claims were denied and substitute Bobby Zamora headed wide near the full-time whistle.

Teddy Sheringham sent a free-kick just wide in the first half and Benayoun saw his shot saved after the break, but most shots were limited to outside the area for both teams and the tie ended scoreless.

Alan Pardew called it a "game of defences" and praised the work done by the West Ham back four.
