Samir Nasri impressed for West Ham as they claimed a 1-0 Premier League victory over his former club Arsenal at London Stadium on Saturday.
Nasri was making his Premier League debut for the club as he continues his comeback from an 18-month ban for receiving an intravenous treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in December 2016, contravening World Anti-Doping Agency rules.
And the former France international was a key figure for West Ham, setting up Declan Rice for the winner early in the second half.
Marko Arnautovic - linked with a move to China - waved to fans after being replaced in the second half, while Arsenal struggled to truly test goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in a poor showing.
Mark Noble failed to get enough purchase on a left-footed strike from the edge of the box as West Ham threatened to take an early lead but it was Arsenal who forced the first real save of the match – Fabianski providing the block after Alexandre Lacazette had exposed a hole in the Hammers' defence.
Sead Kolasinac chose to cut the ball back for Lacazette when a shot would have been the better option after the ball broke for him down the left after 23 minutes, while Nasri probably should have followed the Bosnian's example when he drilled into the side-netting soon after.
Nasri then teed up Felipe Anderson to fizz a low strike wide, before Matteo Guendouzi arrowed a strike just past the post from distance with Fabianski at full stretch and Declan Rice headed just off target in the closing stages of an even first half.
West Ham made the breakthrough three minutes into the second half, when a weak clearing header from Laurent Koscielny fell to former Arsenal colleague Nasri, who laid off the ball for Rice fire home from just inside the box.
Arsenal improved following the introduction of Aaron Ramsey - who is said to have agreed a deal with Juventus this week - after 59 minutes but failed to make their chances count, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Iwobi missing two opportunities of note.
The Gunners had the ball in the back of the net in stoppage time, but Koscielny's header was ruled out for offside against Lucas Torreira, who crossed the ball, as West Ham held on for a first home win against the Gunners since 2006.
Goal! Declan Rice gives West Ham the lead! Sami Nasri with the assist!
Chance! Up the other end, Mattéo Guendouzi thumps a shot past the post!
Chance! Felipe Anderson drills the ball just wide for the Hammers!
Chance! Alexandre Lacazette blazes over from a tight angle!
Peep! We are underway at the London Stadium!
Jose Mourinho will be with us in the studio next weekend! Which is quite exciting!
Just under 30 minutes from kick-off at the London stadium, and Carrie Brown is at it again! This time chatting to a West Ham fan who makes funny football songs online! Including a song about Declan Rice, which is... nice!
Now for Arsenal! They are unchanged from the side that beat Fulham 4-1! Juventus bound Aaron Ramsey is on the bench, whilst no place in the match-day squad for Mesut Ozil he is still recovering from injury.

Carrie Brown has been busy today, ahead of the big game! Sami Nasri is the next player up for debate. The former Arsenal man could turn out for West Ham today, I wonder what reaction he will get?!
Plenty of talk this weekend that West Ham have recieved a big offer from China for striker Marko Arnautović, Carrie Brown has her say on the issue!
Good Afternoon welcome to the Live Updates of West Ham & Arsenal. Join me for all the latest updates from the London Stadium, including team news, Live Match commentary, and the goals as they go in! Both side have been mixed in the last few games in the Premier League, with West Ham without a victory in their last two league games losing away 2-0 to Burnley & drawing 2-2 at home to Brighton. As for Arsenal, they were taught a lesson as they lost 5-1 to league leaders Liverpool over the festive period, before promptly defeating a struggling Fulham side 4-1. It will be interesting how both coaches pick their side after resting many players for the FA Cup third round.
