Swansea's Clement eager to capitalise on West Ham's woes

Job done, Arsenal made a flurry of substitutions and, with just eight minutes remaining, two of the fresh faces combined as Alex Oxlade Chamberlain tore into the heart of the Hammers penalty box before laying off to Giroud who curled a precision 15-yarder around Randolph and into the far corner to round off a miserable night for anxious West Ham.

The Germany worldwide had been subjected to heavy criticism from fans and earlier in the week captain Per Mertesacker mistakenly made a donation to a "Mesut Ozil missing persons fund" whilst signing autographs.

Bilic - who has received the dreaded vote of confidence during a season in marked contrast to last one where they qualified for Europe - called on his players to show courage and leadership.

"He is focused. I know him quite well", said Wenger reflecting on Ozil's struggles that followed the 10-2 aggregate defeat by Bayern on March 7.

"As for myself, I think I've done okay since I came in, but we've still lost both games".

"Of course (he deserves credit)".

"We live in world of extremes".

A section of frustrated supporters have voiced their opinion on Wenger's future, calling for change.

Palace were defeated on Wednesday but have won four of their last five games in the league.

"I have had those kinds of games before and some of the players have had those kinds of games", he said.

"They were thinking they were going to be in Europe so they brought in players that would supplement the squad who had played European football".

The Germany global additionally registered an assist, which makes it just the next top flight match where he's scored and set up a teammate this season - the other being the reverse fixture against West Ham, which the Gunners won 5-1 in December.

"It is the key point for me to get that confidence back before Saturday", Bilic said. We need to find the spots where is really unsafe, maybe sometimes play a long ball that Alexis can run on to, rather than giving him a pass to feet, where he has to turn and face three or four of the opposition.

Bilic continued to stress how essential three points is at the London Stadium this coming weekend, as the Hammers are now also on a seven-match winless run. We need to get the three points, simple as. "It's not being negative, it's being realistic".

Winger Michail Antonio, who had to be replaced at half-time at the Emirates due to a sickness bug, should also be fit.
