For the Hammers, a win would guarantee them a spot in the top four for another week, with Arsenal currently one point behind them, but they have not won in their last three games, since their 3-2 win over Liverpool.

Currently, the score is locked at 0-0, with few clear-cut chances having presented themselves to either side.

Applause breaks out on the sixth minute

In the sixth minute of the game, applause could be heard from both sides, as local rivalries were set aside for a deeper reason.

The applause was to pay respects to, and raise awareness about, the murder of six-year-old Arthur Labinjo-Hughes, who was tortured and killed by his parents, Emma Tustin and Thomas Hughes, who received 29 and 21 years in prison respectively.

As per BBC News:

Arthur died of a head injury inflicted by Tustin on 16 June.
