Marko Arnautovic scored an early goal and the defense was poised as West Ham United edged Chelsea, 1-0, for three massive points.
By far, the best day of the season for the Hammers. They got exactly what they needed, which was an early advantage, coming in the sixth minute, On the break, Arnautovic played a 1-2 with Manuel Lazini and the former slipped into the box to slot home. Chelsea dominated the stat sheet, but an organized defense combined with poor finishing from the Blues left Adrian virtually untested. With the momentum of the crowd, the Hammers were able to let the lone goal stand and grab the points. The win still leaves them on the wrong side of the relegation zone, but today's result certainly shed a positive light on the rest of their season. Dec 9 - 9:34 AM

Marko Arnautovic has been given the all clear ahead of Friday's match with Leicester City after suffering a wrist injury during last weekend's defeat at Watford.

Arnautovic was substituted in the second half of last weekend's match with Watford, but manager David Moyes has revealed the knock was not as serious as initially feared and the No.7 will be fit to face the Foxes. "It was badly swollen – it was a bit like a boxer’s hand when we saw it the next day," said Moyes. "But he’s fine. He has trained with a good plaster on it. He’s okay." Andre Ayew, who missed Moyes's first match due to illness, will also be available for Friday's match. With Chicharito and Michail Antonio both ruled out, Arnautovic and Ayew could make the starting XI. Andy Carroll, who started against Watford, is another option upfront, while Diafra Sakho could see minutes off the bench.

David Moyes is confident of having Marko Arnautovic available for Friday after tests confirm the winger did not break his thumb at Watford.

The Austria international, who was having one of his more influential games since signing for the Claret and Blues, was reluctantly replaced in the 74th minute after he was accidentally trodden on by defender Marvin Zeegelaar. Arnautovic was sent for an x-ray, but despite heavy swelling, the results were positive and there was no fracture. The new West Ham boss is also hopeful of having Andre Ayew back in the match-day squad after he missed out at Vicarage Road due to illness. Meanwhile, James Collins could feature for the first time since September having recovered from an ankle ligament injury. A decision on Michail Antonio will be made closer to kick-off as he struggles to overcome badly bruised ribs and a niggling hamstring complaint. Jose Fonte [foot] and Sam Byram [thigh] are definitely out while the game is expected to come too soon for Javier Hernandez.

Missed chances, poor defending and an injury to a key player summed up a forgettable debut for David Moyes as West Ham United fell to Watford, 0-2.

Moyes' return to the Premier League went wrong in every possible way. They gave up an early goal, putting themselves in a pressurized situation which they could not escape from. They had two chances to level the match just before halftime, but shots by Cheikhou Kouyate and Marko Arnautovic were stopped by the Watford keeper. The defense then allowed the Hornets an easy second goal just after the hour mark. Moments later, Arnautovic landed awkwardly, appearing to have injured his wrist, and immediately exited the game. With a quarter hour left, Manuel Lanzini nearly pulled one back, but his shot was cleared off the line. Moyes will go back to the drawing board as West Ham stay home this Friday to host Leicester.

West Ham secured their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup by defeating League One side Bolton 3-0 at the London Stadium on Tuesday.

Slaven Bilic made 10 changes to his side who drew 0-0 with West Brom at the weekend, handing Montenegro international Sead Haksabanovic his debut and Marko Arnautovic his first start since being sent off against Southampton in late August. Signed from Stoke City for £25m this summer, Arnautovic put in his best effort as a Hammer, providing a free-kick for Angelo Ogbonna's powerful header to opening the score and set up Diafra Sahka in the 31st minute. The second half saw the Hammers struggle to find chances until Arthur Masuaku blasted a thunderous strike into the top corner from 25 yards in stoppage time. The cup win also marked the return of captain Mark Noble, who missed the last two league matches with a hamstring injury, and winger Nathan Holland's first-team debut off the bench.

Marko Arnautovic has completed his three-match domestic ban following his red card in and will return to the matchday squad for Saturday's match at West Brom

Manager Slaven Bilic, speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's trip, confirmed the Austria international will be in the squad to face the Baggies. With Manuel Lanzini and Mark Noble both unavailable for selection, the return of Arnautovic is a timely boost for the Hammers attack. However, it's unclear whether or not he will return to the starting XI. Arnautovic did start both matches on the left-wing prior to his suspension, but Bilic may decide to name the same side that beat Huddersfield Town. Unless Bilic elects to change the formation, fantasy managers should be prepared to see Arnautovic start from the bench.

Marko Arnautovic issued an apology to West Ham fans on his Instagram page after he was sent off in the Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Southampton.

The Hammers were forced to play the majority of Saturday's defeat with 10 men after Arnautovic was shown a straight red card for a violent elbow on Jack Stephens in the 33rd minute at the St. Mary's Stadium. West Ham fought back after the attacker's dismissal as Javier Hernandez scored twice to bring Slaven Bilic's side back from a 2-0 deficit, but the spirited comeback was undone by a Charlie Austin spot-kick in the 93rd minute. While Arnautovic protested his innocence over the foul during the match, the 28-year-old posted an apology on social media after the fixture: "I want to apologise to all the West Ham fans. Just want to let you know I didn't want to let my team down and you fans. So please, sorry. A big apology to all of you." The club record signing will now serve a three-match ban before being eligible to return September 23rd against Tottenham.

Marko Arnuatovic was removed from the second half of Friday's 3-0 pre-season defeat to Manchester City, however, manager Slaven Bilic revealed the issue was nothing more than cramp.

While West Ham make a number of defensive lapses as they suffered defeat in their final pre-season friendly on Friday, the manager provided a positive update on Arnautovic after the match. Bilic confirmed the 28-year-old Austria international was replaced midway through the second period due to a cramp, rather than an injury, thus avoiding another blow to the first-team ranks. "He’s not bad, because it was just like a cramp so it doesn’t look too bad," he revealed. "From that point of view it was good because no new players got injured in the game, so it was one more training for them before the season. The situation with Marko is basically nothing." The news means the former Stoke City man should be fit to face Manchester United when the Hammers open their Premier League campaign on August 13.

Marko Arnautovic scored his first West Ham goal in a 2-2 friendly draw with Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Arnautovic, who signed from Stoke City in a record £25 million deal, turned in Arthur Masuaku's deflected cross to score his first goal on his full Hammers debut. West Ham went behind on a 15th-minute header, with goalkeeper Joe Hart unable to stop the close-range finish, before Arnautovic responded 10 minutes later. It was then another debutant, striker Toni Martinez, that put the Hammers ahead after 75 minutes when the young Spaniard headed home an Andre Ayew cross. However, the match would end even with Bremen equalizing nine minutes from time to secure a 3-2 Betway Cup aggregate victory for the Bundesliga side. Said manager Slaven Bilic on Arnautovic's goal: "This was one of the reasons why we bought him and we have to help him, of course, but I’m expecting him to make the difference week-in, week-out."

West Ham officially announced a move for Stoke City winger Marko Arnautovic for a club-record £24 million fee.

The Austrian international joins on a five-year deal after the Hammers saw their third bid accepted following his transfer request and becomes the third signing of the summer after Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart. The 28-year-old recorded six goals and five assists last season after his breakout 2015/16 season where he scored 11 goals. Said Arnautovic: "Everyone knows that West Ham is a big club, with a big history and I'm happy to be a part of it now. I can't wait to get started...I can only say it is a massive club with a lot of fans. They are crazy for football and this is what I like. The club is still growing, getting better and better and that's why I'm here."

Marko Arnautovic has passed his medical ahead of his club-record move to West Ham, which is expected to be finalized on Saturday.

Sky Sports News is reporting that Arnautovic has agreed a five-year-deal, worth £26m, and will become West Ham's highest-paid player once his move is completed. Having failed with two previous bids for the winger, the Hammers were able to reach an agreement with Stoke City on their third approach, which could rise to a fee as high as £25m. Arnie, who handed in a transfer request in order to force through a move, will join Javier "Chicarito" Hernandez as the newest players to seal a move to the London Stadium. Arnautovic and Chicarito are expected to compete for spots in Slaven Bilic's starting XI, with the former likely to operate on the wing and the latter partner up front alongside Andy Carroll.

Marko Arnautovic looks to be headed to West Ham after handing in a transfer request and seeing the East London club finally meeting the Potters' valuation.

It took three bids from West Ham United but reports on indicate that Stoke City have agreed to sell Marko Arnautovic to the Hammers for somewhere north of the failed £20m second bid. Arnautovic adds to a stable of wide attackers at the London Stadium joining Michail Antonio, Robert Snodgrass, and Andre Ayew. The concern for Mark Hughes's side is that the Austrian's departure leaves them short of attacking options with Jon Walters already having departed, Xherdan Shaqiri frequently injured, Peter Crouch turning 37 in January, and Saido Berahino yet to score a Premier League goal of the Potters. That's an attack that needs a lot of work between now and the kickoff of the season.

Marko Arnautovic will be assessed after suffering a suspected knee injury during the 1-0 friendly win over Neuchatel Xamax on Monday night.

The Potters winger, who submitted a transfer request just hours before the game in Switzerland, appeared to jar his right knee as he attempted to cross the ball. Fortunately, Arnautovic was able to limp down the tunnel unaided following treatment, but he will be assessed over the next 24-48 hours. Stoke have already rejected an offer from West Ham, believed to be in the region of £15 million, but Slaven Bilic is expected to come back with an improved bid. Arnautovic [6-goals + five assists in 2016/17] has become an integral part of Mark Hughes’ side since his arrival at the Bet365 Stadium four years ago, for £2 million, from Bundesliga side Werder Bremen.

Marko Arnautovic could miss the final Premier League game of the season after leaving the Bet365 Stadium with his arm in a sling on Saturday.

There are fears that the Austria international may have fractured his right arm following a robust challenge from Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding which forced the winger off with Stoke 4-1 down. If tests confirm a break, then it is possible that Arnautovic could play in a protective cast, otherwise Mark Hughes will consider his options with Ramadan Sobhi favourite to come into the side which travels to Southampton. Arnautovic will receive little sympathy from Arsenal supporters who feel his injury is karma following an incident dating back to January 2015. The 28-year-old pushed Mathieu Debuchy mid-air during a Premier League match at the Emirates which left the Frenchman with a dislocated shoulder.

The gap between Stoke City and relegation-zoned Swansea City shrunk this afternoon, as a missed penalty by Marko Arnautovic was the defining moment in a 2-0 loss.

The biggest news of the day for Stoke was the return of Jack Butland, but it was clear the keeper was not completely comfortable, spilling the ball a couple of times, but he did make a class save in the second half, looking the Butland of old. The Potters gave up an early goal though and offered little in terms of attack, with Saido Berahino wasting a golden chance just before halftime. Still, Stoke had a chance to get a result, as a foul on Xherdan Shaqiri in the box set up a penalty kick for Arnautovic. The Austrian international blasted it into Southern Wales sky and,less than a minute later, the Swans doubled their lead, which put the game away. Stoke are still firmly in midtable but may be running out of reasons to play with motivation.
