Bilic on disallowed goals

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

West Ham United

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic on his side's two disallowed goals: "You know I don't mind talking about that but this time I'll let the pundits talk about it for once because I always try to talk. But if you are saying it five times I look a bit ridiculous even to myself."

'Carroll has to be totally dedicated'

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "Andy Carroll haseverything. It's impossible to stop him.

"His work rate, watch how many times he tried to get the ball off them. He was keeping the ball, laying it off. Heading, he's maybe the best in the world. He has to stay away from those injuries. 

"He's professional but he's got to be totally dedicated to his career and football."

'More difficult to win title'

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: "We've shown resilience and spirit to come back to 3-3. In the last 20 mins it could have gone both ways. I’m disappointed we didn't (have an answer to Andy Carroll).

"I’m not here after the game to blame the players. We are disappointed to concede three goals. Particularly after 2-1. Overall it’s a shame.

"Do we still have an opportunity to win the title? I don’t know. We made it more difficult today."

'Maginificent'

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

"It was a great game of football. Magnificent," says West Ham boss Slaven Bilic.

Should Andy Carroll have been sent off?

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger responds with a straight up "yes".

Shane Daly:  3 goals doesn't get you to the Euros, sorry. Will the players in division three who score 4 goals this weekend be going?   

'England is in the back of my mind'

West Ham's hat-trick hero Andy Carroll has just spoken to BT Sport:

"It was a tough game. When we went down 2-0 it was disappointing.

Best game in a West Ham shirt?

“Three goals I think gives it away.

“We’ve been practising crosses all week. They’ve conceded from crosses and it paid off."

On the battle with Gabriel: “It was just one of those games. Both of us give it about, I don’t think either of us are dirty players. We’re still in (the top four chase). We’re happy with the draw."

Are you thinking about going to the Euros with England?

“Without a doubt. You have got to keep that in the back of my head but I have to play each game here and see how it goes.”

Top six...

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Prem
Opta

Here's the Premier League top six.

West Ham have work to do to get into the top four, but nowhere near as much as Arsenal need to do to win the title. Surely that ship has now sailed for the Gunners?

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Andy Carroll had 10 of West Ham's 16 shots in this match. No Premier League player has more than 10 in a match this season including blocked shots.  

'Don't dispose of Wenger, yet'

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker on Final Score

“This has been a bonkers season, there will still be twists and turns. Let’s not dispose of Arsene Wenger just yet. Let’s see what Leicester and Spurs do.”  

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Six goals. Another disallowed. A sending off debate.

It's the Premier League season summed up in 93 minutes.

'Do Arsenal deserve title?'

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker on Final Score

"The turning point for me was when the goal was disallowed, Manuel Lanzini’s goal was onside.

"Arsenal let two goals slip. If you lose a two-goal lead at this stage in the race, do you deserve to win the title?"

FULL-TIME

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

If you haven't been pulled to the edge of your sofa by that one, then you're made of granite.

A match of football that reminds you why on earth we put up with this ridiculous game most of the time.

All it missed was a late, late sting in the tail. But I don't think the tickers could have handled that. 

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Michail Antonio makes a similar decision to pull back Mesut Ozil. Booking.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Arsenal break. Alexis Sanchez is on the run but is fouled by Winston Reid. Worth the hit for Reid there.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Michail Antonio winds up one of his long throws for West Ham. Laurent Koscielny gets in a bit of a muddle but gets it away.

And now Emmanuel Emenike and Mark Noble combine to find Dimitri Payet on the edge of the area, but it's a rare shot miles over the bar from the Frenchman.

Three minutes of added time. Booo, we want more.

Where's the midfield?

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Conor McNamara

BBC Radio 5 live commentator

"There is no midfield in this match. They just go from end to end. I don't want this game to end. If either side were to lose this, they would be devastated."

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Mesut Ozil puts a low ball into the Hammers area and Claret and Blue legs are flapping at it from all angles. They just about stop it from reaching Olivier Giroud. It's any means necessary at the moment.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Dimitri Payet disco dances his way through the Arsenal midfield and goes down shoulder-to-shoulder with Aaron Ramsey. No free-kick, right decision.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

From now on, unless told otherwise, assume that this game remains ruddy brilliant and an absolute belter.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez wants a month of Sundays to get a shot away. He spins into the area and looks like he's about to pull a left-foot trigger. But he cuts back and goes down under a challenge from Winston Reid, but doesn't ask for a penalty.

West Ham break, but Dimitri Payet's ball to Andy Carroll is overhit.

'This is a classic'

"This is a real classic. It's so difficult to call. Either team could go and win this now. This is what's so great about the end of the season. Both teams have to gamble. There's no point sitting back for a draw here. 

"If West Ham want to get Champions League football, they've got to win this game. If Arsenal want to stay in this title race and hope the two ahead of them might slip up, they've got to win this game."

Mesut Ozil works a ball into the West Ham area for Danny Welbeck to chase but Adrian is out to it first

"This game has been relentless. The fans haven't had a breather, they're after the referee every opportunity. The atmosphere is red-hot and to be fair to the players  of both sets have really responded to it."

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

End to end.

Aaron Cresswell lets fly from the left edge of the area and David Ospina sprawls across to touch it wide.

From the corner Andy Carroll nods it to the back post and Winston Reid athletically gets a foot to it, but the angle is too tight.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

We've still got 15 minutes of this beautiful madness remaining. In a perfect world it would never end.

Gabriel is running around like Wile E Coyote after he's been hit by an anvil and gives the ball to Dimitri Payet. West Ham can't capitalise though.

At the other end, Olivier Giroud, off the bench for Mohamed Elneny, drops a header wide of the post.

Alistair Wiseman: That's a Tony Adams finish from Koscielny there. Composed, picked his spot. Impressive.

Matt: I am an Arsenal club member but refuse to buy a ticket to watch this team until Wenger makes massive defensive changes. 

Mark: Sick of people saying 'this is why Arsenal won't win the league'. We never thought we would after the defeats against Chelsea and Swansea. Plus Leicester City's consistency.

Dimitri Payet wriggles inside from the left touchline and curls a low, right-foot effort at goal which David Ospina pushes behind.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Gabriel is still up in the clouds mind you. He tangles with Andy Carroll and looks like he flips out a leg at the striker. The referee doesn't see it and he's a lucky boy.

GOAL - West Ham 3-3 Arsenal

Laurent Koscielny

Try predicting this game. I dare you.

Arsenal had just started composing themselves and recycle the ball from a corner.

Mesut Ozil crosses from the right and Danny Welbeck, possibly more by luck, directs it into Laurent Koscielny's path and he prods in from five yards.

And breathe.

West Ham 3-2 Arsenal

Nacho Monreal thinks he's equalised for Arsenal.

Winston Reid nods away a corner and Monreal hits the dropping ball from 25 yards out. It fizzes towards the bottom-right corner but Manuel Lanzini is on the line to make a superb clearance.

'I would take Carroll to the Euros'

West Ham 3-2 Arsenal

Neil Lennon

Former Celtic boss on BBC Radio 5 live

"I would (take him) yes. He's my type of centre-forward. He looks really mobile, he's chased one down the line with Koscielny, who's quite quick and he's actually beat him in a foot race. 

"The big man is really up for it and he's been magnificent. He need to be careful with his disciplinary side he doesn't want to spoil his day with a second yellow card but he has been tremendous. 

"With 10 minutes to go in an England game, he could be an option for Roy Hodgson."

West Ham 3-2 Arsenal

I've had a quick look down the Grand National runners and riders today for any fittingly named horses.

On His Own at 40-1 would probably sum up Andy Carroll's performance for West Ham today.

From the Arsenal point of view, there's The Romford Pele at 50-1.

What Arsenal would do for the majestic Ray Parlour right now.

That is among the things I thought I would never say.

The full National pinstickers' guide is here.

West Ham 3-2 Arsenal

It's straight into the arms of David Ospina and it's time for the Gunners to regroup.

West Ham 3-2 Arsenal

Arsenal have fallen to pieces. They're making nothing and look like they're having a breakdown at the back.

Dimitri Payet is about to swing in a free-kick from the right.

Andy Carroll celebrates

Andy Carrol has had eight of West Ham's 10 shots. Slaven Bilic's decision to pick him is looking like a decent one.

Also, Carroll is the first Premier League player to score a hat-trick v Arsenal since Wayne Rooney in August 2011.

BOOM when @AndyTCarroll stays at the far post,there is only gonna be one winner!! Antonio👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 AC #matchball

Carroll for England?

West Ham 3-2 Arsenal

Wonder if Andy Carroll's already booked his summer holiday?

Luke: Andy Carroll showing why European defenders can't handle him. He was our best player at Euro 2012, get on the Eurostar son!

Ollie Woosley: would definitely take Carroll to the Euros for if we need a goal with 10 minutes to go. Unplayable in the air.

Jay: You know it's time to question your manager when Andy Carroll scores a hat-trick against you.
