Arsenal kept their FA Cup hopes alive by coming from behind with two late goals to beat West Ham 2-1 in a thrilling third round London derby tie at Upton Park here on Sunday.

With just 12 minutes to go the Gunners, Arsenal was behind after Alessandro Diamanti had put the struggling Hammers, 23 points behind their visitors, ahead on the stroke of half-time.

But in the 78th minute Aaron Ramsey equalised with a fierce shot from close range after the Wales midfielder had been neatly played in by Carlos Vela. And five minutes later Arsenal had the lead when Eduardo rose to power in a header which keeper Robert Green could only palm into the net.
