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 in London on Sunday.

With just 12 minutes to go the Gunners, 10-times FA Cup winners, were behind to their Premier League rivals 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 19-year-old Wales midfielder had been neatly played in by Carlos Vela.

And five minutes later Arsenal had the lead when Eduardo rose high to power in a header which Hammers keeper Robert Green could only palm into the net.
