FA Cup and Premier League: talking points from the weekend’s action

Harry Kane is out of sorts, Joe Hart soars before being floored, and Stoke must choose between youth and experience up front While Southampton will take something from getting this far in the world’s most celebrated domestic cup competition there are other, more pressing priorities, such as making a late dash for safety in the Premier League.

Arsenal fans ambivalent despite win as Arsène Wenger starts long goodbye | David Hytner

The Frenchman will doubtless receive a vociferous send off as his departure draws closer but the response in the stands was distinctly low key during the victory over West ham The promise had come from Ivan Gazidis.

Alexandre Lacazette’s late double seals Arsenal rout against West Ham

Until the final 10 minutes it was tempting to wonder whether a few Arsenal supporters might even be impertinent enough to subject the tall, grey-haired man on the touchline – hands on hips, elbows out, wearing a worried look that has been seen here too often in recent years – to a smattering of boos at the final whistle.

Andy Carroll’s late strike for West Ham saves Joe Hart and stuns Stoke

These are the moments when Gareth Southgate could be forgiven for wondering whether it is time to draw a line through Joe Hart’s international career. This was another personal ordeal for the man who has just lost his place as England’s first-choice goalkeeper. Southgate was here to witness it and, at this rate, there has to be a serious possibility that Hart will be cut adrift from the England squad that goes to Russia for this summer’s…

Javier Hernández dents Chelsea’s top-four hopes as West Ham spy safety

Marko Arnautovic double lifts West Ham and sinks Southampton

What a relief it was for the West Ham hierarchy that the only boos at the London Stadium floated out of the away end. There were no pitch invasions, no missiles thrown at the directors’ box.
