West Ham travel to the Emirates this evening looking for their second win at Arsenal's new stadium.
United became the last away club to win at Highbury back in February 2006 when goals from Nigel Reo-Coker, Bobby Zamora and Matt Etherington secured a 3-2 win for the Irons.
And 14 months later Zamora scored the only goal of the game as West Ham won 1-0 at the Emirates, therefore becoming the first club to win there - since when the Hammers have lost three and drawn one of their four visits.
For those unable to attend the match in person, live updates from North London will be provided throughout the evening on our forum match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=145730.
