Arsenal ‘revenge’ West Ham in smashing 6-0 win

Arsenal delivered a resounding 6-0 victory over West Ham United in an away fixture, firmly asserting their presence in the Premier League title race on Sunday.

The visitors dominated the game from the outset, establishing a commanding 4-0 lead by halftime.

Goals from William Saliba, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel, and Leandro Trossard ensured Arsenal’s overwhelming advantage before the break.

The onslaught continued in the second half, with Saka netting his second goal to make it 5-0. Former West Ham midfielder Declan Rice then added insult to injury by scoring Arsenal’s sixth goal.

The comprehensive victory allowed Arsenal to narrow the goal difference gap with champions Manchester City, bringing both teams level on 52 points in the league standings.

However, Arsenal remains in third place due to a lower goal tally, with City having a game in hand. Meanwhile, league leaders Liverpool maintain their lead with 54 points.

Arsenal’s triumph served as sweet revenge for previous defeats suffered against West Ham earlier in the season, including a League Cup loss and a 2-0 home defeat in December.

This time, Arsenal showcased lethal efficiency, inflicting one of West Ham’s worst home league defeats since 1963.

The magnitude of Arsenal’s dominance was such that thousands of disillusioned home fans left the stadium before halftime, sparing themselves from witnessing further humiliation for West Ham.
