Arsenal showcased a cohesive performance, securing a resounding 6-0 victory over West Ham United at London Stadium on Sunday.
The game witnessed West Ham’s joint-heaviest home league defeat and Arsenal’s joint-largest away league victory.
The three points bagged narrowed the gap on Premier League leaders Liverpool to just two points in line with the Citizens.
The win not only ended Arsenal’s three-match winless streak against West Ham but also propelled them to level on points with second placed Manchester City, matching them on goal difference.
Despite initial chances being missed, including headers from Leandro Trossard and a saved volley by Alphonse Areola, Arsenal’s persistence paid off when William Saliba headed in Rice’s corner in the 32nd minute.
Soon after, Bukayo Saka was fouled by Areola in the box, and he made no mistake from the penalty spot, redeeming himself from a previous miss and extending Arsenal’s lead to 2-0.
Saka’s goal marked his 50th for Arsenal across all competitions, making him the fifth-youngest player to achieve this milestone for the club.
Arsenal’s dominance continued as Gabriel headed in another goal from a Rice set-piece just minutes later, followed by Trossard finding the net again in first-half stoppage time, securing a fourth goal for Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Manchester United won their maintenance on 6th place after dropping Aston Villa to 5th place in game ended 1-2 at villa park.
