Podolski, Ramsey, and more: Arsenal players react on Twitter and Instagram to Hammers victory

Emirates Stadium 3

How Arsenal's players reacted on social media to their 3-1 win over West Ham.

There were no on-pitch selfie's after the win over West Ham, but Arsenal's players did use social media sites to show fans how much the win meant to them.

Coming back from a goal down, as they did against Wigan at the weekend, the Gunners ground out a result, and in the second half it was far better than that - flowing football from a team who looked like they had their confidence back.

It's just as well heading into the final weeks of the season, as the Gunners piled the pressure on Everton who host Crystal Palace on Wednesday night. A loss would have been a severe setback.

It was a match Arsenal dominated, with 61 per cent possession. They had only two more attempts on goal (14-12), but when it came to shots on target, they were far more accurate (8-2).

The Gunners even edged the aerial battles, a rarity against Sam Allardyce side, winning 53% of the duels.

Arsene Wenger said after the game he saw the win as a big victory, telling Arsenal.com: "Yes, we were tested mentally, but I think we were strong.

"We were united, disciplined, determined, and despite being 1-0 down - I couldn't see where we could be 1-0 down - it was a big blow but we responded well. Overall you could feel that the team was absolutely focused from the first to the last minute. We built slowly a win that I think was normal."

Here's how his players reacted on social media, and warning, there is a selfie in there...
