Arsenal 3-0 West Ham: Gunners impress in comfortable victory

Arsenal defeated West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.

Arsenal maintained their brilliant home form as they overcame West Ham United with relative ease at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.

The Gunners went ahead when Olivier Giroud scored on the stroke of half-time but they had to wait until the final 10 minutes to put the game to bed.

First Aaron Ramsey scored with nine minutes remaining and then Mathieu Flamini scored a rare goal to ensure there was no way back for the visitors.

West Ham had chances to score prior to Ramsey's killer second, with Kevin Nolan and Matt Jarvis both going close. But ultimately the Hammers will be left to rue those missed chances, as their poor form continues.

The result means Arsenal moved four points clear of fourth-placed Arsenal while West Ham remain in 10th.

Arsenal enjoyed the majority of the ball and they also ensured West Ham had just a single shot on target - something manager Sam Allardyce will surely be working to improve in the days ahead.
