Photos: Sam Allardyce shows his frustration as West Ham United lose to Arsenal

Allardyce deflated

Below are the best pictures from Saturday’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium.

West Ham United’s poor run of form continued on Saturday, as they were comprehensively defeated 3-0 by Arsenal away from home in the Premier League.

Sam Allardyce’s side headed into the game at the Emirates Stadium in North London on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea at the Boleyn Ground.

Prior to that encounter against the Blues, West Ham had lost 3-1 to Crystal Palace at home, with Allardyce coming under pressure.

The West Ham manager will now be under more pressure, as his team went down 3-0 to Arsenal in the London derby on Saturday.

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal took the lead on the stroke of half time when Olivier Giroud slammed in an angled drive.

Although Kevin Nolan and Matt Jarvis came close to scoring for the Hammers, late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini saw the Gunners pick up all three points.

The defeat means that West Ham have emerged victorious in just one of their last 12 Premier League games and maintained Allardyce’s record of never winning at Arsenal.

West Ham are currently 10th in the Premier League table with 39 points from 29 matches, while Arsenal are third with 57.

Below are the best pictures from the game, featuring Allardyce’s frustrations and Arsenal players’ jubilation.
