West Ham United defeated Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Everton striker Gary Lineker has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to West Ham United’s win against Arsenal.

The Hammers kicked off their 2015-16 Premier League campaign with a 2-0 victory over the Gunners away from home on Sunday afternoon.

Cheikhou Kouyate headed West Ham in the lead in the 43rd minute, and Mauro Zarate doubled the advantage in the 57th minute.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Emirates Stadium in North London, West Ham had just 38% of the possession, took eight shots of which four were on target, and earned four corners.

Former Tottenham star Lineker was following the match, and he was impressed with the performance of Slaven Bilic’s side.

The ex-Spurs striker also had positive words for 16-year-old Reece Oxford, who made his Premier League debut for West Ham against Arsenal.

Former West Ham prospect Hogan Ephraim, now on the books of Wycombe Wanderers, was also impressed with Oxford and the Hammers’ display in general.
