Don Hutchison suggests Michail Antonio cost West Ham a goal

Upton Park

Both London outfits played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Boleyn Ground.

West Ham United and Arsenal contested one of the best Premier League matches of the season following this afternoon's 3-3 draw at Upton Park.

The Gunners, bidding to preserve their slim hopes of winning the title, cruised into a two-goal lead courtesy of goals from Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

However, a quickfire double from Andy Carroll just before half time saw Slaven Bilic's side get back into the clash in stunning fashion, with Carroll then completing his hat-trick early in the second half as the Hammers looked on course for the win that would take them level on points with fourth-placed Manchester City.

But Laurent Koscielny equalised for the North Londoners with 20 minutes to go as both sides shared a point which, in truth, helps neither club all that much in the scheme of things.

Don Hutchison was vocal on Twitter throughout out the contest and believes that Michail Antonio - who did set up Carroll's third goal - was somewhat culpable for the strike which put Arsene Wenger's side 2-0 ahead.


With Manchester City winning 2-1 in the visit of West Brom, it leaves the Irons five points behind the Sky Blues in the race for Champions League qualification.
