Eddie Nketiah strikes late to give Arsenal win over West Ham.
It was a hard-fought win for the Gunners as they earned a 2-1 win over West Ham at the Emirates Stadium.
It was Mikel Arteta’s first match at home in the new season, with the Spaniard looking to build on last weekend’s comprehensive win over Fulham.
The Hammers started brightly with David Moyes’ side having more of the ball and creating a hive of chances in the opening minutes.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang would find space in the opposition box and tee a cross that met Lacazette in the area who drove in a header past Lukasz Fabianski to give the Gunners the lead in the 25th minute.
The Hammers would equalize deep into first-half when a cross from Ryan Fredricks would find Antonio in the area to pull the visitors back into the match.
The visitors would come into the second-half strongly, dictating the match as Antonio won battles against Arsenal’s defenders.
Eddie Nketiah would be the hero of the day deep into stoppage time when he received a pass from Dani Ceballos, who had made a darting run in the area, to slot the ball into the net and give Arsenal the win.
The rest leaves the North London side second in the table to Everton who demolished West Brom 5-2.
