Arsenal climb into Top 4 after convincing 2-0 win over West Ham in London derby
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsenal sneaked into the top four after a comprehensive performance saw them beat West Ham 2-0 to replace David Moyes’ side in the Champions League places.
After a goalless first half, Gabriel Martinelli opened the scoring early in the second period, before substitute Emile-Smith Rowe made sure of the victory.
West Ham finished the game with 10 men as Vladimir Coufal was sent off for a second bookable offence as he was adjudged to have fouled Lacazette in the penalty area.
Lacazette also saw his penalty saved but it mattered little as Mikel Arteta’s side continued their resurgence in the league.
After a minor slump that saw the Gunners lose to Manchester United and Everton, Arteta seems to have gotten his side back on track once again.
