English Premier League 

Result: Arsenal 4-1 West Ham United

Date: 22 April 2018

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Arsenal returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 4-1 victory over West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Gunners were without Petr Cech, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere for the encounter.

It was the Hammers who got off to a promising start with Marko Arnautovic and Joao Mario testing David Opsina in the opening 15 minutes.

The Gunners carved out a chance on 35 minutes as Bellerin lifted a cross into the box, where Danny Welbeck rose above his marker but could only head over the crossbar.

Arsenal were dealt a blow shortly before the break when Mohamed Elneny was stretchered off and replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Five minutes into the second half, the Gunners opened the scoring through Nacho Monreal's fifth league goal of the campaign.

West Ham were level on 64 minutes, though, as Arnautovic found the back of the net with a thumping strike after Arsenal failed to clear their lines.

Arsenal almost restored their lead in the 77th minute but Welbeck's curling effort was brilliantly tipped away by Hart.

The Gunners did go ahead on 81 minutes when Ramsey's routine cross sailed past everyone and beyond Hart before finding the back of the net.

The win was sealed four minutes later when Alexandre Lacazette rifled home a shot at Hart's near post from a tight angle.

There was enough time for Arsenal to bag a fourth goal as Ramsey turned provider to pick out Lacazette, who blasted the ball past Hart.
