Arsenal, West Ham Play Out Six-Goal Thriller

English Premier League

Result: West Ham United 3-3 Arsenal
 
Date: 09 April 2016
 
Venue: Boleyn Ground  
 
Arsenal and West Ham United shared the spoils, after playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Boleyn Ground.
 
West Ham got off to an encouraging start and had the ball in the back of the net in the 13th minute through Manuel Lanzini, although the Argentine was flagged for offside.
 
The Gunners then took the lead in the 17th minute as Mesut Ozil sprung the offside trap and showed great composure fire into the bottom corner.
 
The lead was doubled in the 34th minute, as Iwobi clipped a neat pass to Alex Sanchez, who calmly slotted past Adrian from 12-yards out.
 
However, West Ham reduced the deficit after 40 minutes, as Andy Carroll headed home Aaron Cresswell's inch-perfect cross from the left.
 
Carroll then leveled matters on the stroke of halftime courtesy of a fine half-volley, after Arsenal failed to deal with a set-piece.
 
West Ham then took the lead in the 52nd minute, as Michael Antontio lifted the ball to the far post, where Carroll was on hand head home for his hat-trick.
 
Arsenal hit back just before the 70-minute mark when Ozil's cross deflected off Danny Welbeck and found Koscielny, who side-footed home from six-yards out.
 
Both sides pushed for a winner in the closing stages of the second half, but they both struggled to create openings in the final and the score remained 3-3.
