Arsenal Stage Impressive Comeback In Six-Goal Thriller

Premier League

Report: West Ham United 3-3 Arsenal

Date: 21 March 2021

Venue: Olympic Stadium

Arsenal rallied back from three goals down to rescue a 3-3 draw at West Ham United on Sunday evening.

The Gunners recalled Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang while West Ham welcomed back Jesse Lingard, who was barred from playing against his parent club Manchester United the last time out.

Lingard gave the Hammers the lead in the 15th minute with a stinging volley from just outside the box across shot-stopper Bernd Leno after a cut-back by Michail Antonio.

Jarrod Bowen quickly doubled the lead for David Moyes' charges two minutes later with a low strike at the near post past Leno after Lingard caught Arsenal unawares with a quck free-kick.

The hosts went 3-0 up in the 32nd minute after Antonio's header at the back post deflected off the foot of Tomas Soucek and went in at the other post.

Mikel Arteta's troops pulled a goal seven minutes before the break back after Soucek deflected Alexandre Lacazette's strike into his own net in an attempted block and Arsenal went to the break trailing 3-1.

The Gunners got the second goal back through another own goal in the 62nd minute after Craig Dawson diverted Calum Chambers' thumping cross into his own goal.

Antonio had a big chance for West Ham in the last quarter of an hour after he latched onto a cross by Said Benrahmha at the back post but his first-time shot hit the post from a yard out, with the net gaping.

The comeback was complete for Arteta's men in the last eight minutes after Lacazette powered home a header from Nicolas Pepe's cross, as the sides shared the spoils, with Arsenal going up to ninth while West Ham fell two points adrift of a top four spot in fifth.
