Smith Rowe seals points for gunners against West Ham

Arsenal 2-0 West Ham

Despite sitting two places below the Hammers in the league table prior to Wednesday’s game, it has been Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal who have taken all three points away from the Emirates Stadium.

After leading early in the second half thanks to a Gabriel Martinelli opener, Arsenal was able to extend their lead by way of a late strike from young-gun Emile Smith Rowe.

Following Wednesday’s result, Arsenal now moves up to fourth spot with the Hammers dropping to fifth.

There were no shortage of talking points in the lead-up to the match, as the top-four both came off the back of Arteta’s hotly-debated decision to strip Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of the captaincy after yet another disciplinary breach.
