(130) Arsenal throw away TWO-goal lead as Saka misses penalty! | West Ham 2-2 Arsenal | EPL Highlights – YouTube

It was probably our best performance of the season as we came from two down to show the sort of spirit that has been missing over previous games this term against Arsenal this afternoon.

And the confidence it will have given the team will hopefully be carried through to the last lap of the season after gaining a point which probably none of us could have imagined.

It truly was an outstanding performance as we rediscovered some of the form of last season with every player in the claret and blue leaving absolutely nothing on the park.

And that – beyond most things – is what every Hammers fans expects from its players. It was also a game full of incident as the video above demonstrates and for those who didn’t see it – or those who want to again – here are the highlights.

    I wouldn’t say it was our best game of the season because I’m always going to prefer a game where we win four nil or something over a draw however it was up there because if the situation we were in in the first ten minutes going two down. It reminded me of the game during lockdown when we came back from three down against Spurs. This game jacked the Lanzini screamer at the end. Antonio’s header at the end where he hit the crossbar could have been that moment maybe even topped it because it would have meant three points but you can’t win them all as they say. The effort to come back considering the odds terrific. Considering the fact we were playing in Europe on Thursday the effort was terrific. I watched Moyes urging his players forward to attack throughout the game. I watch him during games and he’s often urging them to press. In this game they actually did it for much of the game. Just a shame about the early goals. Kehrer not tracking Odegard and Coufal not tracking Jesus. Apart from that it was a pretty faultless performance. Well done to the lads and we’ll done to Moyes. Let’s hope they’ve got something left for Gent in a few days.
