West Ham were carved  pieces and worse as  Arsenal side took a humiliating 4-0 half time lead.

HT: Hammers 0 Arsenal 4

And any hopes we might have made it a terrific three wins over the north Londoners were fantasy as we fell apart in front of a capacity crowd and a vastly superior team.

The Hammers had their moments early on but the only shot on goal was from Bowen – easily saved – before uttely collapsing after a first goal from Saliba’s header despite around nine Hammers players being in the penalty area.

The writing had been on the wall earlier when  a few minutes earlier  Areola needed to make a wonder save from Trossard.

Saka should have had a couple in the 37th and 38th minute, heading and firing wide before Areola brought down Saka, received a yellow card and was beaten from the spot by the brilliant Arsenal man.

But it was to get a whole lot worse when first Gabriel and Trossard added two more before the break when booing rung out around the stadium.

And TV cameras showed thousands of Hammers fans walking away from the stadium produce the most horrendous of displays if indeed that’s the right word.
