Arsenal 3 West Ham 0
There’s little more to say than we met a far better team who sealed the game with three fine goals which came from the sort of footballing philosophy we’d love to see employed at the Boleyn.
It was the tenth successive win by the north Londoners over us and a double this season of course!
Olivier Giroud grabbed their first with a curling effort into the top left hand corner, the Welsh midfielder drilled home the second at the end of a clever one touch passing move and Mathieu Flamini clinched victory late in the second half soon after arriving as a sub.
But for Adrian it could have been a lot worse.The keeper made a great save from Alexis low to his left early on before turning a Ramsey effort over the bar with an acrobatic save.
Kevin Nolan came closest for the Iron when he drove a fierce shot at goal in the first half but Ospina saved well.
To their credit the boys had battled well against the slick moving Gunners but when Giroud curled a shot beyond Adrian in first half injury time it looked curtains and so it proved.
Matt Jarvis had done down the left wing making his presence felt with some hard running and crossing but he fired over early in the second half.
Ramsey,however, almost added to the scoreline in the 69th minute but saw his early shot beat Adrian and his right hand post.
However, he made amends soon after when after a quick passing move, Giroud played him in and he gav Adrian no chance from the centre of the penalty area.
Three minutes later saw his right foot effort from close range seal the points with Cazorla providing the assist.
There was time for Cheik Kouyate to charge out from the back and run almost the length of gthe pitch before firing over.
But we were never really at the races and the Emirates emptied with the Hammers fans wondering whether we can finally grab a win against Sunderland ( beaten at home 4-0 b y Villa today) next weekend.
