Highlights: Arsenal 2-1 West Ham United


West Ham United suffered another agonising Premier League loss at Arsenal on Saturday evening, going down to a hugely frustrating 2-1 defeat.

Despite creating more than twice as many goal attempts as the Gunners, the Irons were left to rue an inability to turn dangerous positions and chances into goals and, just as they did before the COVID-19 lockdown in March, departed north London with nothing.

Arsenal had just two shots on target and scored from both of them – Alexandre Lacazette scoring with their first meaningful attempt and substitute Eddie Nketiah winning it with five minutes to play – while West Ham repeatedly tested Bernd Leno and his defenders, but had just Michail Antonio’s equaliser on the stroke of half-time to show for it.

There could and probably should have been a different outcome.
