On This Day: Hammers stun Arsenal in Premier League opener

 

West Ham United made a winning start to the Slaven Bilic era on this day in 2015, beating Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Cheikhou Kouyate opened the scoring for the Hammers after Petr Cech misjudged Dimitri Payet's free-kick, allowing the Senegalese midfielder to head home into an empty net.

After the break, Mauro Zarate managed to double the advantage with a driven effort from 20 yards after being gifted the ball by the Gunners' defence.

West Ham would go on to finish seventh after a memorable campaign which culminated with that final, unforgettable game at the Boleyn Ground.
