The Gunners crushed their city rivals with an incredible attacking display at the London Stadium.

Arsenal defeated West Ham 6-0 in their Premier League game on Sunday. The Hammers were humiliated as Arsenal celebrated their fourth league victory in a row.

What happened?

Arsenal took control of the game early on as they pushed for an early opener. It took the Gunners half an hour before William Saliba broke the deadlock with a header.

The Gunners then used their momentum to score three more goals in the span of only 15 minutes. Goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel, and Leandro Trossard made it 4-0 for Arsenal before the break, convincing a large portion of the West Ham fans to leave the stadium before the second half.

Things only got worse for the hosts after the break. David Moyes’ side failed to contain Arsenal’s devastating attacks as the Gunners remained in charge of the possession.

Bukayo Saka made it 5-0 for the Gunners with a perfect low shot in the 63rd minute. Only two minutes later, Declan Rice put the icing on the cake for his side with a stunning shot from behind the box. Arsenal had a few more chances to extend their lead but settled for the 6-0 win as they left the London Stadium with a massive derby win.
