Arsenal 3-1 West Ham United: Hammers flops rated and slated after third consecutive Premier League defeat
New boss Manuel Pellegrini is yet to pick up a point in charge of the east London outfit
Arsenal came from behind to beat a spirited West Ham United at the Emirates.
Marko Arnautovic gave the visitors a well-deserved lead after a fantastic run from Felipe Anderson in a first half an hour they completely dominated.
But yet another lapse in concentration at the back this season allowed Hector Bellerin to run from deep in behind, and his cross found an unmarked Nacho Monreal, who finished superbly.
With the scores level at half time, the Hammers would have felt reasonably comfortable going into the break.
However, the introduction of Alexandre Lacazette alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang caused chaos in a backline which had already conceded seven goals this season.
A poor clearance from Issa Diop eventually found a way to Lacazette, who blasted a cross into the path of the young France Under-21 international.
Whilst searching for an equaliser, the Gunners broke and Danny Welbeck had the time to take a touch, turn and score a goal with his left foot before a Hammers player had a chance to get a tackle in.
The result means it is three defeats at the start of a season for the second season in a row for West Ham, while Unai Emery gets his first Premier League points.
