Arsenal 3-1 West Ham United: Gunners come from behind to seal first win under Emery [Best Tweets]

Arsenal had to come from behind to record their first win under Unai Emery as they beat West Ham United 3-1 at the Emirates on Saturday

The Gunners had to work hard to grab their first points of the season, having gone a goal down to Marko Arnautovic’s close-range finish midway through the first half. But, the scores were left at the half-hour mark as Hector Bellerin galloped forward and squared the ball for Nacho Monreal to equalise.

Chances flowed in as the game progressed further, but Arsenal scored once again in the 70th minute, although they needed a stroke of luck as Issa Diop deflected in Alexandre Lacazette’s attempted pass into the back of his own net. The win was then rounded off deep into injury time, with Bellerin providing the assist once again, this time for Danny Welbeck.

Despite the win though, there were some glaring issues at the back for the Gunners, and Arsenal fans did not miss in pointing out the obvious, with a special mention for Hector Bellerin.

Meanwhile, there were calls for Lucas Torreira to be handed his first start after the Uruguayan produced yet another solid performance.

But, the spotlight was on Unai Emery, as he Arsenal finally won their first competitive game under his tutelage on Saturday.
