Arse. Not not Arsenal, but the lateness of my musings. I was a absolute rubbish BBQ which meant that I could not watch the game live – but I have briefly seen the goals. I will be brief :
Payet pulling the strings, but not on the scoresheet – sts up Kouyate once more for a fine headed goal; AC setting my Mark Noble who surely deserves some manner of England recognition with his brace. Woy wants to take Jack Wilshire? Really?
Kouyate profits from Payet’s industry with a great header.
Records are also being made:
And we are still after 4th spot!
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: “We totally deserved it. They are physical and organised. They have a good home record against big teams and they were better in the first 25 minutes. We were on the back foot but then we started to stretch them.
“The goals helped – the first and second before the break. We scored magnificent goals from open play and it’s a great win.”
This is actually turning out to be a wonderful season.
