West Ham United 3-3 Arsenal: Gunners rescue point from 3-0 down

Alexandre Lacazette’s header saves a point for Arsenal.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said his team’s performance would give them nightmares after the Gunners’ 3-0 defeat to West Ham in the Premier League.

The Hammers took the lead at the London Stadium thanks to Jesse Lingard, Jarrod Bowen and Thomas Soucek, who converted a header from Michael Antonio.

But striker Alexandre Lacazette equalised late on after an own goal from Soucek and Craig Dawson provided an unlikely comeback.

This game is going to give me nightmares, because it’s very hard to stop some of the things we’ve been hurt with. Arteta told Sport.

The result leaves the Hammers fifth, two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, while Arsenal overtook Aston Villa to finish ninth.

We cannot have two surfaces.

West Ham 3-3 Arsenal: The coach of The Gunners finds the goals against of his team unacceptable.

Arteta was full of praise for his team’s second half, saying it was [Arsenal’s] best game of the season.

With a 3-0 defeat, Arsenal will almost certainly lose the race for the European places.

Lacazette gave the Gunners hope by scoring the opening goal for Arsenal just before half-time with a volley that was deflected by Soucek.

In the 61st. Dawson was able to cut the deficit back in the 57th minute after a cross from Calum Chambers, before the French striker equalised late on after good work from Nicolas Pepe.

That’s the level we can show, Artema added. We could have scored six or seven goals and won the game, but we can’t have two faces.

We stuck to the plan we had because we wanted to get out of here. We thought we could do something.

A defeat would have created a 10-point gap between the two sides and possibly ended Arsenal’s hopes of qualifying for the European tournament by a six-goal margin.

And while there will be questions about the poor performance in the first half, Arteta will be pleased with his side’s superb response to a disciplined West Ham.

Another good point

Jesse Lingard has scored five goals in eight games against Arsenal in all competitions.

After taking a 3-0 lead, it looked like David Moyes’ West Ham would be level with Chelsea at the end of the day.

It’s always a good point, Moyes told Sport. It would have been nice to take two more points, but we didn’t lose too much today.

Manchester United’s Lingard opened the scoring with a brilliant volley and gave Bowen a quick free kick 98 seconds later that flew past Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno into the net.

Soucek appeared to give West Ham complete control, but even as Arsenal’s comeback accelerated, the hosts created regular chances.

Antonio converted Said Benrahma’s cross on the back line and Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney blocked Bowen’s effort on goal for a 3-2 lead.

We were playing against a very good team, Moyes added. Sometimes people forget what we’re dealing with. We had chances to get out of sight, but we couldn’t take advantage of them.

West Ham have not finished above Arsenal in the league since 1985-86, but are still seven points clear of the Cannons.

A place in Europe, whatever that may be, would be a significant achievement for a club that finished just five points off the relegation zone last season. Despite the disappointment of being two points behind on Sunday, a top-four finish is still possible with nine games to go.
