Sport Arsenal digests West Ham at the end of the game
West Ham woe as Sullivan says he can't guarantee making ANY signings
The Hammers have endured a summer of discontent after seeing no fresh faces walk through the door while they sold highly-rated Grady Diangana to West Brom for £20million. Fans have been furious with the direction West Ham are going in - some supporters have supported the GSB (Gold, Sullivan, Brady) Out campaign, with a small group of protestors unfurling anti-ownership banners outside the ground before kick-off against Newcastle on the opening day of the season, and again outside the Emirates Stadium last Saturday.
Arsenal 2-1 West Ham Goals: Lacazette (25th) and Nketiah (86th) for the Gunners // Antonio (45th) for the Hammers
London cooking .
Winners of Fulham, the Gunners were keen to continue to taste their London rivals. A mission to which they did not fail this Saturday evening, following goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah (2-1). But contrary to what this meeting suggested, the locals struggled to finish a West Ham team more consistent than expected.
Dominator of entry, Arsenal was quick to set the table. In particular thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, on fire in his left lane and who deposits a cross on the skull of Lacazette (1-0, 25th). Less than ten minutes later, the Hammers are not far from obtaining a penalty following a hand fault, but the VAR decides otherwise. No regrets, since Michail Antonio equalizes before the break by throwing himself in front of Rob Holding on a cross from Ryan Fredericks (1-1, 45 '). After the snack, Mikel Arteta's players fall asleep and struggle to put the opposing defense in difficulty. But as the end of dinner approaches, Eddie Nketiah - who replaced Lacazette a few minutes earlier - offers his team the three points by pushing a pass from Dani Ceballos (2-1, 85 ').

CHRIS SUTTON: Liverpool put a new-look Arsenal team in their place .
CHRIS SUTTON - INSIGHT: It didn't look like it would be an easy start for Liverpool. Their first three league fixtures were against Leeds at home, Chelsea away, then Arsenal here. They could have tripped up against any of those. Instead, they’ve got three wins. © Provided by Daily Mail Diogo Jota came on for Sadio Mane and could even have had a hat-trick in the final 10 minutes City will know they cannot let Liverpool run away in the league, given what happened last season.
