Arsenal’s Title Hopes Dented by 2-0 Defeat to West Ham
A Bad Night for the Gunners
Arsenal’s hopes of winning the Premier League title suffered a major blow as they were beaten 2-0 by West Ham United at the London Stadium. The Gunners were outplayed by the Hammers, who took the lead through Said Benrahma’s penalty in the first half. Jarrod Bowen sealed the win with a second goal in the second half.
Poor Performance from Arsenal
Arsenal were well below their best and never really looked like getting back into the game. They were second best in all areas of the pitch and West Ham deserved their victory. The result leaves Arsenal eight points behind leaders Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
Mikel Arteta’s Future in Doubt
The defeat puts pressure on Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. The Spaniard has been under fire in recent weeks following a poor run of form. It remains to be seen whether he will be given the time to turn things around.
West Ham’s Impressive Form
West Ham, meanwhile, are in excellent form under David Moyes. The Hammers have now won their last four Premier League games and are up to fifth in the table. They will be hoping to continue their good run when they face Manchester United next weekend.
