Arsenal vs West Ham United Review

Updated: January 24, 2013

Arsenal : Scintillating , Aggresive performance from the Gunners as they netted a very pleasing win to the fans over the Hammers. Coming behind two defeats from Manchester City and Chelsea , Arsenal bothered much to stay alive in the competition to qualify Champions League spot . First half they played a normal passing game both from the wings and center with  some incomplete assists near the box . Arsenal allowed the Hammers to an early goal from the set piece . Once they conceded , they were desperate to hold up the attack straight away . A quick attack from the Gunners , Podolski made a stunner outside the box which splashed the nets very quick . Moments after the second half , Arsenal expoited their strength with a fierce rugged aggression with the likes of Walcott , Podolski and Giroud . Four goals in ten minutes from the Gunners , West Ham could not do much about it as they looked a mere spectator . Giroud sparked an entry to the goals galore netting 2 goals from the wings in the same fashion . Cazorla goal of the flick of his left leg and Walcott’s shot both came from Podolski assist . Arsenal did easily exploit the Hammer’s low intensity game play . Ramsey stayed much positive in his position to move the game very well . At the end , Arsenal had their momentum  very well to ease a comfortable victory at Emirates with one point behind Everton and four points  behind Tottenham after successive defeats last weeks .

West Ham United : Eary in the game , West Ham appeared to have the positive touch to drive the ball and to troube Arsenal . But the intensity from the Hammers kept fading everytime Arsenal began to make counter attacks .Collison scored a great shot which Szczesny could not stop . Vaz Te never seemed to harm the Gunners . Vaz Te should have made some mark but he did fail to do so. Diame at bench , Chamakh’s unavailabilty and Carrol’s and Cole’s absence proved them costly . Jaaskelainen was excellent in the pitch with fantastic saves from many chances created from the Gunners .  Tomkins had a decent game moving the ball freely . West  Ham hardly created chances and tried to attack the oppostion .
