West Ham 1-3 Arsenal

We produced a stunning second-half comeback to end our long winless run in the Premier League.
Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in the space of eight minutes - with Pepe's stunning effort the pick of the bunch.

The first half was flat to say the least, but West Ham found a goal when we failed to clear and Pablo Fornals' cross was headed in by Angelo Ogbonna - with a sizeable deflection off Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

We'd been underwhelming up to that point and struggled to get going after the break too, but our confidence started to return when Martinelli fired home confidently from a Sead Kolasinac pass.

The game was wide open by now and Pepe curled a shot into the top corner to spark a long, loud celebration in the away end.

An elusive three points were within our grasp and they were secured when a flowing move involving Mesut Ozil, Aubameyang and Pepe ended with the latter clipping in a cross for Aubameyang to volley home.
