Sanchez rapid hat trick as Arsenal thrashes West Ham 5-1

Sanchez rapid hat trick as Arsenal thrashes West Ham 5-1

ARSENAL beat West Ham 5-1 at the London Stadium, but who was man of the match?

Andy Carroll and Oxlade-Chamberlain got in on the act late on, but Sanchez ensured the headlines would belong to him with a wonderful dinked finish for his hat-trick.

He set up Mesut Ozil for Arsenal's first and then scored three goals himself in the space of 14 second half minutes, with the first a thing of beauty.

"He's quick, he is hard to close down, he can dribble and has a killer instinct".

"It can only give me a lot of confidence getting my first goal for West Ham and I go into every game thinking I can score and now I have got my first one, hopefully many more will follow", Fletcher said. He is quick to close down. "But we also have to be good and unsafe when we have the ball".

It took 25 minutes for Arsenal to make the breakthrough as Sanchez skipped past Winston Reid's desperate challenge before squaring unselfishly for Ozil to tap into the empty net. We were always risky.

The Chilean striker made it five goals in his last two appearances to keep Arsene Wenger's side hot on the tail of Premier League leaders Chelsea. "If you look through the top scoring strikers in Europe, they are almost all South American".

Now he faces a situation where he won't play, even though both of his two rivals for the position are injured. I think today it's even more hard because you get quickly hammered by everybody on social media.

Arsenal will field the same team that defeated Bournemouth in the league 3-1 to take on West Ham.




He concluded: "We kept the ball well".

"It was a convincing performance and a strong result", he said. It's a bit like when we moved to the Emirates. It will be interesting to analyse that.

For example, they are 5/4 (888sport) to be in front at the break on Saturday, while Bwin quotes them at 4/7 to open the scoring.

However, Wenger showed sympathy for his counterpart Slaven Bilic.

It was decided on Thursday that Cazorla needed an operation despite the fact Wenger had said last week he was hopeful the Spain global would be back in contention in a fortnight.

Manchester United eased into the EFL Cup semi-finals with a comfortable victory over West Ham, despite manager Jose Mourinho watching on from somewhere within the stadium.

On the other hand, fourth bottom West Ham appear to be having the breath sucked out of them by the twin failures of adapting to their new home and recapturing last year's compelling form.

"After the slow start, we recovered and looked good but you can't do the same", manager Slaven Bilic said.
