Two defeats in a week sees Arsenal slip to 4th in the league although, the officiating has been poor in both games.  Arsenal took the lead through a Walcott goal but Arsenal failed to capitalise on the poor City defending. An offside which wasn’t given changed the match with Sane the scorer before Sterling won it for City.

Arsenal come from behind to collect the three points and move up to first in the Premier League.  Xhaka conceded a penalty for an elbow but it looked harsh on the replays. Walcott levelled the match before goals from Ӧzil and Iwobi secured the points. The only real concern is the injury to Mustafi.

Arsenal take the three point to make it back to back wins and move up to second. Arsenal controlled the first half and would have been disappointed to only take a one goal lead into half time. The first half goal was scored by Ӧzil but Sanchez laid it on a plate for him. Arsenal let West Ham into the game and would have equalised if it wasn’t for a Koscielny clearance.  Arsenal doubled their lead through Sanchez who then quickly added a third. Carroll pulled one back before a terrific goal by Oxlade-Chamberlain made it four.  Sanchez then got his hat trick with a wonderful fifth and took the match ball home.

Arsenal remain unbeaten since the opening day defeat and close the gap at the top to three points. Arsenal were not at their scintillating best but three points are all what matters.  Arsenal took an early lead through Sanchez after Bournemouth gifted them the lead however, Bournemouth levelled after Monreal conceded a penalty. Arsenal regained the lead through Walcott before Sanchez finished the game in injury time.

A late header from Giroud saw Arsenal steal a point after an abysmal display. After a tepid first half Mata gave United the lead before an Oxlade-Chamberlain cross found Giroud to head home. The display was poor from Arsenal throughout with the whole team not performing.
