Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta sent a title warning to Man City and Liverpool after beating West Ham 6-0. Arteta believes his team is gaining momentum in the Premier League title race following their impressive win over West Ham, marking their biggest away win in the Premier League. West Ham had no answer to Arsenal’s attack, with William Saliba scoring the opening goal and setting the tone for the match.
Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Magalhaes, and Leandro Trossard all found the back of the net before half-time. Saka added another goal in the second half, and Rice scored a long-range sixth to add insult to injury. Arteta stated, “We are maintaining and building some momentum now.
Performances have been strong as well as results in recent weeks. We need to maintain that because other teams are doing that as well. We are not the only ones.”
On the other hand, it was a tough day for West Ham and their manager David Moyes. Moyes admitted, “It was a really poor day for us, very difficult to explain really. Arsenal played extremely well, give them credit, but it’s difficult to explain how we played so poorly.
We’re normally a lot stronger, we didn’t show that today. I’m disappointed with the way we fell apart when the game hadn’t looked as if it was going to be as big as that.” Moyes also reflected on West Ham’s recent struggles, acknowledging the disappointment and expressing understanding for the fans’ frustration.
West Ham’s recent losses to top teams and their winless streak in 2024 have contributed to a challenging period for the club. Despite the current difficulties, Moyes emphasized the positive progress the club has made in recent years and expressed confidence in their ability to overcome the current setbacks. In summary, Arsenal’s dominant performance has bolstered their confidence in the Premier League title race, while West Ham faces challenges and seeks to navigate through a difficult period.
