Arsenal trounce West Ham 4-1 in EPL

The previous Lyon man might be hoping to proceed his sturdy kind when Arsenal host Atletico Madrid within the first-leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday evening.

The Scot claimed that, although Arsene Wenger's exit announcement may have played a part in Arsenal's improved performance, the buck stopped firmly with his team.

He's believed in us, he's backed us and given us all these opportunities over the years. What he did for many years for the club is unbelievable so all the fans, all the people who work in this club and all the players, they have a lot of respect for him.

"We'll have to wait until he undergoes the medical check on Monday; I wish all the good", Wenger added. We are not thinking about who is coming in next, it is all about doing it for him now and hopefully we can win every single game and finish off with a cup. "That would be the flawless send-off for him".

"We just didn't start the second half as well and they got a foothold in the game".

It was Silva who ran on to Raheem Sterling's pull-back to open the scoring with 12 minutes gone, and he who provided the perfectly weighted pass from which Fabian Delph squared for Sterling to score the second four minutes later.

It was 4-0 within 10 minutes when, after Sterling had been felled by Federico Fernandez inside the area, Fabianski managed to turn Gabriel Jesus' penalty on to a post only for Bernardo Silva to convert the rebound from a tight angle.

The first goal came from Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye in the 11th minute, while Burnley forward Ashley Barnes equalized in the 62nd.

The recently turned 31-year-old is eyeing a place in Gareth Southgate's plans for Russian Federation this summer; however, placed yet more doubt in the watching on England boss' mind by gifting Stoke City a point during their clash with the Hammers on Monday by spilling a shot into the path of Peter Crouch.
