Arsenal's Kai Havertz and Ben White celebrate with Gabriel as he wheels away after scoring against West Ham

Arsenal thrashed West Ham United 6-0 away on Sunday to stay in the Premier League title chase, annihilating their opponents before halftime.

Mikel Arteta’s team had lost twice to their London rivals this season but led 4-0 at halftime with goals from William Saliba, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel, and Leandro Trossard.

The punishment continued in the second half, with Saka making it 5-0 before former West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, who assisted two goals in the first half, scored his team’s sixth on a day of humiliation for the hosts.

It was a sublime display by Arsenal who wiped off a goal difference deficit to champions Manchester City who they joined on 52 points, although they stay in third place courtesy of scoring fewer goals.

Premier League leaders Liverpool have 54 points.
