Arsenal posted their biggest Premier League away win by routing sorry West Ham 6-0 at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The result saw the Gunners move back to within two points of leaders Liverpool.

An excellent opening 45 minutes saw Mikel Arteta's rampant Gunners race into a 4-0 lead, thanks to goals from William Saliba, Gabriel, Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard, leaving the home side shellshocked.

Saka scored his second after the break, before former Hammer Declan Rice made it 6-0 with a superb long-range shot against his former club.

Raya - 6.5/10. Faced very little trouble, but some trademark likeable passing.

White - 6.5/10. West Ham failed to force Benny Blanco to reach top gear.

Saliba - 7.5/10. Winning balls in every area of the pitch, including a brilliant effort to nod home a lovely opener.

Gabriel - 8/10. Europe’s highest scoring centre-back strikes again. He’s now Arsenal’s second highest scoring defender of all time.

Kiwior - 6.5/10. I was a tad worried ahead of the game about his match-up against Kudus, but it turned out to be a complete damp squib. Decent showing. 

Rice - 8/10. Dream scenario for the Gunners. Absolute peach of an effort and a comprehensive performance.

Odegaard - 8/10. Orchestrating everything and pressing like a mad man. Nice collection of assists.

Havertz - 7/10. Good movement, good hold-up, good aerial display. All we’ve come to expect.

Saka - 8/10. 100 G/A at 22 years old. Special, special player.

Trossard - 7.5/10. Fantastic goal and a reassuringly assured performance at CF.

Martinelli - 6.5/10. Wasn’t at his ephemeral best, but West Ham really didn’t ask him to be.

Nelson - 6.5/10. Game was long dead before he crossed the white line.

Nketiah - 6.5/10. Could see he was desperate to get on the scoresheet, but the energy of the match had long been extinguished before he could.

Elneny - 6/10. Thought he was gonna curl a Rice-esque finish in for a second.

Cedric - 6/10. God loves a trier.

Nwaneri - 7/10. So wonderful to see him get on the pitch. A real, real talent on our hands.
