Arsenal is doing good and making some improvement if we are to see their current performance than the beginning of the season. Lacazette’s goal brought happiness to the Emirates Stadium. Earlier, the manager of the Gunners told to focus on the FA Cup this season. Because it is still uncertain for them to take part in the next season of the Champions League. The first defeats in the Premier League in the season might be a major fact and main obstacle. But their recent performance is good enough. Though earlier today in the EPL match at their home venue, they were about to lose points.
After consecutive two victories, the team of Mikel Arteta was about to lose the points. But in the 2nd half, the French star Lacazette was grounded as the substitute and changed the picture of the game. Based on the goal of the French forward, against West Ham United, the Gunners got the comfortable victory at the end. However, the Gunners are still holding the 9th position with 40 points after the 28th round.
At the Emirates Stadium, in the Premier League match earlier today, Arsenal won by a 1 – 0 goal. At the opponent’s venue, in the 2nd minute of the game, West Ham could go ahead. From outside of the box, the shot of Bowen was stopped by the post. The Gunners took control of the game gradually after stopping the first wave of the opponent team.
Arsenal made several attacks but they could not finish the attack well. So, the Gunners could not score goals. But West Ham made a number of counter-attacks and took the exam of the Arsenal’s defence. In the 10th minute of the game, the guest team got a chance through a counter-attack. Into the box, Antonio went with the ball but bad luck. He could not pass the ball perfectly and so, the chance was missed.
