Rice scores against former club as Arsenal crush West Ham 6-0

Arsenal thrashed West Ham 6-0, inflicting their worst defeat in 60 years, with Declan Rice scoring against his former team.

Mikel Arteta’s men delivered a ruthless performance, with Bukayo Saka scoring twice and defensive duo William Saliba and Gabriel adding to the tally from set pieces.

Leandro Trossard also found the net, further extending West Ham’s misery.

The defeat was a stark contrast to West Ham’s recent form, having secured back-to-back wins against Manchester United and Arsenal just two months ago.

However, they have since suffered heavy defeats, conceding nine goals without scoring in their last two matches.

Despite some brilliant football from Arsenal, West Ham appeared passive and lacked defensive strength, allowing their opponents to dominate.

The home fans expressed their frustration by leaving the stadium early, with thousands departing before halftime.

While Arsenal displayed clinical finishing, West Ham struggled to mount any significant attacking threat, often losing possession easily and failing to pressure the visitors.
