West Ham supporters have been drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern in the last few hours after seeing their side dismantled 4-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
David Moyes’ men went into their encounter with the North London giants unbeaten in their previous three league games, picking up a win over Southampton and draws with Chelsea and Stoke City to pull clear of the relegation zone. And they were very much in the game at the Emirates on Sunday when Marko Arnautovic cancelled out Nacho Monreal’s opener midway through the second half, only for a brace from Alexandre Lacazette following Aaron Ramsey’s strike to seal a comprehensive success for Arsene Wenger’s side.
