Hammers Gun Down The Arsenal

Hammers Gun Down The Arsenal

ARSENAL: Lehmann, Gilbert (Flamini 27), Djourou,Campbell (Larsson 45), Senderos, Ljungberg,Diaby (Bergkamp 71), Silva, Pires, Henry, Van Persie.
Subs Not Used: Almunia, Hleb.

WEST HAM: Hislop, Clarke (Fletcher 76), Ferdinand, Gabbidon,Konchesky, Benayoun (Newton 66), Mullins, Reo-Coker,Etherington, Harewood, Zamora (Ashton 73).
Subs Not Used: Bywater, Sheringham.

There's crisis and there's ... errr ... crisis. Relagation is obviously a bummer, but this season is starting to be a culture shock to the Reds of North London.

'They don't like it up 'em', and the pressure is starting to get to those used to glory at Highbury. Arsenal were undone by some more poor defending, as Sol Campbell's mistake let in Nigel Reo-Coker to net the opening goal on 25 minutes, but credit to a West Ham who are starting to believe that Europe is more than just a possibility.

Former Spurs man Bobby Zamora soon made it 2-0, and although Thierry Henry poached his club-record 151st league goal, and Robert Pires later set up a grandstand finish, Matthew Etherington's 81st-minute effort sealed all three points.

Dean Ashton made his debut when he came on for Zamora late in the game, and with Teddy Sherringham sat on the bench, how Pardue is wallowing in a wealth or riches.
