The Premier League clash between West Ham and Arsenal was an entertaining one as the Gunners returned to winning ways with the help of record signing Nicholas Pepe.
Ivorian international Pepe provided a goal and an assist for Arsenal as they came from behind to beat West Ham 3-1 in front of their home fans.
The Arsenal record signing was thereafter named the man-of-the-match for the game which saw the Gunners end a barren run of nine games without a win in all competitions.

The North Londoners had not won a game in over two months in the Premier League daring back to the lone goal victory at home to Bournemouth on October 6.
Since the victory over Bournemouth, Arsenal had gone seven games without a win in the Premier League.
West Ham United took the lead in the first half through Italian international center-back Angelo Ogbonna and the hosts kept that advantage until the halftime interval.
Arsenal produced one of their worst 45 minutes in the first half but they were much improved in the second half which produced a spell of three goals in nine minutes with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli, record signing Nicholas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang getting on the scoresheet.
