August 26, 2018 12:30 am
Arsenal celebrated their first Premier League win of the season under new manager Unai Emery after coming from behind to beat London rivals West Ham United 3-1 in an action-packed match on Saturday.
A Nacho Monreal strike, Issa Diop’s own goal and Danny Welbeck’s stoppage-time effort enabled the Gunners to bounce back from their opening two defeats after Marko Arnautovic had fired West Ham into a 25th-minute lead.
Spaniard Emery, who took over at Arsenal in the summer from long-serving manager Arsene Wenger after a two-year stint at French champions Paris Saint-Germain, was happy with the outcome but acknowledged there was plenty of room for improvements.
In other results EPL results Manchester City drew 1 all with Wolves, Leicester City edged South Hampton 2-1, Bournemouth drew 2 all against Everton while competition leaders Liverpool beat Brigton 1-0 and Cardiff City held Huddersfield to a nil all draw.
