Video: West Ham 3-3 Arsenal: Gunners blow title chance at Upton Park

By on April 9, 2016

Arsenal’s slim title hopes are all-but over after blowing a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with West Ham in a thriller at Upton Park this afternoon.

We opened the scoring in the 18th minute when Alex Iwobi found Mesut Ozil with a fine ball and the German international made no mistake with a low left-footed finish.

It looked like we were cruising to a vital three points when we doubled our lead in the 35th minute – Iwobi again with the assist as he found Alexis Sanchez before the Chilean slotted home for 2-0.

However, in true Arsenal style we collapsed and predictably it was Andy Carroll who caused all the problems as he first headed home a powerful effort for 2-1 in the 44th minute before firing home a deflected effort to level things up on the stroke of half-time.

The Hammers then made it 3-2, and yes you guessed it, Carroll got the goal once again as he completed his hat-trick with another far post header just minutes in to the second half.

Laurent Koscielny gave us hope after turning the ball home for 3-3 in the 70th minute but we couldn’t find the winner so we’re left trailing leaders Leicester City by 10 points with just six games remaining.

Here are the highlights:
