Antonio’s pace took him clean away from two Arsenal tackles out wide and his low cross was expertly steered home by Lingard.

And the Manchester United loanee then turned provider just 60 seconds later, as his quick free kick caught the Arsenal back line AWOL, and Jarrod Bowen forced past Bernd Leno.

The Hammers smelt blood from there on, as Tomas Soucek poked home Antonio’s flick on to make it 3-0, before the Czech star deflected home an own goal at the other end.

Mikel Arteta’s side did try to force the issue after the break as Issa Diop brilliantly cleared away Alexandre Lacazette’s effort.

And the Gunners continued to live a charmed life late on as West Ham conceded a second own goal when Craig Dawson skewed home Calum Chambers’ cross.
