Arsenal climbed to seventh in the Premier League table with a hard-fought 2-0 win against West Brom on Monday night.

The Gunners recorded a goalless draw away to Chelsea last time out, and followed that up with another positive result as Alexandre Lacazette scored twice at the Emirates.

Lacazette opened the scoring with a close-range header after Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick fell the the French striker, and the Emirates’ new hero made it two with a well-placed penalty after the interval.

However, it did not all go the Gunners’ way as Tony Pulis’ Baggies missed a host of chances and felt aggreived to be denied what looked a certain spot-kick early on for Shkodran Mustafi’s challenge on Jay Rodriguez.

The Hammers were edging the game until Michail Antonio was forced off with a suspected groin injury and Slaven Bilic opted to change the setup with the introduction of Andy Carroll. Less than 10 minutes later, following two clumsy mistakes from the substitute, and Harry Kane scored twice and were cruising at half-time.

Christian Eriksen added a third on the hour mark which looked to settle matters before Javier Hernandez scored and Serge Aurier picked up a second yellow card, a first red card for Spurs in 84 Premier League games, to set up a frantic finale. Cheikhou Kouyate added a second but it was not enough.
