Arsenal claimed a stylish 4-0 win over West Brom at a snow-covered Hawthorns to continue their Premier League resurgence on Saturday.
After a seven-match winless run in the top flight prior to Christmas, the Gunners defeated Chelsea at home and Brighton and Hove Albion away and were full of confidence against Sam Allardyce’s struggling side.
Fine first-half goals five minutes apart from Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka – the first a sublime solo strike, the second a flowing team move – made a mockery of tricky conditions and moved Arsenal out of sight.
Alexandre Lacazette added a comical clincher and later doubled his tally as a third straight victory boosted Mikel Arteta’s men up to 11th, now suddenly looking up the table rather than back towards the relegation scrap in which West Brom remain mired.
