On Sunday 11 February, Arsenal came to London Stadium in the 24th round of the English Premier League. Although the Hammers had won the previous two matches, they lost 0:6. “I have never experienced such a big defeat,” Vladimir Coufal told the club’s website after the match.
West Ham have already found the recipe for Arsenal, one of the candidates to win the championship, twice in the current season. The Hammers won first in the EFL Cup eighth-final, after which they also scored a very important league victory.
At the London Stadium, however, the course of the match was very different. The first goal of the game was scored by defender William Saliba, assisted by former West Ham player Declan Rice from a corner kick.
The Gunners managed to add three more goals before the end of the first half, with Bukayo Saka, Gabriel and Leandro Trossard scoring in succession. The score was 0:4 and some of the home fans were already leaving the stadium.
After the change of sides, the game was basically over. Bukayo Saka added his second goal of the game, and in the 65th minute the aforementioned Declan Rice also scored a wonderful goal. He finally scored one goal and two assists against his former employer.
West Ham have not won any of their last five league games and are currently eighth in the Premier League table. On the other hand, coach Mikel Arteta’s team scored a very important victory and is only two points behind the leader Liverpool.
I’ve never seen such a big defeat told Coufal
“I have never experienced such a big loss and I hope it was my last such experience. It was embarrassing for me and the team when Arsenal passed the ball and their fans celebrated every pass,” Vladimir Coufal told the club website after the game.
“We can only apologise to our fans and thank those who stayed until the final whistle. But I also understand those who left, because I personally would have probably left as well,” added the thirty-one-year-old right-back.
David Moyes’ team will have a chance for redress on Saturday when they travel to the ground of rescuing Nottingham Forest.
