EPL: Arsenal Thrash West Brom As Lacazette & Co. Dig Club Out Of Relegation Battle

Arsenal is getting their tune back after back-to-back wins and a 4-0 thrashing of West Bromwich which takes them 12 points off the relegation zone to 11th on the EPL standings on Saturday.

AllNews understands that Mikel Arteta was almost shown the door after a very poor run in the English top-flight but recent wins have taken the heat off him and he can now finally get a breather.

A rare Kieran Tierney goal, a superb team effort finished by Bukayo Saka, and a brace from Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal their third Premier League win in a row as they beat West Bromwich Albion in snowy conditions at the Hawthorns.

Fullback Tierney cut in from the left and curled home his second goal for Arsenal in the 23rd minute, then Saka combined brilliantly with Lacazette and Emile Smith-Rowe before tapping home a simple second for the visitors five minutes later.

West Brom had an early second-half strike ruled out for offside before Lacazette blasted two goals in five second-half minutes as the Baggies' woeful defense, which with 39 goals conceded is the leakiest in the league, fell apart once again.

The win lifts Arsenal to 11th place in the table on 23 points, six points off the European places. West Brom remains second from bottom with eight points after 17 games.

Mikel Arteta had but praise for Alexandre Lacazette again after scoring 5 goals in the last four premier league appearances when he said "His work rate is always there, he's always fighting for the team but he needed that luck for the ball to land in the right moment. I think he's in a great moment, we have to take advantage of that and give him more minutes."
