Arsenal managed to secure a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in their English Premier League clash on Monday night.

Two goals from the Gunners record signing Alexandre Lacazette gave them a much needed win, their third at home this season.

West Brom might have felt aggrieved in the first half when referee Bobby Madley refused to award a penalty after Shkodran Mustafi brought down Jay Rodriguez with a sliding challenge.

West Brom continued to press, and Nacho Monreal saved a certain Baggies goal seven minutes before half-time when he cleared Grzegorz Krychowiak’s header off the line.

The feeling got worse in the second half, when Arsenal were themselves rightly awarded a spot-kick after Allan Nyom barged over Aaron Ramsey close to the byeline. Lacazette stepped up and calmly slotted home the ensuing spot kick.

Victory for the Gunners lifts them to seventh in the table, one point behind fourth-placed Tottenham and five behind leaders Manchester City.
