There’s certainly no doubt that Mikel Arteta was left extremely happy with his Arsenal players performance against West Ham United today. Not only did Arteta watch his side win 6-0, but he also saw them finish well and show a ruthless ambition to continue scoring.

Perhaps the likes of Declan Rice, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka were the best performers on the day, if you’re only choosing three. It was a well-executed game plan from start to finish, with Arsenal once again making the most of their set pieces.

Defenders, William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes headed home from dead-ball situations, which once again emphasises just how threatening Arsenal are from set-pieces.

But with all that being said, one performance seemed to really stand out to Arteta.

When speaking to Sky Sports after the West Ham rout, Arteta felt particularly lucky to have a player like Saka at Arsenal.

He said: “When you talk about consistency at his [Bukayo Saka] age… what he has done in the last two or three seasons is remarkable. His attitude, his quality, what he delivers every week…it’s really difficult to find. That’s why he is so important to us.”

Of course, Saka will be absolutely crucial to any title bid Arsenal look to mount this season.

And fortunately, with such a comfortable lead, Arteta was able to bring off and rest several of his key Arsenal players at the London Stadium.

It was a remarkable afternoon, one that displayed Arsenal’s progress as much as West Ham’s poor form right now. And if the result sees David Moyes under further pressure, it’s quite the opposing situation at the Emirates.

Another big scoreline and a crucial victory suggests the Gunners are starting to hit top form just at the right point of the season.
