Arsenal ended Seven Matches Winless Spell with a 3-1 win over West Ham.
The Gunners ended a seven-match Premier League winless run as they came from behind to beat West Ham United 3-1 and give Freddie Ljungberg his first victory as interim head coach at the emirate.
The sacking of former manager, Unai Emery had not yielded the expected upturn in fortunes most would have expected, with Ljungberg overseeing a 2-2 draw at Norwich City and a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion in his first two games in charge.
Arsenal’s display had been limp and lifeless in the first half but Gabriel Martinelli’s goal on his full Premier League debut sparked them into life.
A spectacular Nicolas Pepe strike made it 2-1 and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted a cross from the former Lille star for the Gunners’ third goal in the space of nine minutes, a blitz Manuel Pellegrini’s struggling Hammers never recovered from.
