Arsenal head coach Unai Emery says his side “need to improve” in transition after the unconvincing Gunners recorded their first win under the Spaniard with victory over West Ham at Emirates Stadium.
The defensively frail hosts came from behind to lead in fortuitous fashion on 70 minutes as Hammers debutant Issa Diop diverted Alexandre Lacazette’s volley across the area into his own net.
Hector Bellerin then picked out an unmarked Danny Welbeck in added time and the substitute turned to lift his effort past Lukasz Fabianski.
Arsenal were caught out on the counter for the opener, West Ham captain Marko Arnautovic slotting low past Petr Cech after exchanging passes with the impressive Felipe Anderson, who was allowed to carry the ball from deep.
