A six-goal thriller ended all square as Arsenal fought back from three goals down to earn a point against West Ham United in the Premier League.

It was Jesse Lingard who opened the scoring as he put West Ham in the lead with a thunderous strike in the 15th minute.

David Moyes' side doubled their lead just two minutes later as Jarrod Bowen found the back of the net with a low shot, which Bernd Leno should have done saved.

West Ham scored their third goal of the evening in the 32nd minute and it seemed Arsenal were in for a humiliation. Vladimír Coufal delivered a cross into the box, which Michail Antonio met and headed towards the goal, which took a slight touch on Tomas Soucek enroute to the net.

However, Arsenal pulled one back six minutes later as Alexandre Lacazette's half-volley deflected off Soucek and went into the West Ham net.

The Gunners halved their deficit in the 61st minute through another West Ham own goal as Craig Dawson inadvertently smashed the ball into the back of his own net after Calum Chambers sent a cross into the box.

Arsenal completed their comeback in the 82 minute as Lacazette headed home after meeting an excellent Pepe cross.
