Gabriel Magalhaes and Leandro Trossard extended the lead with a third and fourth goal respectively before halftime.

Saka struck again to make it five, before Declan Rice scored a remarkable goal for West Ham.

Declan Rice has faced his former club twice this season, suffering defeat on both occasions. There were concerns about how West Ham supporters would react to his move to a London rival, and he was met with boos in both matches.

Anticipating the reaction, Rice has taken on the role of a set-piece taker for Arteta’s team. When the opportunity for a corner arose early in the game, Rice had to walk over to the densely packed West Ham supporters.

However, as he approached, the boos subsided when Rice initiated applause. Recognizing this gesture, the home fans responded with applause for their former captain and European cup winner.

After scoring a superb goal, Rice was substituted and applauded by the West Ham fans. It was evident from his expression that he didn’t necessarily relish adding to the host’s woes on the scoreboard.
