Arsenal will have enjoyed their Monday following a comprehensive 6-0 win over West Ham at the weekend.

The Gunners swept aside the Irons at the London Stadium with goals from William Saliba, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel, Leandro Trossard and Declan Rice. As Bukayo Saka noted, it was a ‘statement’ victory as Mikel Arteta’s team ensured they firmly remain in the title race.

This week offers Arsenal a full period of preparation but the intensity of their schedule soon increases as their Champions League campaign returns. First up, a tricky trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley awaits and then a European clash against Porto.

Mirror Football will follow that journey and have rounded up the latest Arsenal news below.

Declan Rice reveals Arsenal’s special talent

Declan Rice has labelled Ethan Nwaneri a ‘special, special talent’ after the 16-year-old featured in Arsenal’s win over West Ham.

The youngster drew the praise of his teammates after his cameo against the Hammers as the likes of Ben White, Saliba and Saka all showed their support after the teenager posted to Instagram.

Nwaneri last appeared in a Premier League match in September 2022, and is highly regarded by the north London side. So much so it turns out, that Arsenal’s substitutes were calling for his introduction.
