Giroud later assisted on forward Theo Walcott’s go-ahead goal in the 77th minute from the right side of the box. Just six minutes later, Walcott assisted winger Santi Carzola on his deep goal from way outside of the box to cap the scoring.
The Gunners were down 1-0 early in the first half after Irons midfielder Mohamed Diame dribbled past the back line and fired a goal to the top right corner from the left side of the area in the 21st minute. Diame then was issued a yellow card in the 22nd, one of three for West Ham on the day.
Arsenal poured on their offense, firing off 21 shots with seven on goal, and also earned 16 corner kicks to West Ham’s four.
