Arsenal 0-2 West Ham: Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate secure shock win

cheikhou-kouyate-west-ham-arsenal_3335362Petr Cech endured a nightmare debut as Arsenal were beaten 2-0 at home by West Ham in their Premier League opener.

Cheikhou Kouyate put the Hammers ahead late in the first half when he beat Cech to a free-kick and flicked a header into the empty net.

Cech was beaten again in the 57th minute when he was wrong-footed and unable to keep out Mauro Zarate’s shot from outside the box.

The Gunners hardly threatened a comeback as the visitors, for whom 16-year-old Reece Oxford started in midfield, held out to secure all three points in Slaven Bilic’s first top-flight match in charge.
