LONDON: Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was disappointed with his side’s inconsistent performances despite bouncing back from three goals down for a 3-3 draw against West Ham.

A lackluster start saw the Gunners conceded three times in the first 32 minutes through Jesse Lingard, Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek.

But Soucek and Craig Dawson’s own goals saw West Ham cut their lead and Alexandre Lacazette’s header

saved one point for Arsenal.

West Ham remain fifth in the Premier League, two points behind fourth -placed Chelsea.

Arsenal’s hopes of hunting for a Champions League ticket next season now depend on their success in the Europa League after falling nine points behind Chelsea.

“I was very disappointed because I couldn’t accept the pattern of the team’s play like in the first half.

“What I hope is that we play at the same level as in the second half. We can score six or seven goals.

“We often fall behind because we have two faces. The first face is to give a goal to an opponent and not do what they should,” Arteta said.
