Arsenal finally stopped the rot in the Premier League and secured three points with a vital away win against West Brom yesterday. The Baggies rarely threatened and Arsenal were dominant for the vast majority of the game, and the result was no less than we deserved though the scoreline was very tight.
The game was a vast improvement over some of the performances this season, and with the three points in the bag most fans and players took to social media to express their delight. Other notable events of the match were also mentioned, such as the Danny Welbeck goal and the controversial banner in the away end. Our injury problems also took a share of the spotlight, with three more players picking up knocks.
Here is a collection of the best tweets from yesterday:
