Arsenal's trio of summer signings received adulation from Arsene Wenger following tonight's 5-1 crushing of West Ham United.

Lukas Podolski scored a 22nd minute equaliser as well as providing three assists, Olivier Giroud netted twice and Santi Cazorla was also on the scoresheet as the Gunners produced a second-half flurry to win comfortably at the Emirates Stadium.

"They are doing better and better. Podolski had a great goal and some great assists," said Wenger.

"Giroud is getting better and of course Cazorla, we know about him."

The win allowed Arsenal to remain in sixth position, four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, one behind fifth-placed Everton and three ahead of Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion.
