Arsenal produced a stunning second-half display to thrash West Ham 5-1 on Wednesday night and the Gunners are now no bigger than 13/10 with Boylesports to earn a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Having slumped to successive defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsene Wenger's side knew there was no more margin for error and despite falling behind in tonight's rearranged Boxing Day fixture to a fine strike from Jack Collison, his side found their form, equalising through Lukas Podolski's 25-yard screamer.

Olivier Giroud scored his first goal in six games to put the hosts in front just after the restart, before German forward Podolski tore the Irons apart, charging down the left to set up Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Giroud again as Arsenal romped out of sight before the hour.

Arsenal remain in sixth but are now four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, who are 5/4 with BetVictor to finish in the Champions League places, while fifth-placed Everton are as big as 8/1 with Ladbrokes.
