The resurrected Arsenal continued to revive the season after defeating West Brom 4-0, bringing even more dire conditions to Buggy.
The second half of Alexandre Lacazette’s brace was added to the amazing strikes of Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka.
The Gunners overwhelmed Albion, scoring three consecutive Premier League victories under Mikel Arteta.
Albion remained in second place with one win, scoring 12 goals in three Sam Allardyce home games.
Arsenal only climbed to 11th place, but at least right next to the top six, sitting three points behind Chelsea to play more games.
Teams with 8 points or less from the opening 17 games did not avoid being demoted from the Premier League, and Albion was out of class.
Héctor Bellerin and Saka tested Sam Johnstone in the opening 10 minutes, setting the dominant tone in the first half.
Pierre Emmerich Aubameyan also almost scored his 100th appearance in the Premier League, but couldn’t get Saka’s teasing low cross in a distant post.
Albion’s only chance was when Matt Phillips hit Bernd Leno after Matheus Pereira’s cute pass.
However, Arsenal took the lead in the 23rd minute, proving why Tearney was such an asset when appropriate.
Fullback defeated Darnell Furlong twice, embarrassing the defender on the left and cutting inward before firing high over John Stone from 15 yards.
Five minutes later, it was 2-0 that Gunners tore the host into the ribbon with a sharp move.
After exchanging the pass for Saka and Lacazette, Emile Smith Rowe was slipped by the French and Saka, who had been running unmarked, tapped in.
Like Leeds, the Gunners threatened to riot at the Hawthornes, and John Stone had to turn over Lacazette’s cross after hitting Grady Diangana.
Albion was once again out of their depth, and John Stone denied Lacazette two minutes before the break after the striker defeated Branislav Ivanovich.
The host needed a response, and Callum Robinson fired just to stop their celebration with the offside flag after Pereira hit the post after the restart.
However, Arsenal closed the point with two quick fire goals from Lacazette.
When Semi-Ajai turned the 61-minute cross into his post, Saka again caused confusion, Semi-Ajai blocked Smith Rowe’s follow-up strike, but Lacazette ate up the rebound.
The second time, 64 minutes later, was as easy as the striker converting Tierney’s cross from close range.
John Stone added a fifth to stop Aubameyan and save Willian before Leno denied Rekeem Harper the comfort of a downtime.
