Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his 13th goal of the season as Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1. — AFP/VNA Photo LONDON — Arsenal caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg believes a weight has been lifted off his players' shoulders after a three-goal blitz in nine second-half minutes beat West Ham 3-1 on Monday to end the Gunners' worst winless run in 42 years.

However, Arsenal suddenly sparked into life after Gabriel Martinelli scored his first Premier League goal as Nicolas Pepe finally started to deliver on his club record 72 million pounds fee by curling home a brilliant second, before crossing for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to secure all three points.

Real Madrid's Karim Benzema (right) heads the ball to score his side's second goal against Athletic Bilbao during the Spanish La Liga football match. (Photo source AP/Bernat Armangue) Benzema has been one of the few bright sparks in an otherwise dreary campaign for the European champions and it was his second-half treble that proved the difference at the Santiago Bernabeu. Victory moves Madrid four points behind Atletico in second, while Bilbao stay seventh, with their chances of sealing a spot in the Europa League dented. However Zinedine Zidane's side stay 13 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona, who beat Real Sociedad 2-1 on Saturday. Benzema's advance in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and surge since the reappointment of Zidane comes in stark contrast to Gareth Bale, who was whistled when introduced as a substitute here and frequently during his 20 minutes on the pitch. For all the impatience of the home crowd, it was Bale who won the corner for Benzema's second and then … [Read more...] about Benzema’s hat-trick fires Real Madrid past Bilbao
