Robin van Persie scored twice as ruthless Arsenal put struggling West Ham to the sword in a match tipped to be Avram Grant's last as Hammers boss.
The Dutchman expertly rifled home Theo Walcott's pass before teeing up Walcott to crash in from close range.
Carlton Cole shot straight at Wojciech Szczesny and glanced a header wide in rare attacks for the disjointed hosts.
Van Persie netted his second from the spot after Wayne Bridge fouled Walcott to cap a sparkling Gunners display.
The comprehensive defeat is expected to signal the end of Grant's tenure as Hammers boss, as it is widely rumoured former Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill will replace the Israeli.
Arsenal took full advantage of an uncertain performance from an injury-hit Hammers side playing in an almost funereal atmosphere at a normally boisterous ground, after a day that seemed set to be Grant's last stand.
