After a successful assignment in the third round of the FA Cup, West Ham’s net assignment is much trickier as they welcome Arsenal for a Premier League tie this Saturday. The hammers will be at home for the third match running, and will hope to carry on the good momentum that has seen them remain unbeaten in the two matches at the London Stadium so far.
Before the 2-0 win over Birmingham in the Cup, they played to a 2-2 draw against Brighton here. Javier Hernandez has been in good form for them and will be in the starting I, probably paired with Arsenal nemesis Marko Arnautovic. Former Arsenal man Samir Nasri will also be an exciting name on the line up.
The Gunners will be keen to keep the fight for a top four place alive. Their forward line is performing just fine, but it is their makeshift defence that they should be worried about. Can they patch something up to collect maximum points away?
