West Ham vs Arsenal: Premier League


Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at the London Stadium on Wednesday

Arsenal salvaged a late draw against  Southampton on Sunday and will be desperate to return to winning ways when they play West Ham in a London derby at the London Stadium on Wednesday night.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger spoke ahead of the game about the issues his side face when teams get men behind the ball and congest the midfield against his attack-minded side.

On a high from Saturday’s shock win over Chelsea, West Ham will be looking to claim another London scalp when they host Arsenal at the London Stadium.

It could be a good time for David Moyes’ to face the Gunners, who compounded the misery of their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United with a woeful display in a 1-1 draw at Southampton on Sunday.

Certainly West Ham will be optimistic of a better result than in the same fixture last season, when Alexis Sanchez scored a hat-trick in a 5-1 win in Stratford that had Slaven Bilic facing questions over his future.

Moyes has lost 17 of his 28 games against Wenger, more than against any other manager, but with confidence on the up in east London he might be optimistic he can find a fifth win against the Gunners.
