Arsenal will be looking to make it back-to-back victories to begin the Premier League campaign when they welcome West Ham United to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Confirmation of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s new deal should ensure a spring remains in their step.
Date, time, and venue
Arsenal vs West Ham is scheduled for an 8 pm BST kick-off on Saturday, September 19.
This match will be played behind closed doors at Old Trafford with no fans due to being present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi, and Pablo Mari remain sidelines for the Gunners with Granit Xhaka missing last weekend’s win over Fulham with a knock.
Manuel Lanzini is fit again for the Hammers with Sebastien Haller pushing for a start after two goals midweek.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
This will be the 143rd meeting between these two sides with Arsenal winning 68 of those. West Ham has 35 victories of their own – but just one in their last 10 meetings.
Prediction: Arsenal 3-0 West Ham
The Gunners showed their lethal touch from the off against Fulham and a newly-signed Aubameyang at the Emirates will certainly fancy his chances of adding to his tally.
