Laying down an early marker and impressing many on their return to Premier League action last weekend, Arsenal will welcome London rivals West Ham to the Emirates on Saturday night.

Enjoying what has been a real summer purple patch after lifting both the Community Shield and the FA Cup at Wembley last month, the Gunners opened the 2020/2021 campaign with a 3-0 romp away at top-flight returners Fulham seven days ago.

On the flip side, while West Ham might have managed to cruise past League One outfit Charlton on the EFL Cup earlier in the week, the Hammers could only open the New Year with a sluggish 2-0 defeat at home against Newcastle last weekend.

With an unenviable fixture list over the next six weeks, last year’s relegation scrappers could be in for another tough test when they travel across London on Saturday night.

Including back-to-back defeats against the Gunners last season, it is worth noting that Arsenal have won six of their last seven matchups against West Ham and a similar result can be found priced at 11/20 with Ladbrokes.

Can anyone stop Aubameyang?

Already lifting two pieces of silverware this summer and opening the new campaign with a 3-0 romp away at Premier League returners Fulham last weekend, the mood in Arsenal’s camp only continues to soar.

With many shocked by the immediate impact that Mikel Arteta has had since making a return to the Emirates earlier in the year, there is no doubt that fans around North London will be hugely excited by the news that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new three-year deal.

Opening his account in West London last weekend, the former Borussia Dortmund striker has only cemented his spot as Arteta’s MVP and has enjoyed his own stunning run of form this summer.

Leading Arsenal to both the FA Cup and the Community Shield at Wembley last month, Aubameyang has now found the net in his last four straight competitive appearances for Arsenal, bagging six strikes.

You might be interested to know; the Gunners’ skipper can be found priced at 4/6 with William Hill to mark his new deal with a strike at the Emirates on Saturday night.

Moyes’ defensive crisis

Although West Ham might have managed to land themselves a 3-0 romp against League One outfit Charlton on EFL Cup duties in midweek, it does not cover what is an uneasy atmosphere around the London Stadium.

Still yet to bring in a single new arrival during the summer transfer window, David Moyes’ men opened the 2020/2021 campaign with a sluggish 2-0 defeat at home against Newcastle and the Hammers have a real reputation for their rather glaring issues at the back.

Signing off their pre-season preparations with a shock 5-3 drumming at the hands of recently relegated Bournemouth earlier in the month, many feel that their leaky defence will see them at the heart of another relegation scrap this season.

Still set to face off against the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester and Tottenham after their trip to North London this weekend, West Ham could be in for another long night’s work on Saturday night.

You might be interested to know, the Hammers have conceded at least a pair of goals in seven of their last nine matchups at the Emirates and they can be found priced at 8/13 with Unibet to once again ship over 1.5 goals.
