West Ham United have lost more Premier League matches against Arsenal (31) than versus any other opponent, while only against Everton (34) have the Gunners enjoyed more wins in the competition than they have over the Hammers (31).
Welcome to our live blog of Arsenal against West Ham.
Mikel Arteta’s Gunners will be looking to make it two wins from two to start the season after a convincing 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage last week.
In addition to that, since the Gunners last played, club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penned a new three year deal believed to be worth upwards of £350,000-a-week.
West Ham meanwhile be looking to get their first points of the season on the board, after a disappointing 2-0 home loss to Newcastle to start the campaign.
For Arsenal, the aim will be to press on tonight after an excellent first game, in a bid to mount a serious challenge for the top four places this season.
On the other hand, West Ham’s immediate priority will be to pick up points quickly, in order to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference on the news of Aubameyang signing a new contract, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said:
“I think the big reason Auba’s staying is because we have an incredible football club.
“He feels how much love he’s got from the fans.
“I played my part but the club and the people that have been able to put a package together for him to stay deserve credit.
Kick off is at 8pm and team news will follow shortly.
