West Ham will be buoyed by their win over Chelsea on the weekend and they will look to make it a double London scalp in the space of a few days as they play host to Arsenal. Arsene Wenger’s men could only manage a point away at Southampton on Sunday and they could well face the same problems at the London Stadium.

The last ever London derby to be played at Upton Park was between West Ham and Arsenal in April 2016. Arsenal went two up with excellent goals from Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez and looked to be cruising before Andy Carroll scored a hat-trick. Arsenal fought back for a point with a goal from Laurent Koscielny.
