- West Ham are in action just three days after their Europa League semi-final first-leg defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt, but with the tie still in the balance, David Moyes is expected to heavily rotate his squad here.
- Craig Dawson is suspended, but the likes of Declan Rice and Michail Antonio are likely to be afforded rests ahead of one of the biggest games in the club’s history this coming Thursday in Germany.
- Arsenal backed up their win over Chelsea with another fantastic display, beating Man Utd by three goals to one and leaving themselves firmly in the driving seat for Champions League football next season.
- Mikel Arteta has a minor doubt over Bukayo Saka, who played on against United whilst injured, but the signs are pointing towards the England international being available for selection.

The reality is that whilst West Ham remain in the Europa League, their Premier League commitments come firmly second place in their list of priorities, which has and will likely continue to cost them when it comes to domestic results. One point across their last three Premier league fixtures is testament to that and when factoring in the form of Arsenal, who are on the back of consecutive victories then backing the Gunners in this London derby has to be favoured.
Tip: ARSENAL TO WIN
