West Ham United’s record against Arsenal doesn’t make for pretty reading.

The Hammers have lost 12 of their last 14 matches against the Gunners in all competitions.

They’ve not beaten their London neighbours at home since a 1-0 success at Upton Park in November 2006.

Saturday’s victory over Chelsea should give the home faithful reason for optimism. But we think that the visitors will have too much class in a fixture where they traditionally excel.

It’s 6/10 for a Gunners victory, with West Ham tantalisingly priced at 17/4. You can back the draw at 3/1.

The Irons may have lost eight of their last 10 home meetings with the North Londoners, but they always tend to score.

Both Teams to Score has landed in the last five matches between the two sides at Upton Park and the London Stadium. It’s 4/6 to happen again this evening.

You can double up on that market and get Arsenal to Win and Both Teams to Score at 21/10.

Last season the Gunners emerged from Stratford as 5-1 winners.

Alexis Sanchez bagged a hat-trick in that match to go alongside his strike in the 3-3 draw between the two sides in 2016.

He’s 7/2 to break the deadlock and 6/5 to score Anytime.

Current form suggests that Olivier Giroud could also find the net. The Frenchman is the same price as Sanchez to bag at any point during the contest.

For the hosts, Marko Arnautovic is 10/3 to make it two goals in two games after his winner against Chelsea on Saturday.

On past trends, we’re also expecting this match to be a high-scoring encounter.

The two clubs have shared 15 goals in their past three meetings.

It’s 31/20 for there to be Over 3.5 Goals and 18/5 for the game to see five goals or more.

The #GetAPrice market is also well-stocked with potential fancies.

We like the look of Arsenal to Win, Both Teams to Score, Under 9.5 Corners and Under 35.5 Booking Points at 15/2.
