Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta would have been delighted with the performance against Fulham last weekend and he will be hoping to make it two wins from two when they face West Ham on Saturday.
The Hammers are in crisis, with the fans at odds with the board over the lack of funds for transfers, and the 2-0 home defeat to Newcastle on the opening day wouldn’t have helped matters.
In terms of team news, Granit Xhaka is a slight doubt with an ankle problem while Sokratis is also likely to be touch and go after only recently recovering from a calf strain. David Luiz (neck), Pablo Mari (ankle), Calum Chambers (knee), Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring), Gabriel Martinelli (knee) and Emile Smith Rowe (shoulder) are all unavailable.
For West Ham, they have just one injury doubt, with former Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere having rolled his ankle in training the day before the 3-0 win against Charlton in the Carabao Cup.
The bookmakers have this one down as a comfortable win for Arsenal with BetVictor pricing them at 4/7 to get the three points. A draw is 7/2 with Bet365 while a West Ham victory is 5/1 at Betfred.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to Arsenal
