Arsenal return from the winter World Cup’s enforced pause looking to continue the good work they produced in the first half of the season, and they face a West Ham side currently down in the dumps and peering nervously over their shoulders at the relegation zone. Three points are huge for both of these sides.

The Gunners celebrate the festive period top of the tree at Christmas for the first time since 2007/08, and Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side can take their table-topping form into the second half of the campaign and keep reigning champions Manchester City at bay — five points currently separates the two sides.

It’s been a season of contrasting fortunes for the Hammers who, despite investing nearly £200m in the squad over the summer, look completely bereft of inspiration and cohesion. David Moyes has a huge job on his hands to turn the tide, and what better way to bounce back than by potentially causing an upset against the division’s current pace-setters.

Arsenal vs West Ham match stats

With news of Gabriel Jesus’ injury at the World Cup, Arteta may have to turn to Eddie Nketiah. The current no. 14 may not be a bad alternative. In fact, he has scored 10 goals in his last 10 starts in all competitions at the Emirates, notching those strikes from just 15 shots on target.

Bukayo Saka will also be looking to carry on post-World Cup having top scored for England in Qatar with three goals. As things currently stand, no Arsenal player has been involved in more Premier League goals than Saka this campaign, who has bagged four times and provided six assists.

Moyes knows his side will need to be industrious and resolute in the middle of the park if West Ham are to keep a lid on Saka and Co. In Tomas Soucek, he has a player who can certainly disrupt their flow. Only Joao Palhinha (65) and Tyler Adams (52) have registered more tackles than Soucek (47) in the Premier League this season.

West Ham’s last win at the Emirates came during the club’s final season at Upton Park, the 2015/16 campaign. That 2-0 triumph on the opening day of the campaign saw Dimitri Payet make his debut and provide his first assist for Cheikhou Kouyate’s opener, before Mauro Zarate pinged one bottom bins. It’s been one-way traffic since that momentous day.
