Arsenal vs West Ham takes place on Saturday in what is sure to be an intense London derby. Kick off is at 12.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
West Ham have gotten off to an impressive start to the season, and if before the season started West Ham boss Sam Allardyce had been offered 11 points from his opening six Premier League games he would have taken it.
The Hammers are in 7th place in the English Premier League, which is a place above their North London rivals who lie in 8th. Arsenal got off to a good start to the season but had fallen away in their past few games. The Gunners now have just 9 points from their opening six matches.
West Ham could bring back striker Andy Carroll into the starting eleven following his injury a month ago. The England striker has come back from injury sooner than expected and made a short appearance against QPR in the Hammers' last match.
Meanwhile, Arsenal's central defender Per Mertesacker could be making his comeback after recovering from a virus. However, first-choice keeper Wojciech Szczesny (ankle) and midfielder Abou Diaby (thigh) both remain out.
Allardyce will be sure to have highlighted Arsenal's apparent weakness in dealing with crosses throughout their opening games, and he could try to exploit that weakness by using Carroll if included.
Despite West Ham having home advantage at Upton Park, Arsenal do have a fantastic recent record against the Hammers. They are unbeaten in their last eight games against their East London rivals, winning six and drawing two of those games. Furthermore, West Ham have failed to score in their past three Premier League encounters with Arsenal.
