West Ham United will be desperate to build on their last result in the Premier League as they secured a point against Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Hammers have turned a corner under Manuel Pellegrini after suffering a disappointing start to proceedings, so they’ll be looking to secure a European spot this season.
Interestingly, West Ham United will welcome London rivals Arsenal to the London Stadium later on today. The Gunners are starting to gain back some momentum and have a point to prove, so the Hammers will be desperate to inflict misery upon them in front of home support.
Therefore, Pellegrini can dig Arsenal a grave by deploying these TWO stars at the London Stadium…
Marko Arnautovic has been the standout performers for West Ham United in the current campaign, with eight goals and two assists to his name at this moment in time.
The Austrian international managed to find the back of the net twice against Brighton and Hove Albion at the London Stadium in their last Premier League outing, so it’s safe to say he is bang in-form.
Therefore, the Hammers’ biggest chance of securing all three points will be through the 29-year-old attacker.
Declan Rice is arguably one of the hottest topics in the whole of English football as he continues to put in world-class performances on a regular basis.
The defensive midfielder has developed into an accomplished passer of the ball and he very rarely lets the opposition get the better of him, which has helped cure the Hammers’ early-season defensive issues.
So, with a very attacking Arsenal side travelling to the London Stadium today, the youngster will be tasked with keeping their star-studded attack under wraps.
