West Ham United take on Arsenal at London Stadium, with both sides desperate to come away with all three points to boost their aspirations of qualifying for continental football in 2022/23.
David Moyes’ men will be keen to get back to winning ways and atone for their UEFA Europa League semi-final first-leg loss to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday. Winning just one of their past four Premier League games, the Hammers will seek to bounce back with a bang at home to one of their London rivals.
On the other hand, Arsenal look to have sorted out their recent dip in form. Back-to-back wins over Chelsea and Manchester United have put them in a commanding position to secure the UEFA Champions League qualification. Mikel Arteta will be eager to make it three wins on the bounce to strengthen their bid for a top-four finish.
This match promises to be full of excitement, with plenty at stake at the top end of the Premier League table. Alongside this, there is a course of further incentive of some local bragging rights due to both sides being from the English capital, making this clash an intriguing one for fans and neutrals alike.

West Ham Arsenal predicted lineups
West Ham have something of a defensive crisis on their hands, with Craig Dawson unavailable for selection against Arsenal due to pick up red card away to Chelsea last weekend.
Kurt Zouma will be back in contention after returning to action in midweek, whilst Angelo Ogbonna and Issa Diop remain out with long-term injuries. Declan Rice may be used to plug the gaps in central defense due to multiple absences in that particular area, depending on the Moyes system uses.
West Ham predicted lineup (3-4-3): Fabianski (GK) – Johnson, Zouma, Cresswell – Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku – Bowen, Antonio, Fornals.
As for the visiting side, Takehiro Tomiyasu may be restricted to a place on the substitutes bench due to only recently recovering from a calf problem, despite returning against Manchester United last Saturday.
Bukayo Saka should also be available for the match, as the youngster was only withdrawn against the Red Devils as a precaution. Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney are the only other injured players of note, with both out for the rest of the season.
Arsenal predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale (GK) – Cedric, Gabriel, White, Tavares – Elneny, Xhaka – Saka, Odegaard, Smith-Rowe – Nketiah.

West Ham Arsenal betting odds
Both West Ham and Arsenal carry a significant threat going forward and will rely on their key players to come up with the goods and break down the opposition backlines. For the Hammers, Jarrod Bowen has been in blistering form this campaign and will be odds-on to add to his 19 goal contributions in 32 games on Sunday.
Conversely, the Gunners have recently stumbled across a new goal-getting hero, with Eddie Nketiah scoring twice away to Chelsea in a vital recent win. The 22-year-old looks to be full of confidence and will be a huge threat to Moyes’ side if he gets space and time allowed to him to do damage.
