Hello and welcome to football.london’s live coverage of West Ham United vs Arsenal at the London Stadium. The Gunners go into the clash following two impressive wins against Manchester United and Chelsea, with Mikel Arteta’s men in the driving seat in the race for the top four.
The Gunners currently occupy the last Champions League spot, and sit two points ahead of north London rivals Tottenham. Arteta’s side are only six points behind Chelsea, and if results go their way there is no reason why a third placed finish cannot be achieved.
Standing in their way on Sunday afternoon is West Ham United, however. The Hammers have been impressive this season and currently find themselves in seventh place.
David Moyes will still be hoping his side can qualify for next season’s Europa League, and West Ham can move up to sixth place with a win at the London Stadium. However, the Hammers may have one eye on their Europa League semi-final second leg tie with Eintracht Frankfurt next Thursday.
You can follow all of the live coverage as and when it happens in our dedicated live blog below. Arsenal writers Chris Wheatley, Kaya Kaynak and Chris Davison will be updating you throughout the day.
