We’ve an all-London Derby to take in this Saturday evening as Arsenal, who ended the first round of Premier League games top of the table after their 0-3 away win at Fulham, take on West Ham at 8pm.

The Hammers tasted defeat (0-2) at the hands of Newcastle in their opening league game so start week two in 18th with zero points and things do not get any easier here.

The match betting suggests an easy win for Arsenal, who at 1.50, with the draw 4.50 and West Ham 5.75, while this repeat fixture last season ended 1-0 to the Gunners – that can be backed again at 9.00.

In fact, Arsenal have also won two of the last 3 head-to-heads 3-1 so this is another score to have on your radar at 13.00, plus Arteta’s men have only tasted defeat in one of their last 10 games against the Hammers. If you want to take that head-to-head record even further, then it might pay to note that Arsenal have also lost just two of their last 24 Premier League games when facing West Ham.

It’s a game that generally produces goals though as both teams have scored in 10 of the last 16 – this can be backed around 1.75, while 6 of the last 8 repeat fixtures saw OVER 2.5 GOALS – if you fancy a repeat of this, you’ll be rewarded at 1.66.

The scoring markets are dominated by Arsenal’s Aubameyang and Lacazette – the former is 3.40 (1st) or 1.57 (anytime), while Lacazette is 4.33 (1st) or 1.83 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that stinks of an easy win for Arsenal – their FA Cup win of last season seems to have given them a real boast and with West Ham looking a team that are struggling at the moment, then you can expect plenty of punters putting the Gunners in their Saturday doubles, trebles and accas.

But, in a game that often produces goals we prefer to wade in with the 1.66 on offer on their being 3+ goals in the game – something that’s paid out in 75% of the last 8 repeat fixtures.
