Arsenal v West Ham: The Brief

After two of the toughest opening fixtures you could ask for, there is a very different feel to Saturday's clash against West Ham United.

We head into the game with plenty to build on from the defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but also with the knowledge that we are under pressure to claim our first win of the season.
After all, the Hammers have only beaten us once in 22 games and are - like us - at the start of a new era under Manuel Pellegrini and with a host of new faces to bed in.
Much of the pre-match chat has revolved around Jack Wilshere's return to Emirates Stadium, but as far as Unai Emery will be concerned, that is simply a sub-plot: all the matters is getting off the mark with a convincing win.
You’re in the right place for a comprehensive preview of the game. Scroll down for team news, match stats, an expert view of our opponents and an exclusive chat with Unai.
