The Hammers head into the game against the Gunners on the back of a really poor run of form. They have won just one of their last nine league outings.
Their London rivals are not faring any better though.
Arsenal are winless in seven Premier League games, and they have fallen down to 11th spot in the table, just four points clear of the relegation zone.
Both West Ham and Arsenal seem to lack any kind of identity to their play. And in truth, the two London sides are in real trouble.
A defeat for either side tonight really would put them in a precarious position.
West Ham beat Arsenal last time the two sides played each other in January and the Gunners haven’t won away to the Hammers since 2016.
The game kicks off tonight at 20:00 and can be seen exclusively live on Sky Sports.
