Kick Off – 12.45 pm Saturday 9th April 2016 – Live on BT Sports 1

West Ham host Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off, with the home side looking to continue their challenge for a top four spot.

The home side drew 2-2 with London rivals Crystal Palace last time out at the Boleyn Ground. The visitors took the lead through Damien Delaney, before Manuel Lanzini and Dimitri Payet scored goals to put the Hammers ahead.

The home side were rather harshly reduced to ten men on 67 minutes, as Cheick Kouyate received his marching orders. The Eagles capitalised on their one man advantage with substitute Dwight Gayle grabbing an equaliser.

The sending-off was definitely a turning point and Slaven Bilic’s side will see the draw as two points dropped in their pursuit of a Champions League spot this season. The Hammers are now sixth in the table and three points behind fourth-place Manchester City.

Arsenal have now won consecutive Premier League games after winning 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium against Watford last time out. Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi, Hector Bellerin and Theo Walcott all got on the scoresheet to mark an emphatic victory.

The weekend results mean that the Gunners are 11 points behind league leaders Leicester with a game in-hand. However it looks like the team from North London have hit form too late to mount a realistic challenge.

The visitors have doubts over full-back Sam Byram and centre-back James Collins, while central midfielder Cheick Kouyate is suspended following his sending-off against Palace. Pedro Obiang may replace Kouyate in midfield.

This is a difficult game to judge. Arsenal seems to be just finding form with the season reaching its climax. West Ham were unlucky to only draw against Palace with that unfortunate sending-off. I can see this game ending all-square.
