The Gunners are seeking to keep their perfect start to 2019 going when they make the short trip to the London Stadium Arsenal have made an emphatic start to 2019 and will seek to keep it going when they face West Ham in Premier League action on Saturday.
Unai Emery’s side were dealt a stark reminder of how far behind the very elite they remain as they lost 5-1 to Liverpool in December but have bounced back in impressive form, recording thumping three-goal wins over Fulham and Blackpool.
They remain very much in the hunt of the Champions League, and with Chelsea wobbling will aim to increase the pressure on their neighbours by winning against the Hammers.

The focus will be on Marko Arnautovic when West Ham host Arsenal. He has made it clear he wants West Ham to let him move to China and it will be fascinating to see if he is in the right frame of mind against Unai Emery’s side, who have welcomed Hector Bellerín, Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal and Mesut Özil back to training. Arsenal, who are pushing hard for a place in the top four, will hope the forward’s focus is elsewhere.
No one knew what Unai Emery thought of the squad that he was inheriting at Arsenal when he arrived in the summer. Even when the first game of the season came around, a home match against champions Manchester City, it was clear that Emery was still figuring out how many of the players would — or wouldn’t — fit into his plans.
