Arsenal travel across London to face West Ham United who have not lost in 13 Barclays Premier League matches this season at Upton Park on Saturday.

The Hammers were the first team to inflict a defeat on Arsène Wenger’s side this term at the Emirates Stadium after winning 2-0 in the opening game of the season.

However, ahead of tomorrow’s reverse fixture, West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is confident his side can do a double on their London rivals for the first time since 2007.

The Croatian tactician also took time to explain his game plan after watching the Gunners against Watford and Everton.

“I am impressed with their last couple of games, Watford at home and at Goodison. They played really well,” Bilic said at Friday’s pre-match press conference.

“They changed their team a bit. They’ve got a little bit more pace up front and they have options. It clicked in those games and they scored an early goal which helps everyone, especially teams like Arsenal.

“To beat Arsenal you need a complete game. When they have the ball you have to reduce the space between the lines and when you have the ball you have to be confident.”
