The first London derby will kick off the first Super Sunday programme of the Premier League season as the Gunners take on the Hammers at the Emirates stadium.
Buoyed from an extremely impressive pre-season which saw them win three trophies, including the Community Shield in a narrow victory over rivals Chelsea, will encourage Arsene Wenger's men to prove their credentials for the title early on.
Laurent Koscienly and Santi Cazorla both start today which will be their 200th and 150th league appearances. With West Ham general poor form against Arsenal and with them losing a mid-week game in the Europa League, the aforementioned duo are likely to commemorate their milestone appearances with a win.
