Arsenal take on West Ham tonight in an important festive London derby in the Premier League.
While the Gunners nabbed the coveted title of ‘top at Christmas’ by earning a solid draw away at rivals Liverpool, against the Hammers they can secure first place at the official halfway mark of the campaign.
David Moyes’ West Ham pose a considerable threat while on a run of five wins and a lone defeat in their last seven league games, including a 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Saturday.
It has been a bit tougher on the road but the Hammers often rally their best performances against the big guns.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Arsenal vs West Ham is scheduled for an 8:15pm GMT kick-off tonight on Thursday December 28, 2023.

The match will take place at the Emirates Stadium in north London.
