Arsenal are back in Premier League action on Sunday afternoon, when they travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham.

Mikel Arteta’s side are targeting a first Premier League title in 19 years. They suffered a setback last time out, as Liverpool held them to a 2-2 draw at Anfield. Yet Arsenal are still six points clear of champions Manchester City in second having played a game more.

Arteta will be without William Saliba for the West Ham clash, with the Frenchman nursing a back injury. Despite Saliba’s absence, Arsenal fans will be confident of beating their London rivals. Here are the latest headlines from the Emirates ahead of that big game.

West Ham midfielder Flynn Downes believes they are “due” a win against one of the Premier League’s so-called ‘Big Six’.

Downes said: “We are are due a result against a big team and I think it’s coming.

“We got a big win against Fulham the other day so it’s positives and we’ll take that into Sunday. Look at our team – our team is a good team. We don’t fear them, they are coming to our home, so we’re going to take them on and that’s it.”
