Hammers and Blues clash, as the Gunners host the Toffees


Sunday’s Premier League action in gameweek 6 focus on two capital clashes, as West Ham host league leaders Chelsea and Arsenal host inconsistent Everton. Here is more details on Sunday’s games:

Blues look to continue hundred per cent record

Chelsea may the short trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham in a London derby in the day’s early kick-off.

West Ham kick-started their campaign last weekend with a superb 3-1 victory at Everton. The victory ended the Hammers four-game losing streak in the top-flight.

The victory with have lifted spirits massively in the Hammers camp. After picking up their first win of the campaign Manuel Pellegrini’s side are likely to be a much tougher opponent for the visitors. Despite that positivity, the Irons head into this tough clash having won just one of their last six home games in the Premier League.

Chelsea heads to the London Stadium in good spirits having won all five of their Premier League games this season. The Blues are big favourites to make it six wins out of six, which the Blues have achieved on two previous occasions in the top-flight.

Maurizio Sarri’s team have scored at least twice in all five of their Premier League games so far. West Ham’s vulnerable defence will be tested to the fullest by the likes of Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud.

Chelsea have a good away record in the Premier League dating back to last season, as the Blues have won five of their six away games in the English top-flight. The visitors have also managed to score two or more goals in four of their last six away outings.

Gunners face favourite opponents at the Emirates Stadium

In the late kick-off, Arsenal host Everton at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to record their fourth straight Premier League victory.

The Gunners have now recorded four straight wins in all competitions after a 4-2 win over Vorskla on Thursday in the Europa League. Unai Emery’s side has managed to score at least two goals in all three of their latest Premier League victories. However, the Gunners have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven top-flight games dating back to last season.

The team from north London have a strong recent record at the Emirates in the top-flight, winning six of their last seven matches on home soil.

Everton are also one of Arsenal’s favourite visitors, as the Gunners have beaten the Merseysiders on their last five visitors to the Emirates in the Premier League. The home side has also won 17 of their last 21 outings on home soil against the Toffees.

After starting the league campaign with a four-game unbeaten run, Everton suffered a disappointing 3-1 home defeat against West Ham last time out. The loss means the men from Merseyside have picked up just one win from their last seven outings.

The visitor’s recent away form has been shocking, as the Toffees have won just three times in their last 29 games on their travels in the top-flight. To make matters worse the Merseysiders have never won at Arsenal in the Premier League.
