West Ham welcome Arsenal to Upton Park for the last time on Saturday and it’s fitting therefore that this game could be one of their most significant meetings.

Arsenal still have title aspirations (13/2 with Ladbrokes), while West Ham have an outside chance of making it into the top four (14/1 with Bet365).

As for the match itself, the Gunners are evens with Bet365, while the Hammers are as big as 3/1 with BetVictor and the draw is available at 11/4 with Bet365.

Since losing their first two home games of the season, West Ham are unbeaten in their subsequent 13 games here (W7, D6), winning five of the last seven.

They also won the reverse fixture 2-0 win at the Emirates and look too big at that 3/1, especially as Arsenal have only won two of their last 7 league away games.

We also strongly suggest backing West Ham getting a half a goal start on the Asian Handicap at 11/12 with BetVictor.

This is the Hammer’s third consecutive London derby – both the others (Chelsea & Crystal Palace) finished 2-2 and we anticipate plenty more goals in this game.

This fixture has a strong trend of high scoring matches, with five of the last six finishing with three goals or more – so back the Over 2.5 Goal option at 3/4.

We also suggest backing a few high scoring Correct Scores at big prices – try backing West Ham to win 3-1 and 3-2, both at 33/1 with Bet365, plus 2-2 at 14/1.

Finally, we want to back in form Dimitri Payet each-way to score the first goal at 9/1 with Bet365 (just 7/1 with most bookmakers).
