SOMETHING has to give when Arsenal host West Ham on Saturday.
New bosses Unai Emery and Manuel Pellegrini have failed to pick up a point in their two opening Premier League games in charge.
Here is everything you need to know about Saturday’s 3pm clash at The Emirates…
The Armenian has come up with three goals and five assists in his last 13 games for the Gunners and his attacking threat should be key to their hopes against the Hammers.
Lukasz Fabianski heads back to his former club with the aim of trying to keep a clean sheet that would helped the Hammers get a first point on the board.
Mkhitaryan and the likes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are likely to make the Pole a busy man on Saturday.
Best of enemies
Emery told Jack Wilshere over the summer that his game time would be limited if he stayed at Arsenal and the midfielder chose to end his 17-year stay by swapping north for east London.
Wilshere will be desperate to show that his skills are missed at The Emirates.
The stat that matters

West Ham (4-3-3): Fabianski – Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Balbuena, Masuaku – Noble, Sanchez, Wilshere – Yarmolenko, Arnautovic, Felipe Anderson.
3-1 to Arsenal. Home advantage and their marginally superior firepower should be enough for the Gunners to secure their first win of the season.
