West Ham are set to complete the hattrick over Arsenal this season, according to a famous Hammers fan.

David Moyes’ side take on our London rivals this Sunday in the buoyed by the fact we have already beaten Mikel Artetas side twice already, the last being a memorable 2-0 win at the Emirates earlier in the season.

It’s expected to be a tough encounter this weekend though, with Arsenal now back in the title race following their victory over Liverpool last weekend.

Providing their views on the match this weekend on BBC Sport, Irons fans and star of the new Paramount series Sexy Beast, Stephen Moyer, is holding our hope that Moyes’ side can dent the Gunners title charge once again.

“There is still always an edge to this game, and it is a fun one, which adds a bit of magic dust,” said the actor. “It is going to be a really tight game and I am going to go for a 2-2 draw… although if Mohammed Kudus is fit and our boys in midfield start playing we can hurt them.

“You know what David Moyes is going to do, he is going to try to keep them out for 40 minutes then try to nick one just before the break, and then defend for the next 45 minutes. Who knows, we could win it… oh, go on then, let’s go with that. I’ve got to do it, haven’t I! 2-1.”

Pundit and fellow England striker Chris Sutton though believes it’ll be Arsenals day, and says that they will find a way this time to overcome our Hammers.

“West Ham beat Arsenal at the Emirates at the end of December, when the Gunners huffed and puffed but just could not score.

“The Hammers will have exactly the same approach at home, looking to sit in and counter, and using their threat at set-pieces too.

“This time, though, I think Arsenal will find a way through – and carry on their celebrations.

“Mikel Arteta’s side will have a point to prove after what happened last time against West Ham, but their motivation here is more about the fact they have just put themselves in the thick of the title race, and they cannot afford to slip up.

West Ham last did the double over the Gunners in the 2006-07 season, and I think they will have to wait a bit longer to do it again.”
