It has been difficult to guess what either of these sides will do on a weekly basis this season, however, Lawrenson does believe that Unai Emery’s men will overcome the hosts 2-1 at the London Stadium.
“In the Premier League, the Hammers’ form has been very up and down in recent weeks, but the same could be said about the Gunners,” he wrote on the BBC Sport website. “I am going for an Arsenal win here, but it is clear that Unai Emery still has a lot of work to do.
“He has only been in charge for half a season and I think that, when they come up against the top teams, the same problems still remain. The main issue is at the back.

West Ham do have talent in their ranks and there’s no doubt that players of the quality of Marko Arnautovic and Felipe Anderson can cause this vulnerable Gunners backline problems.
