West Ham United will be looking to complete a Premier League double over title hopefuls Arsenal when the two sides meet at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Not since the 2006/07 season have the Hammers been able to defeat Arsenal both home and away in a single campaign, when Marlon Harwood and Bobby Zamora grabbed the goals in 1-0 wins.
West Ham have already defeated the Gunners twice this term, triumphing 3-1 at home in the League Cup and then 2-0 at the Emirates in the league, and the Irons will be eager to make it a hat-trick in front of the live television cameras.
The match will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK.
The game will be played at the London Stadium with a kick-off time of 14:00 GMT on Sunday 11th February 2024.
Bet Builder 28/1
West Ham or Draw - Double Chance @ 11/8
The formbook suggests this should turn out to be an Arsenal win, with the Gunners eyeing a fourth win in a row and West Ham without a victory this year.
However, the Hammers have drawn four of their six matches in 2024 and the London Stadium has become a fortress for them, with just Manchester City and Everton coming away with victories this season.
David Moyes has seen his side go unbeaten in their last 10 home assignments, beating the likes of Arsenal, Freiburg and Manchester United, and that should provide hope they can at least avoid defeat on Sunday.
While the Gunners are back in the title race after three straight wins, there are still question marks over their away form after only narrowly edging past Nottingham Forest 2-1 in their last road match.
Before that triumph, Mikel Arteta's side had gone four away games without a win and they have already tasted defeat at the London Stadium this season, going down 3-1 in the League Cup.
James Ward-Prowse to score anytime @ 6/1
West Ham's decision to sign James Ward-Prowse in the summer has proven to be a shrewd one, with the midfielder registering five goals and six assists from 22 league appearances.
The Englishman has scored two goals from his last three games, both of those penalties, and the fact he takes the spot-kicks and free-kicks increases the chances of him scoring.
Emerson to be booked @ 2/1
The final leg of our Bet Builder is for West Ham defender Emerson to get booked.
The 29-year-old Italy international has received seven yellow cards in the league and two in the Europa League this season.
With the pace that Arsenal have in the shape of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, Emerson could find himself wanting in a foot race and be forced to chop down his opponent.
Lucas Paqueta and Michail Antonio are ruled out of this clash, though the latter has returned to training and is working his way back to full fitness.
Alphonse Areola's substitution against Manchester United last time out was only precautionary and he is available for selection.
Bukayo Saka and Oleksandr Zinchenko are both expected to play despite picking up knocks last time out, while Takehiro Tomiyasu should be available after returning from the Asian Cup.
Gabriel Jesus is still a doubt after missing the win over Liverpool with a knee issue. Thomas Partey and Jurrien Timber both remain sidelined due to injury.
West Ham have gone six games without a win in all competitions; a barren run that witnessed the club exit the FA Cup at the hands of Bristol City.
Arsenal's three-game winning streak heading into this clash has them back in the Premier League title race.
The Hammers have won the last two meetings against the Gunners, whose last victory at the London Stadium came in May 2022.
