'I don’t know how they will cope': Ex-Arsenal ace predicts tough trip to West Ham Unai Emery's side have conceded 31 goals already this season, often outscoring their opponents Paul Merson believes Arsenal will struggle to contain West Ham United’s front three of Felipe Anderson, Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “Arsenal struggle to stop goals going in and West Ham’s best form of defence is attack, “I don’t know how Arsenal will cope with the likes of Carroll, Arnautovic and Anderson, but the Gunners are good going forward so it makes for an entertaining game.” Hector Bellerin is set to return to first team action after his injury lay-off and will tasked with keeping Anderson quiet on the flank.

And, although that will make for an entertaining game, Merson believes his former side will struggle to deal with the pace and power of West Ham’s attacking trio.

However, keeping goals out has been a tough task for Unai Emery’s side, having conceded 31 in the league already.

The Brazilian has eight goals this season and set up transfer rebel Arnautovic to score in the reverse fixture at the Emirates.

Arsenal are currently fifth in the table and know that an emphatic victory could briefly move them into the Champions League places.

The London rivals will meet at the London Stadium in the early kick-off on Saturday afternoon.
