ARS Vs WHU Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Same city arch rivals take on each other for a claim on the city.
Where this should have been a closely contested, feisty affair between two clubs hailing from the same city, West Ham’s shambolic form will see this be anything but. The visiting team will be rendered obsolete and redundant by Arsenal across the tie with Arsenal set to walk all over West Ham today.
Its not only down to West Ham’s struggles over the last couple of years in the league or the traditional manner in which this fixture has usually unfolded. The narrative is one peddled after West Ham’s sordid showing against Newcastle United in their season opener, a sorry display which saw them as has become customary now being outshone in very department of the game.
Where West Ham have a bevy of issues to iron before they take to the middle today, Arsenal couldn’t have asked for a more pristine start to the new season. Up against new entrants Fulham, Arsenal doled out a complete performance, one which saw them propel their way to a three goal win without breaking a sweat.
Although not too much can be read into the result with it coming against Fulham, the emphatic manner in which Arsenal schooled their opponents augurs well for the side. It was a performance indicative of what the season could hold for an Arsenal side imbued with a slew of new defensive names.
This will be another lopsided win in Arsenal’s favour. They’ll clean out West Ham today, a side which was for way too long failed to offer anything of note now.

ARS Vs WHU Dream11 Picks
Lukasz Fabianski was once again asked to wage a lone battle for West Ham. And as ever, he refused to be dissuaded by a lack of support from his counterparts to banish a string of shots to keep his goal protected for a majority of the encounter.
Arsenal’s new signing, Gabriel Magalhaes couldn’t have had a more shaky start to his life at the Premier League club. A misplaced pass was almost converted into a goal by Fulham with Gabriel needing Leno to rescue him from an embarrassing mistake.
The best learn from their mistakes and that’s exactly what the club’s shining new CB did. He didn’t put one foot wrong following that erroneous move to emerge with not only a solid display at the back but a goal as well to his name on his Premier League debut.
With West Ham failing to score past Newcastle United, we hardly envision them traversing past this Arsenal backline. A cleansheet for the home side is extremely plausible to see the trio of Rob Holding, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Kieran Tierney all make way into our setup.
Elsewhere, Ryan Frederick’s attacking knowhow will see him be a regular feature up the park for West Ham to see him be the lone pick from the visiting team here.
Willian’s debut for Arsenal couldn’t have transpired in a more scintillating manner than it did against Fulham. He ended up with three assists to his name on the day, a performance which makes him an instant pick for us today.
Declan Rice is still touted to make a move away from West Ham this summer but with his asking price being way too hefty, the midfielder will continue to play his game for West Ham today. He along with Tomas Soucek are capable of winning the ball, pulling off recoveries and winning aerial duels to see both represent us from the side.
His contract dilemma with Arsenal dragged on and on but the club finally confirmed earlier this week that Pierre Emrick-Aubameyang would be staying for three more years. And he’s will eager to celebrate his new deal with a stellar display today as he looks to add to his goal from the previous encounter.
Alexandre Lacazette got a much needed goal in that outing as well to see him make a foray into our setup as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The goals they got the last time around see Aubameyang captain our side while Lacazette is the vice-captain.
