A CAPITAL AFFAIR
Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League London derby between Arsenal and West Ham United.
As Covid cases rise across the country, more Premier League games are being postponed as players testing positive are being made to isolate. Mind you, some players are being made to isolate regardless of their coronavirus status.
Following last week’s disciplinary breach, Mikel Arteta has stripped Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of the Arsenal captaincy, and has stated that the forward will not be selected for a second successive game.
Not that it appears to have affected matters on the pitch. Without their former skipper, the Gunners cruised to a 3-0 win over Southampton on Saturday to end a run of three defeats in four.
And another three points this evening will elevate Arteta’s men into the top four, at the expense of their awaiting opposition.
An 8pm start awaits at the Emirates, and we’ll soon have news of tonight’s teams as part of our continued pre-match build-up.
