Archant London correspondents preview big London derby

The Premier League season is drawing to an exciting climax and European hopefuls West Ham United welcome title outsiders Arsenal to the Boleyn Ground in Saturday’s televised lunchtime match this weekend.

Slaven Bilic’s Hammers upset their rivals on the opening day of the campaign at the Emirates and, sitting in sixth place, still harbour hopes of qualifying for a Europa or even Champions League spot, as well as an FA Cup final appearance.

Arsene Wenger’s Gunners, currently third, have work to do to leapfrog leaders Leicester to claim the title, but they can still claim a place in the Champions League for a 17th successive season.

Archant London correspondents Ben Kosky (Arsenal) and Dave Evans (West Ham) look ahead to the big London derby in our latest podcast.
