Matt Withers is joined by Dave Evans, Jacob Ranson and Sports Editor Lee Power for another East London Football Podcast.

Our West Ham United correspondent Dave Evans spoke about their terrific 1-0 victory over Chelsea to only somewhat come back down to earth with a 2-0 defeat to Wolves just days later.

Sports Editor and Arsenal fan Lee Power chimed in alongside Dave Evans to talk about the upcoming clash between the Hammers and the Gunners.

The pair also spoke about whether Manuel Pellegrini is the right man for the job and whether many Arsenal players would even make the West Ham starting line-up.
