The match between both sides have always been a blockbuster and the two attacking sides will surely produce goals.

4. Sarri expected to continue his easy ride in the league

5. West Ham seek first victory in five matches
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have been the worst team so far in the new season after losing all of their four opening matches.
