Arsenal are aiming to win their eighth home league game in a row as they take on West Ham United this afternoon, which would be their best run at home since 2005.

The Gunners will be fairly confident of ending this long wait, with Arsene Wenger’s side enjoying a fine recent record against today’s opponents, having won 11 and drawn 2 of their last 13 games against them.

Although Sam Allardyce has previously been known for frustrating Arsenal and turning his Bolton Wanderers side into their ‘bogey’ team back in his time at the Reebok Stadium, he has been unable to stop the rot, with his team conceding eight goals in their last two visits to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal have not always looked at their most comfortable since moving to the Emirates Stadium in 2006, and an eighth win in a row today would certainly go some way to helping them turn the ground into a fortress as they did at their previous home Highbury.
