Arsenal visit West Ham today to play a game of football in the Premier League. Ostensibly this is a London derby - both teams do, in fact, play in the same city - but although both teams have long histories in the top flight, each with their share of success, it's not really a rivalry on the scale of several other London clashes. On the other hand, Sam Allardyce is kind of an ass, and they have Andy Carroll, so I'm sure in the next two hours or so something will come up.

I'll update with starting lineups and possible substitutes when they're released. Remember the rules: no illegal streams, keep images to "height=300," use the subject line for all posts, and more than anything, be kind and don't make an ass of yourself.

Enjoy the match, kids.
