How to watch an Arsenal vs West Ham live stream, as Mikel Arteta’s side look to make it two wins on the bounce.
It’s been a good week for Arsenal. On Saturday they brushed Fulham aside, running out 3-0 winners at Craven Cottage to top the Premier League table after matchday one.
Three days later they were celebrating something seemingly more mundane but equally significant: Pierre-Emerick’s Aubameyang’s decision to put pen to paper on a new three-year contract.
Concerns over handing a bumper new deal to a 31-year-old can wait for another day. Aubameyang is Arsenal’s only world-class player and his decision to commit his future to the club is worth cheering. Had he chosen to depart, it would have significantly set back Mikel Arteta’s rebuild.
Arsenal were excellent on the opening day, demonstrating a lesser-spotted combination of defensive solidity and attacking incision.
They will of course face stiffer challenges than Fulham in the weeks and months to come – although perhaps not on Saturday evening when West Ham cross the capital.
The Hammers are in chaos, with senior players – including the club captain Mark Noble – openly questioning the decision to sell Grady Diangana to West Brom.
The pre-summer plan to bolster the backline with new additions hasn’t yet been realised, as Newcastle learned to their benefit with a 2-0 win at the London Stadium last weekend.
Even the most optimistic of Hammers won’t expect anything from this trip to Arsenal, which David Moyes may privately view as an occasion for damage limitation.
Arteta won’t want to make too many changes from the Fulham game, although Dani Ceballos could start in midfield to add a little more creativity in central areas. That could be particularly important given that Moyes will instruct his players to sit deep in a low defensive block.
West Ham will look to Michail Antonio to lead their counter-attacks, but there is a danger of the lone frontman becoming isolated up top against Arsenal’s three-man backline.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Premier League/Sky Sports Main Event/Sky Sports Ultra HD in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.
Use a VPN to watch an Arsenal vs West Ham live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don’t want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jamie Vardy goal. And that’s where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
