Betting Tip: Arsenal @ 6/5 with paddypower

Thibaut Courtois’ excellent form prevented Petr Cech from playing much for Chelsea FC last season, although the Czech has been assured of a starting berth by Arsene Wenger and will line up between the sticks for this London derby against West Ham United.

Cech left Stamford Bridge with a heavy heart, although at the age of 33, he clearly feels the need to be playing out the final years of his career at a Premier League club who can give him the assurances he needs.

Cech and new club Arsenal begin a potential Premier League title assault with a London derby against West Ham at the Emirates. The bookies make the Gunners warm favourites to open with a win, although the Hammers will consider this a good time to be playing this fixture.

After all, you often get strange results when the season begins, with Slaven Bilic hoping that he can motivate his charges to a positive result a few miles away from Upton Park.

Bilic was the visiting manager at the Emirates twelve months ago when Besiktas narrowly lost 1-0 in a Champions League qualifier, with the Croatian having already signed the highly-rated Dimitri Payet from Marseille, while Pedro Obiang is another notable arrival.

Arsenal are highly likely to land the services of Arturo Vidal although perhaps we might not see many more new faces, with the Gunners having a host of exciting midfield players already.

Theo Walcott will add competition for places in attack along with Olivier Giroud who will be looking to feature among the division’s top scorers next season, with the jury out for many people when it comes to the Frenchman.

While Arsenal’s win price is a prohibitive 2/5, you can alternatively back the Gunners to win to nil at odds of 6/5 with Paddy Power.

Cech will be looking to get a first clean sheet under his belt as quickly as possible, with West Ham likely to spend a good deal of this match on the back foot and defending for their lives.

Alexis Sanchez will potentially still be enjoying a rest from the Copa America when this match is played, although there is plenty to like about the multiple talents of Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla. Not to mention the improving Francis Coquelin.
