Martin Atkinson has been appointed as the referee for Sunday’s Premier League opening fixture against West Ham United.

The Gunners will host the Hammers at Emirates stadium in a bid to begin their challenge for title with all three points.

Apart from a 6-1 victory at Everton in 2009, Arsenal have not made a habit of flying start on the opening day of the campaign in recent years.
