West Ham United vs Arsenal Match Preview
Arsenal have recovered well from their capitulation at Liverpool and are fancied to further enhance their excellent head-to-head record against West Ham.
The Gunners had a poor Christmas with only one win in five before and after the focal point of the festivities, the low point being some catastrophic defending in their 5-1 loss at Anfield.
But 2019 has started better for Unai Emery’s side, who ran out 4-1 winners against Fulham on New Year’s Day and then saw off Blackpool with the minimum of fuss in the FA Cup.
The stats above highlight how well Arsenal have fared against West Ham in recent years and three more points are expected to come their way, even though their London rivals are in decent form themselves.
Up into the top half of the Premier League table after a bad start to the campaign which included a 3-1 defeat in the reverse fixture, the Hammers have got key man Marko Arnautovic back in the team and scoring goals following his recent injury.
However, Manuel Pellegrini’s side are still very much a work in progress, as exemplified by disappointing recent 2-0 defeats against Burnley and Watford, and so odds-against about Arsenal is too good to resist here as they try to close the gap to the top four.
