Imperious home form
Arsenal will welcome a second straight home fixture to carry on their momentum before the Christmas period.
Arsenal’s remaining matches this year are all winnable but comparing Arsenal’s home record to their away record is like comparing night and day.
A win over West Ham would see the Gooners move up to fourth no matter what with Manchester United’s match being called off, a fact Arsenal will surely be more than aware of.

Hammers losing grip on the top four
After a fantastic 3-2 victory over Chelsea a couple of weeks ago, West Ham followed this up with a drab 0-0 draw away to Burnley.
Before the Chelsea win, the Hammers had only claimed one point in their last three matches and the pressure must now be weighing on West Ham with anyone from eighth upwards priming themselves for a run at the top four.
A win at Arsenal will give West Ham some breathing space but for how long?
Arsenal vs West Ham United predictions
Both sides will come into this one desperate for a win as there is far more on the line than just capital city bragging rights.
West Ham are on patchy form and while the same could be said about Arsenal to an extent, there is no doubt they are a much better side on their home turf. This is why we predict Arsenal will win.
Arsenal have kept clean sheets in their last three home games, but these were against strugglers, Southampton, Newcastle and Watford. There should be goals in this one possibly from both sides which is why we predict over 2.5 goals in this match.
