West Ham vs Arsenal: Prediction and Betting Tips
West Ham close for a first ever UCL spot
The Hammers are very close to UEFA Champions League qualification for the first time in their history. David Moyes’s side are having a great season as they sit at fifth place in the Premier League standings.
West ham have been adopting an attacking style of play scoring seven goals in their last three home games and have a 93% scoring rate in the matches they played in the Olympic Stadium this season.
West Ham weren’t very convincing in their last match at Old Trafford where they lost to Manchester United 1-0. The Hammers had one of their worst performances this season and they must bounce back quickly as they prepare for Sunday’s derby.
In form Arsenal looking to extend their unbeaten run
Mikel Arteta has worked very hard this season and was under immense pressure at one stage of the season when Arsenal had lost momentum and fell back on the table. The Gunners still haven’t recovered from that slip and are still in the tenth position.
The team improved though and have won twice in their last three games collecting seven points from those three games. Newcomer Martin Odegaard has shown that he is an added value to the team.
Arsenal beat their city rivals Tottenham in the last London derby coming from behind after Spurs went ahead in the first half. Arsenal had more chances with 13 goal attempts in a tight match that saw the Gunners come on top to secure their 41st point of the season.
- West Ham’s 57% of home matches ended in both teams scoring
- West Ham have scored in all of their last five matches
- Arsenal have scored in all of their last five matches
- Arsenal had clean sheets in just 36% of their away matches
West ham vs Arsenal Prediction
This will be a close match, to say the least. Even the bookies are paying high rates for wins by either team. West Ham are keen to bounce back from their last defeat and win and keep their hopes alive for a UCL qualification.
Arsenal on the other hand are not content with their tenth position and will fight in any way they can to put on a winning run that could take them closer to the top five.
Considering the urge of both teams to win the match and their attacking style of play we believe there is a big chance that we see both teams score in this match.
