West Ham Prediction – Can West Ham pile misery on Arsenal?

A lot is riding on this London clash against Arsenal for Monday night’s hosts, West Ham and also manager, Manuel Pellegrini, as his side have lost 6 of their last 8 matches overall in the Premier League and another defeat to Arsenal here could see the pressure intensify upon The Hammers boss.

Amidst the recent flurry of defeats to Newcastle United, Burnley, Tottenham and Wolves, West Ham did manage to register an unlikely looking 1-0 win away at high-flying Chelsea which has seemed to give Pellegrini a stay of execution but the hosts cannot afford too many more defeats.

West Ham sit fifth from bottom in the top flight and just 1 point above Southampton and the bottom three as they prepare for the visit of Arsenal on Monday night, so the onus will be on West Ham to go on the attack here as they look to pull away from the bottom three.

In addition, despite losing 3 of their last 4 matches at home, West Ham will sense that Arsenal could be here for the taking as they too have suffered some disappointing results of late.

Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal find a way back?

Arsenal’s disappointing sequence of results in the Premier League continued on Thursday night when they were handed a 2-1 defeat at home by Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, which means Arsenal have now had to endure a 7-match run without a win in the top flight.

This poor run of form has already cost former manager, Unai Emery, his role of coach at the club and caretaker-manager, Freddie Ljungberg could find himself next in the firing line as The Gunners failed to beat second from bottom club, Norwich City, in a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road which was followed by the disastrous loss at home to Brighton.

Results away from home have also been poor this season by Arsenal’s standards as the visitors possess a poor record of 1-3-3 7/11 with their one success being their opening away win at Newcastle United but they’ve since slumped to 6 matches without a win on their travels.

Arsenal do have a glimmer of hope though in the fact that they’ll be up against a West Ham side who have lost 6 of their last 8 matches and the visitors will view this as a match they can win and perhaps turn around their season.


Key-Facts – West Ham vs Arsenal

  • West Ham have lost 6 of their last 8 matches in the Premier League
  • Arsenal are without an away win from their last 6 away matches
  • Both teams have scored in 2 of the previous 3 meetings between these two sides


Betting Tips Verdict

Both West Ham and Arsenal will fancy their chances of all three points here, and we could see an explosive start to this match with both teams hitting the back of the net at a great price.
