West Ham vs Arsenal Betting Tips – Premier League, 9th December 8.00pm

This is the worst winless run of form that Arsenal have put together since 1977. A home defeat against Brighton on Thursday moved them on to a seven-match winless run of top-flight form. They are a troubled club at the moment. Will West Ham, who have also struggled for consistency and form this season, be able to take advantage of the Gunners’ frailties?

West Ham News and Form – Can West Ham beat Arsenal in London derby?

West Ham have collected one victory in their last nine league games. That lone win was in their most recent London derby, which was away at Chelsea. The Irons have lost six of their last eight league games (W1 D1) and are not a team who are carrying any kind of form. But punters may fancy them coming up with something in this one against the beleaguered Gunners. West Ham are on a three-match losing streak at home.

They conceded at least two goals in each of those losses. The Irons have shipped at least two goals in seven of their last nine league games. So there are clear problems there with them defensively. West Ham have been losing at both half time and full time in 5 of their last 7 matches. 70% of the league goals that West Ham have produced this season has been in the second half of games. There really is no form there to speak of, but they did come up with a home win over Arsenal last season.

Arsenal News and Form – Can Arsenal beat West Ham to break the winless streak?

What can Arsenal do about this slump? No wins in seven. 10 points off a Champions League place in the league standings. Two games played since the sacking of Unai Emery and still, no progress has been by them after a draw at Norwich and then a home loss against Brighton. Arsenal have claimed only one away win this season, part of a W1 D3 L3 record on the road. They are winless in six on their travels.

Each of the three away losses have happened against teams who started the weekend in the top half of the table though. West Ham are not there. Arsenal have conceded the opening goal in each of their last four league games (D2 L2) and so they keep having to chase situations. The Gunners have failed to score in two of their last three away games, averaging just a goal per away game this season. With a defence that has conceded at least two goals in five of their last six, and with an away record that has seen them losing at half time in four of their seven played, they look on an even keel with West Ham.

West Ham vs Arsenal Predictions

West Ham to win: The defence of Arsenal has some major issues. To be fair so does West Ham’s. Neither of these sides are reliable or trustworthy enough. Arsenal arguably have the better attack, but a West Ham – Draw Double Chance still looks a tempter.
