Another London Derby over the festive period for West Ham United as they play host to Arsenal at Upton Park , two days after being beaten by Chelsea. West Ham boss Sam Allardyce appreciated how good Chelsea were on boxing day, one of the best performances of the year for th eBlues but they still only came away with a 2-0 win. This West Ham team are resiliant and hard working and they create chances. Andy Carroll started up top alongside Valencia against Arsenal and one could argue that Allardyce rested his key players in Sakho and Song possibly looking at this home game against Arsenal as a better chance to pick up three points.
Arsenal will be without Olivier Giroud for the rest of the festive period after the French striker saw red against QPR for a blatant headbutt. Danny Wellbeck and Alexis Sanchez will lead the line for the gunners in the frenchmans absence. Sanchez has been ridiculously good this season and sits on ten league goals after just seventeen games. Overall Arsenal need a win here and have won four of their last five in all competitions.
With both teams looking defensively frail at times I think both teams to score is a decent value play here. I will have a pick on the sides in the Premium area for tomorrow and available for purchase on the app as I like this one a whole lot.
