In the English Premier League, West Ham United are set to host Arsenal at London Stadium.
Things are looking very poor for Arsenal with the team losing its previous match at home to Brighton. It was a disgraceful performance by the Gunners as they only managed to maintain 49% of the ball at home. Arsenal have failed to win their previous 9 matches and the team looks extremely low on confidence. As it currently stands, the Gunners have 19 points from their 15 games it looks like they will slip into the bottom half of the ladder. Big changes are required at Arsenal and it is hard to see the team turning things around for this match.
Things have not been ideal for West Ham with the team losing 2-0 away from home at Wolves. It was an expected result but West Ham United showed desire as they maintained 51% of the possession. West Ham have had an inconsistent weekend but the team recently defeated Chelsea so they will have some confidence as they enter this match. At home, West Ham United will be optimistic that they can get 3 points from Arsenal.
Arsenal and West Ham United last played each other in January. The match was played at London Stadium with the Hammers winning 1-0. Declan Rice was the star performer for West Ham United as the English midfielder scored the winning goal in the 48th minute. It was a closely contested match with both Arsenal and West Ham sharing the possession.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick West Ham United to win this match. West Ham United are playing at home and they will have some confidence having recently defeated Chelsea. Arsenal are looking extremely poor and I don’t see the Gunners having enough structure to get a result from this fixture.
