West Ham had a big win on the weekend as they beat Chelsea to get their season back on track. This week they will have another test as Arsenal visit in another big London derby. There is a lot of pride at stake in this game and as a result I am expecting a very passionate performance from both sets of players.
West Ham played very well against Chelsea and it was the first time since they moved to the new stadium that the fans and the players were on the same page. This is a very big club and although result don’t show it, they have a lot of history. Having said that, the Hammers are still in a relegation fight and I think they need to keep playing like the did against Chelsea if they wish to stay in the Premier League next season.
Arsenal got a point against Southampton last weekend thanks Giroud who found a way to level the scores once again. The Gunners need to win these games if they wish to remain in the top 4. This is a game which I think Wenger and his men will fancy winning since they are the better side and West Ham’s win over Chelsea would have drained the West Ham players.
With all that in mind, I am going to predict that Arsenal wins this game. We are getting a really good price on this bet and as a result I think it is the best option for us to make a wager with. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the under 2.5 goals since West Ham might park the bus.
