West Ham United vs Arsenal Predictions

  • West Ham have scored in all their home league games this term
  • 76% of the Hammers’ home Premier League matches have seen BTTS land
  • Arsenal have scored seven goals across their last two games
  • However, the Gunners have conceded in nine of their last 11

Is Hammers’ Euro dream over?

Having fallen eight points off the top four, it seems like West Ham’s Champions League ambitions are done. Having also lost 2-1 in their Europa League semi-final clash with Eintracht Frankfurt, the Hammers are possibly about to blow their best shot at making Europe’s top competition.

David Moyes’ men have switched focus towards the Europa League and that has left them seventh in the Premier League, putting their hopes of returning to the competition at risk. They’ll want to finish the season on a high and potentially climb into the top six, but Thursday’s trip to Germany is the focus.

Arsenal on the up

While West Ham’s Champions League chances are slim, Arsenal are in the driving seat for fourth having won against Chelsea and Man United in their last two. The Gunner scored seven goals across those victories to take the advantage in the top four race.

They know they need a win at the London Stadium to keep clear of Tottenham, but the visitors need to be wary at this ground. West Ham have won all three of their home clashes with the top five, beating both Liverpool and Chelsea 3-2. The Gunners need to be aware of the threat the hosts pose.

Back attacks to come out on top

This clash looks like one for the forwards, especially given that West Ham haven’t failed to score at home in the league this season. The Hammers have seen 76% of their home games finish with both teams scoring, which should suit an Arsenal side who have clicked going forward.

The Gunners’ recent scoring run has been necessary, as they’ve gone five games without a clean sheet. The visitors have produced only two shut-outs in their last 11, conceding 25 times in 16 league trips this term.

Both sides should find the net in this one on current form, while the Hammers’ impressive record at home to top sides has to be respected. I’m backing the hosts to make it seven games unbeaten at home in the league with a 2-2 draw.

West Ham predicted lineup: Fabianski; Johnson, Zouma, Cresswell; Coufal, Soucek, Noble, Masuaku; Yarmolenko, Benrahma, Fornals

Arsenal predicted lineup: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Elneny, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Smith-Rowe; Nketiah
