West Ham v Arsenal Preview
West Ham’s Form
West Ham are an interesting side, despite their Europa Conference League success last season and them currently 7th in the league with only 1 defeat in their last 5 league games. There remains a constant pressure on Moyes to “succeed” and the broader form book doesn’t bode for good reading with The Hammers winless in 6 games in all competitions.
Last weekend their positive run of form against Man United ended with a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford. Despite the scoreline, West Ham had their moments with their Total of 22 Shots and Expected Goals of 1.40 greater than their opponent’s 12 shots and 0.75. Suggesting to me the underlying performances is still there at West Ham to cause Arsenal issues again.
Victory for The Hammers will mean they stay in 7th place at a minimum with the potential to leapfrog Man United again if other results go their way.

West Ham v Arsenal Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: West Ham 0-2 Arsenal
West Ham come into this game with it all to do, despite their positive record against Arsenal in recent games, they remain two sides on entirely different stratospheres and trajectories when it comes to aspirations this season.
Arsenal picked up a massive win against Liverpool last weekend and it has many suggesting that they could be the “real deal” now following their league collapse last season.
Arsenal come through this one comfortably, albeit the London Derby factor and West Ham being at home means I don’t think it’ll be a thrashing by any means.
Best Bet: Under 2.5 Goals and Arsenal Win 3/1
