Arsenal vs West Ham

The London derby is upon us with Arsenal looking to win their fifth game in six when West Ham arrive at the Emirates this Saturday.

Things have been looking up for Arsenal since the arrival of Mikel Arteta. The new boss seems to have rekindled hopes of a place in the Champions League next season thanks to a run which leaves his side eight points off the top four.

Despite their elimination from the Europa League and a goalless draw with Burnley, the Gunners have won five from their last seven games.

West Ham have endured a tough few months however, things are also beginning to look up for David Moyes and his side.

Many expected Liverpool to walk right through the Hammers yet the London outfit led for large parts of that game and ultimately lost 3-2 due to a couple of goalkeeping howlers from Lukasz Fabianski.

A few days later, West Ham won their first league game since New Years’ Day when they convincingly beat Southampton 3-1. This victory has given the club fresh hope of survival however, that could very much change depending on this weekend’s result.

Looking at the betting, most bookmakers are heavily siding with the Gunners. That comes as no surprise when you take everything into account, including West Ham’s woeful record at the Emirates.

The Hammers have won just one of their last 12 visits to the ground and what’s more, they lost ten of those games. As well as points, West Ham also struggle to get any points when they play at the home of their neighbours.

Bearing all this in mind, the recommendation in this game is to go with a 2-1 victory for the Gunners. West Ham are battling for their lives and seem to have found their scoring boots of late.

Nevertheless, we expect Arsenal to turn it on in this derby and keep all three points in their side of the capital.

Recommendation

 

Crystal Palace vs Watford

Crystal Palace vs Watford

Following on from their heroics over Liverpool, Watford will be looking to use that momentum as their battle for safety continues this weekend against Crystal Palace.

Arsenal against West Ham isn’t the only derby taking place in London this weekend. Speaking of derbies, Palace will be hoping to make it two form two following on from their 1-0 win over Brighton in the A23 derby.

In fact, Palace seem to have rediscovered some form after winning consecutive Premier League games for the first time since early December.

Watford, on the other hand, come into this game after putting an end to Liverpool’s incredible unbeaten run. However, with the exception of that win, the Hornets have been in pretty woeful form losing four of their five earlier games.

All this aside, Palace versus Watford is a fixture that tends to produce tight encounters – ones that are generally decided by a margin of one goal.

With that in mind, our recommendation is to back a 2-1 win for the giant slayers Watford. The Hornets have won three of their four head to head games with Palace by that scoreline and the 10/1 price tag certainly adds value.

 Arsenal v West Ham Team News

Arsenal will be without midfielder Lucas Torreira for Saturday’s clash with West Ham as Mikel Arteta’s side look to move towards the top four.

Champions League qualification is the number one priority despite setting up an FA Cup quarter-final clash with Sheffield United by beating Portsmouth on Monday.

That victory came at a cost as 24-year-old Uruguay international schemer Torreira fractured his ankle and is unlikely to be seen again this season.

Dani Ceballos should retain his midfield role alongside Granit Xhaka, with the duo establishing a good partnership in recent weeks.

Eddie Nketiah and Reiss Nelson both looked good in attack against Pompey and may well keep their places, while Kieran Tierney is back in full training but not yet match fit, with Bukayo Saka expected to start at left-back.

West Ham chief David Moyes has no new injuries to deal as Andriy Yarmolenko pushes for a return after a thigh injury.

Midfielder Tomas Soucek is unavailable due to a hip injury and Ryan Fredericks is sidelined following shoulder surgery.

Arteta has already spoken about the importance of this London derby in relation to a possible top-four finish and there is no question it is now or never for the north Londoners.

Sat in 10th spot in the standings, they have a number of in-form teams to pass in order to qualify for nest season’s elite club competition and it looks a tough ask, with a trip to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City next on the agenda.

Games with Wolves, Leicester City and Tottenham in April will decide their fate as will the form of striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon hitman’s future has come under scrutiny in recent weeks although Arteta wants him to stay at the Emirates, with the African’s quest for the Golden Boot continuing when the Hammers come calling.

    Arsenal 1-0 West Ham United - Match Highlights

    Date published: 3/7/2020 7:57:32 PM

    Alexandre Lacazette settled a lacklustre derby as Arsenal extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to eight games with a 1-0 win against West Ham.

    The Hammers were a little unfortunate not to take anything from the match as they produced another good performance on the back of last Saturday’s victory against Southampton.

    West Ham started very brightly and went close to scoring after only two minutes when Jarrod Bowen smashed a shot against the post.

    When the Gunners responded Mesut Ozil’s shot was blocked by Aaron Cresswell but it was David Moyes’ side that enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges and Bernd Leno had to push Sebastien Haller’s shot away for a corner.

    Arsenal went extremely close to breaking the deadlock midway through the first period only for Sokratis to head Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cross against the bar.

    West Ham continued to press and Leno had to keep out Pablo Fornals’ right-footed effort as Arsenal, who failed to have a shot on target in the first period, reached half time fortunate to still be level.

    The Gunners were better at the start of the second period and Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski did well to parry Eddie Nketiah’s left-footed shot. However, the visitors continued to create the better opportunities and Leno had to make a brilliant save to keep Michail Antonio’s header out.

    Former Hull City striker Bowen forced Leno to make another stop while VAR ruled that Arsenal should not be handed a penalty when Lacazette went to ground under Angelo Ogbonna’s challenge.

    With just 12 minutes remaining Arsenal grabbed the winner though when Lacazette lashed the ball home after Ozil had headed the ball to the Frenchman.

    Haller went close to grabbing a late equaliser for the Hammers, who remain in grave danger of being relegated to the Championship after this defeat.
