Arsenal v West Ham Premier League Preview, 22nd April 1.30pm
The Gunners misfired last weekend throwing away a lead at Newcastle to end up suffering a defeat. That was a huge blow to their hopes of finishing in the top five this season. They get back to home soil this weekend as they face a West Ham side who narrowly avoided defeat at home on Monday night. The Hammers found themselves trailing relegation-threatened Stoke before Andy Carroll popped up with a late equaliser to save their blushes.
Arsenal v West Ham Betting Odds*
Arsenal 1/2, Draw 13/4, West Ham 24/5* (Betting Odds taken at 4:25 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)
Arsenal News and Form
The Gunners slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle last weekend after having taken the lead in the match. That snapped a three-match winning streak that they were on. But it just another part of their poor away season that they have had. They are on a three-match winning streak at home and have won five of their last six at the Emirates (L1) the loss in that sequence happening against Manchester City. Arsenal’s overall home form for the season is W13 D2 L2 and they have scored at least three goals in five of their last six on home soil. As Arsenal have been leading at half time so often at home this season then an Arsenal/Arsenal half-time/ full-time bet with Coral at 13/10 odds should appeal* (Betting Odds taken at 4:25 p.m. on April 16th, 2018). The Gunners have scored well at home this term with 45 goals in their 17 games and 76% of their home fixtures have made it above the 2.5 goal line. Each of their last eight at the Emirates have done so. They have actually collected a clean sheet in 47% of their home games as well.
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers rescued a late point at home against Stoke on Monday night thanks to Andy Carroll. That left them in a pretty good spot, seven points clear of the drop zone. They are now on a three-match unbeaten streak of form in the top flight (W1 D2), with their last two both being 1-1 draws. Their away form will be a little bit of a concern for them though as they have taken only the one point from their last four road games, but that was in a good draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in their last road game. West Ham have collected only one clean sheet in their last six games so are going to get exposed at the back and overall they have only won twice on their travels this season in a W2 D6 L9 record. Both teams to score with Coral is at 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:25 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) and the Irons have scored in each of their last nine away games, with exactly one in each of their last four. So it may be worth backing them to get on the scoresheet even if the final result doesn’t go their way. An Arsenal 2-1 correct score option at Coral is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:25 p.m. on April 16th, 2018). It’s just about grinding to the end of the season now for the Hammers to ensure they hold on to their safety.
Arsenal v West Ham Head to Head
The Gunners were held to a 0-0 draw at West Ham earlier this season in the league but they did also meet up with the Hammers in the EFL Cup in December, with Arsenal taking a 1-0 home win. The Gunners have three straight clean sheets against West Ham in all competitions now and they are unbeaten in their last five against them (W4D1). Arsenal are on a nine-match undefeated streak at home against West Ham in the league, scoring exactly three goals in each of their last four.
Who will win – Arsenal v West Ham Predictions
The Gunners have been good enough at home this season to suggest that they can win out in this London derby. They have a higher priority in winning the UEFA Europa League this season but still, they should collect three home points, but back both teams to score.
