Arsenal will welcome West Ham United at the Emirates this Saturday in a late Premier League clash. This will be the second game of the season for the two London clubs.
Arsenal vs West Ham United preview
Arsenal will be keen to pick from where they left last weekend having smashed newly-promoted side Fulham 3-0. Mikel Arteta’s men are enjoying a fine run since the return of football, and have done some good job, towards the end of last season where they beat big teams including the defending champions Liverpool twice. Meanwhile, West Ham escaped relegation and will be keen not to continue dropping points that could count come next year.
- West Ham have lost 10 of their last away matches to Arsenal in all competitions.
- West Ham have failed to win 9 of their last 10 away Premier League matches.
- Arsenal have been drawing at half time and winning at full time in their last 3 home matches against West Ham in all competitions.
- Arsenal have won 6 of their last 7 home Premier League matches.
Head to head
In their last six encounters, the Hammers have managed to beat Arsenal once, following a 1-0 victory in 2019. Last season Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1 in the first leg that was followed by a 1-0 win in the return leg.
Following their impressive performance in the league opener against Fulham, the Gunners will be on the run to secure another 3 points this Saturday. West Ham on the other hand began the season on a low note, losing to Newcastle United by a 2-0 scoreline.
Mikel Arteta’s men will come out with guns blazing at the Emirates and our pundits think it will be an easy win for the home team. Bet on the hosts to secure a victory at odds of 1.55 with betway while 22bet has 1.51 for the same outcome.
Anytime goalscorer – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a good start to the 2020/21 season against Fulham as he netted a beauty from Willian’s pass to hand Arsenal all the three points. As we had predicted last time.
With the Gunners captain having signed a contract extension, it is expected that he will continue with his fine form against the Hammers.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has been given out an odd of 1.57 by 22bet to score anytime while the betway has 1.64 for the same outcome.
