Arsenal will enter the clash with David Moyes’ side after an impressive 3-0 win over Southampton. The Gunners have won 3 and lost 3 of the last 6 matches in the Premier League.
On the other hand, West Ham were held to a 0-0 draw by Burnley on Sunday. The Hammers have been in impressive form this season, picking up shock wins over Liverpool and Chelsea.
Michael Owen has predicted Wednesday’s clash between Arsenal and West Ham United will be a close one. I said BetVictor:
‘This must be a good game. I never knew what to expect at Arsenal. They played poorly to Goodison last Monday and then went on to win against Southampton. This is a great opportunity for them, although a win here would see them rise above The Hammers. “
“Away trips against Burnley are never easy, but David Moyes will still be disappointed to leave with only one point. West Ham are still in fourth place, but their pursuit package is close. West Ham will be great. Hope not to lose this game and will try to keep things tight. I can see them let Arsenal down and get a point here.”
West Ham United is currently ranked 4th in the Premier League table, just 1 point ahead of Manchester United. Meanwhile, Arsenal occupy 6th place in the table, 2 points behind The Hammers.
Arsenal need to start winning against top quality opponents
Despite signs of significant improvement under Mikel Arteta’s management this season, Arsenal have struggled in games against top-quality opponents.
The Gunners have suffered heavy defeats at the hands of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea. They also suffered a 3-2 defeat to a high-performance team, Manchester United two weeks ago.
Arsenal spent more than £120m on new signings over the summer. The Gunners are in transition under Mikel Arteta and are looking to support him financially.
