WEST HAM UNITED VS ARSENAL: BETTING TIPS
WEST HAM UNITED
PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: L – D – L – W – L
Last time out, West Ham United lost 1-0 to Chelsea in the dying minutes of the game. The home side were forced down to 10 men after Dawson received a straight red card for bringing down Lukaku in the penalty box. This weekend, the Hammers have a similar challenge ahead. During the week, they played host to Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final. Unfortunately, it was meant to be the home side, who, after flailing behind in the early minutes, were unable to take control of the game and lost out 2-1.
The reverse fixture was won by the Arsenal, a 2-0 loss which at the time saw West Ham’s push towards the top four places dissipate. This time around, David Moyes will be pushing his side to put on a similar performance to that against Chelsea, which involved high levels of was discipline and compactness.
We are pricing a West Ham win and over 2.5 goals in the match at 6/1 (7.00)
Benhrama to score anytime during the match is priced at 38/10 (4.80).
PREVIOUS GAME LINEUP: Fabianski, Cresswell, Dawson, Johnson, Coufal, Soucek, Noble, Masuaku, Yarmolenko, Fornals and Benrahma
INJURIES OR SUSPENSIONS: Ogbonna, Diop, Zouma and Dawson (Red Card)
PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: W – W – L – L – L
The Gunners are in a good position to make their dream of Champions League football next season a reality. Having started the season with three losses in a row, Mikel Arteta has managed to galvanise his small squad and turn his side’s fortunes around.
The Spaniard has shown great flexibility lately, slotting in Tavares to replace an injured Tierney and switching to a back three when his side is on the attack. This tactical nuance has worked out brilliantly against their latest opponents, Chelsea and Manchester United – who notably found it challenging to compete whenever Arsenal pushed forward. Driving at opponents suits the Gunners, as they are known for their great interchanging passes and a great creative mind in the Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard.
As seen in previous games against Chelsea and Manchester United, Arsenal have started brilliantly, scoring in the opening minutes of the game. We are pricing Arsenal to score first this weekend at 5/9 (1.55).
Martin Odegaard to score and Arsenal to win the match is priced at 37/10 (4.70).
The Gunners are also priced at 8/1 (9.00) to win the game with a correct score of 2-0
PREVIOUS GAME LINEUP: Ramsdale, Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tavares, Elneny, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Smith-Rowe and Nketiah
INJURIES OR SUSPENSIONS: Partey and Tierney
