Arsenal vs West Ham Prediction & Betting tips
A London derby is scheduled this weekend at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal then receives a visit from West Ham United. A duel between two teams experiencing a Premier League season to forget as quickly as possible.
Mikel Arteta was presented at the end of 2019 as the new savior of Arsenal. The Spaniard has not yet managed to perform much better than his predecessor Unai Emery. Yes, Arsenal plays a lot more attractive under Arteta and the players also have more confidence in their 37-year-old trainer. However, it is not that Arsenal performs much better under Arteta, as The Gunners are still in a disappointing tenth place in the Premier League and were recently eliminated in the Europa League.
With a five-point deficit in fifth place, Arsenal may still qualify for the Europa League next season through the competition. No one will be satisfied with that: the people of North London were already active in the Europa League in recent seasons and you no longer enjoy the Arsenal supporter with that. No, the Arsenal fans crave Champions League football in the Emirates Stadium again, but that won’t happen next season either. In fact, it is not inconceivable that next season no European football will be played at the Emirates. Arsenal won 0-2 on Monday-evening in the FA Cup against League One-club Portsmouth, but saw that Lucas Torreira broke his ankle in that game and the Urguayaan is probably out.
West Ham United:
A lot more was expected of West Ham United this season. Just like his colleague Emery, Manuel Pellegrini was also fired by his employer at the end of the previous calendar year, and Pellegrini’s successor at West Ham United (David Moyes) has not yet succeeded in getting The Hammers out of the relegation zone. West Ham United is only based on the goal difference above the relegation line in the Premier League and if The Hammers were unexpectedly relegated to the Championship, that could have major consequences for the club from East London.
There are of course still the necessary games to play in the Premier League. I am still convinced that this West Ham United is too good to relegate, but then The Hammers have to show that quickly. In the previous round, West Ham United recorded an important win in the relegation battle, as Southampton was beaten 3-1 by the Moyes team last weekend at London Stadium. With Arsenal (off), Wolverhampton Wanderers (home), Totenham Hotspur (off) and Chelsea (home), there will be four tough games for West Ham United and yet The Hammers will have to take the necessary points in those games.
