Arsenal vs West Ham Prediction & Betting tips
For Arsenal there is another London derby on the program this weekend. After the defeat of last week against Chelsea, Arsenal has to win this weekend from fellow townsman West Ham United.
Unai Emery is under pressure at Arsenal. Pressure that his predecessor Arsène Wenger also suffered last year. With Emery, Arsenal hopes that the club can participate again in the championship. The first two games have in any case shown that Arsenal is not a champion. At Arsenal they will be happy if they can qualify for the Champions League, because Arsenal has not really improved this summer. Especially the defense remains a problem for The Gunners and that became really clear when the transfer market was already closed. Until the winter break Emery will have to do with this rearguard and then it will be a difficult story to compete with teams like Manchester United and Manchester City.
Arsenal has played this season against Manchester City. The Gunners opened the season against The Citizens and hopelessly went 0-2. The score did not do justice to the proportions on the field; Arsenal really did not like it and was lucky that it only lost two goals. Last week, Arsenal of fellow townsman Chelsea lost: 3-2. Again it turned out that The Gunners in the back really lack to participate in the Premier League. On Saturday afternoon, West Ham United has to be won anyway, because otherwise the Arsenal fans will go back to the Wenger era.
West Ham United:
Like Arsenal, West Ham United is also scoreless after two games. With Liverpool and AFC Bournemouth, West Ham United has had two opponents of which it can lose. So there is no man overboard yet. With Manuel Pellegrini, West Ham United also has a trainer who knows how to hit the whip, so in London Stadium you do not have to panic yet. Besides Manuel Pellegrini, a lot of West Ham United players have enough experience in the Premier League and this West Ham United can still be the surprise of this season.
West Ham United went 4-0 in the opening weekend against Liverpool and last weekend Bournemouth was too strong for The Hammers: 2-1. Marko Arnautović shot West Ham United ahead in the first half and West Ham United managed to hold onto the lead up to the sixtieth minute. Subsequently, Pellegrini saw that his goalkeeper Łukasz Fabiański had to fish twice and with that, West Ham United suffered the second loss of this season. The Hammers are now nineteenth in the Premier League, but of course this does not mean anything. There are still 36 games to play and this West Ham United has the material to finish in the left row. For midfielder Jack Wilshere the encounter with Arsenal is special, because he played more than one hundred games for Arsenal.
