West Ham and Arsenal will do battle in a Monday night English Premier League contest at the London Stadium. Both teams seem unable to catch a break in recent weeks and are set to cancel each other out.

West Ham Form 

West Ham failed to build on their 1-0 win against Chelsea as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at Wolves on Wednesday. They were second best throughout the contest at Molineux and could only muster three attempts on target with 0.50 expected goals. 

Pressure continues to mount on manager Manuel Pellegrini with the Hammers just two points above the relegation zone. Despite their recent results, West Ham have held their own their own against some of the big teams this season having claimed a 2-0 home victory over Manchester United before beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

West Ham News

West Ham have some good news on the injury front with Winston Reid and Jack Wilshere both available for selection having returned from lengthy injury spells. Centre back Issa Diop is also back in contention after serving the last of a two-match suspension at Wolves.

Arsenal Form

Freddie Ljunberg failed to secure a win in his first match as Arsenal manager as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Norwich. They twice came from behind with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting a brace.

The Swede faces an uphil task to turn around Arsenal's fortune as the Gunners were dealt a big blow in midweek as they went down 2-1 at home to Brighton.

The Gunners are on a seven-match winless run in the Premier League and have drawn four of the last six EPL fixtures. They seem unable to see out wins and have thrown away leads to draw against Crystal Palace, Wolves and Southampton.

Arsenal News

Centre back Rob Holding and midfielder Dani Ceballos are likely to miss Monday’s match with injury. Right back Hector Bellerin is also a major doubt having been sidelined with a hamstring problem in recent weeks.

West Ham vs Arsenal Head to Head

Arsenal have a 61-29 advantage with 34 draws from 124 previous matches against West Ham. Both teams have claimed one win each in the last two meetings with the Hammers triumphing 1-0 in the most recent fixture at the London Stadium thanks to Declan Rice’s second half goal. 

West Ham vs Arsenal Betting Odds 

West Ham’s poor form means they are outsiders at 3.60 while Arsenal are favourites at 1.90 despite not faring much better than the Hammers lately. A draw is set at odds of 4.00 and could be a popular pick among punters. 

There is value in the goals market with over 3.5 goals valued at 2.10 which has been the outcome in two of the last three meetings. BTTS is offered at a minimal 1.44 at bet365 while over 2.5 goals is also paying 1.44.

West Ham vs Arsenal Match Up 

West Ham will hope for a repeat of their performance against Chelsea where they looked organised and restricted the Blues to just a few attempts. In Andriy Yarmolenko and Robert Snodgrass, they have the quality to trouble Arsenal at the other end of the pitch. 

Arsenal’s inability to hold on to leads has been their undoing in recent weeks and they could face some problems from the West Ham forward line. The duo of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will carry the attacking threat with both men returning to goalscoring form in recent matches.
