After a bitterly disappointing result for Arsenal last week in the Europa League against Olympiacos, they got back to winning ways on Monday night in their FA Cup victory over League One outfit Portsmouth.
Meanwhile, West Ham, got their first victory in nine since beating Gillingham at the start of January over an out-of-form Southampton side.
The Hammers have seen an upturn in performances as although that Saints outfit had lost three of their previous four matches heading into that fixture, David Moyes’ men dispatched them with relative ease 3-1.
Prior to that fixture they were very nearly the team to end Liverpool’s unbeaten run, as they remained 2-1 up until Lukasz Fabianski’s howler in the 68th minute.
There’s a little more confidence now, and what will be especially promising for the manager is the likes of Sebastien Haller and new signing Jarrod Bowen getting onto the scoreboard in what looks a solid attacking threat.
Arsenal To Beat West Ham 3-1
Mikel Arteta knows a thing or two about how to get the better of this West Ham side as when assistant to Pep Guardiola at the start of the 2016/17 season, Man City won all eight encounters across all competitions by an aggregate scoreline of 28-3.
Of course, the Gunners aren’t quite at the level of that Citizens outfit, but they still have an impressive record against their visitors for this weekend.
They’re W6-D1-L1 in that same time period across all tournaments, with five of those victories coming by two clear strikes and as many seeing more than two strikes in the game.
In fact, Arsenal have won six of their seven league matches with West Ham at their home stadium since the 2012/13 season, netting more than twice in all six victories and exactly three times in four of the most recent five.
Arsenal To Beat West Ham And Over 2.5 Goals
For all their troubles this season, Arsenal have won four of their last five outings, including impressive high scoring victories over Newcastle and an in-form Everton side at the Emirates.
Their last three outings here have seen a minimum of three strikes when including extra time in that Olympiacos defeat, whilst even excluding the Greek side’s winner, over 2.5 goals has landed in 14 of their 20 games here this season.
That includes seven of eight against teams lower than eighth in the league alone, as five of those saw at least four goals.
Although the Hammers have produced some better performances in recent weeks, they’ve still lost eight of their last 10 games on the road.
Only once did they net more than a single strike, but they have scored in five of their past eight trips now.
However, five straight defeats can’t be ignored and we’ll also have a go at the correct score in this fixture last season as well.
