Arsenal’s Crucial Clash with West Ham Amid Tight Title Race

Key Stats
– Arsenal boasts an impressive away record this season with 11 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses in their 15 away matches.
– West Ham’s defense has struggled, allowing opponents to score in 22 of their 29 league games.
– Arsenal have won 7 of their last 8 Premier League games, averaging 3.12 goals per game.

As Arsenal are preparing to face West Ham in the afternoon on Sunday, Manchester City could have already closed the gap at the top of the Premier League table to only three points. Pressure is up, and the Gunners cannot afford any missteps in their London battle, so we expect a convincing performance from Arteta’s men.

Arsenal will be keen to bounce back after they were held to a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday. That result, coupled with Manchester City’s win away at Southampton, meant that the gap has now been reduced to six points, and potentially only three if Man City win on Saturday evening.

At the London Stadium, they will find a West Ham side that has recently eased their relegation concerns with a crucial 1-0 win over Fulham, but David Moyes will surely know that they cannot afford complacency as they are still in the dogfight. In midweek, West Ham drew 1-1 away at Gent in their Conference League quarterfinal first leg.

Not surprisingly, the Gunners are the strong favourites to head back to North London with the three points, and it is difficult to see an upset happening with the Hammers, who will be tired from midweek duties and also have looked too fragile at the back to sustain the pressure from league leaders.

West Ham United vs Arsenal Main Betting Tip: Arsenal (-1) To Win

Arsenal know well that any slip-ups between now and the end of the season could cost them the title. Man City are in an extraordinary moment of form, winning domestically and in Europe consistently and scoring plenty of goals, so they cannot rely on potential Guardiola mistakes. Although they couldn’t win at Anfield, prior to that draw, they secured seven consecutive top-flight victories, and I believe they will prove too strong for a West Ham side that has been a disappointment this season.

Especially at the back, the Hammers look very vulnerable, having failed to keep clean sheets in 22 of their 29 league games. We expect Arsenal to dominate possession and get a comfortable win to send a message back to the Etihad that they are still solidly in control of the first position.

West Ham United vs Arsenal Value Bet: Bukayo Saka To Have Over 1 Shot On Target

For our value bet, we are backing Bukayo Saka to have over 1 shot on target. While looking for the best price for this option, we have found that, at the moment of writing, William Hill has boosted this price from 29/10 to 7/2, which represents great value in my opinion. The England international has been a talisman for Arsenal this season, having been involved in 22 goals in 30 top-flight appearances this term.

Considering how vulnerable West Ham’s defence is, I believe that he will be able to cause them lots of problems, and have at least two shots on target during the game. Saka is currently averaging 0.8 shots on target per game in the Premier League, but we have seen his total shots on target numbers increase significantly in matches, like this one, when Arsenal are likely to dominate possession. 

West Ham United vs Arsenal Correct Score Prediction: Arsenal 2-0

Mikel Arteta is expecting his men to go out there and make amends for their recent draw with Liverpool. A win against West Ham is crucial to keep their title hopes alive, and it is difficult to expect anything else as the Gunners have been impressive on the road this season, with 11 wins, two draws, and just two defeats in their 15 away games.

Arsenal’s potent attack, led by the likes of Bukayo Saka and Gabrial Martinelli, should prove too much for the struggling Hammers, and we are backing a 2-0 win for Arsenal in the correct score market.
