Match Preview & Team News
Arsenal endured a turbulent couple of months, but there are no signs of better days in spite of the recent managerial change. The board parted ways with Unai Emery appointing the former player Freddie Ljunberg as the new manager. Nevertheless, the Swede does not seem to have the potential to lead such a big club at this stage of his managerial career.
Is there a silver lining in Arsenal’s cloud?
The latest of failures for the Gunners came on Thursday night when they lost the home fixture to the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion. Under Unai Emery, they’ve at least shown decent performances at Emirates Stadium. The team conceded at least two goals in each of the last five matches across competitions. It is a dreadful streak if we know they played the likes of Southampton, Eintracht Frankfurt, Norwich City and Brighton in the last four affairs. Arsenal dropped down to the 10th place in the Premier League standings as a consequence. Can they regain the much-needed confidence with a result in the last game of the 16th round when they take on London rivals West Ham United on Monday evening?
The Hammers have not been much better either
The hosts ended an eight-game winless thread with a shocking victory over Chelsea (0-1) last weekend at the Stamford Bridge. However, they quickly returned to the old habits falling 2-0 away at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the mid-week’s round. Manuel Pellegrini’s men thus lost four of the last five league matches and they allowed at least two goals in each of these defeats.

We don’t see the value in backing any of these two out-of-form sides. The draw seems to be the best solution and we will back it as the main pick at the 29/10 odds.
Goals Market Prediction
Both sides look incapable of keeping things tight at the back which is why the alternative pick would be Both Teams To Score at the odds of 2/5.
