Can West Ham Hammer the High-Flying Gunners?

Can West Ham Hammer the High-Flying Gunners?

West Ham will host their London rivals Arsenal this Sunday in a Premier League clash with contrasting narratives.

The Hammers are reeling from a six-game winless streak, while the Gunners soar high after three consecutive victories, including a resounding 3-1 win over Liverpool.

West Ham’s woes:

Winless in their last six matches across all competitions.

Leaky defense, conceding six goals in their last three outings.

Humiliating FA Cup defeat to lower-division Bristol City.

Disappointing 0-3 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Arsenal’s ascension:

Three consecutive Premier League wins, scoring ten goals in the process.
Confidence boosted by a statement victory over league leaders Liverpool.
Mikel Arteta’s attacking unit finally clicking, led by Saka, Jesus, and Odegaard.


Despite their current struggles, West Ham surprisingly boast two wins against Arsenal this season:

3-1 in the League Cup and 2-0 in the Premier League.

Arsenal are winless in their last three meetings against the Hammers.

Interestingly, four of the last five encounters witnessed over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring.


Given Arsenal’s current form and West Ham’s vulnerabilities, the Gunners are clear favorites at 1.53 odds. Their attacking prowess, evident in their recent goal glut, makes them a strong contender for victory.

However, considering the historical trend of high-scoring encounters between these sides, the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at 1.65 odds also holds promise. With both teams’ attacking potential and West Ham’s defensive frailties, a goal-fest could be on the cards.
