Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Arsenal vs West Ham


Arsenal topped the Premier League table on Christmas Day for the first time since the 2007/08 season. The team did this after a fantastic start to the season ahead of the World Cup in Qatar - over 14 rounds, the London club chalked up 12 wins and a draw, which corresponds to 37 points and a leader in the standings. It should be noted 33 goals scored, while the leader conceded less than one goal on average.

In the last two rounds, the Gunners defeated Chelsea (1:0) and Wolverhampton (2:0). However, the latest friendly results and only one clean sheet at the Emirates this season are worrying fans, as is the growing list of injuries. Tomiyasu, Smith Rowe, Nelson, Jesus and Zinchenko, who has a muscle injury, will not be able to play today.

West Ham

By the break for the World Cup in Qatar, West Ham had slipped down the standings - the team suffered three defeats in a row. However, the coach is optimistic about the future: "We will be ready and enthusiastic." Such a statement sounded frivolous, because the team has not won in this arena since January 2019.

On account of Billy McKinley 's wards after 15 rounds there are four victories and two peaceful outcomes, which corresponds to 14 points and 16th position in the standings. The attack played terribly, which differed only 12 times. Zuma, Antonio, Scamacca, Cornet and Antonio, who has a leg injury, will not be able to play today.
