Arsenal Vs. West Ham Match Analysis and Prediction
Saturday, 7th March 2020
Time: 3:00 PM (UK Time).
West Ham is set to meet Arsenal at Emirates where both teams will be fighting for three points.
The three points to Westham will help them get from the dangerous relegation zone as they are so near to this point based on goal difference. On the other hand, three points to Arsenal will imply that they rise on the table by two ranks.
Besides that, the three points to Arsenal will serve a great deal in its chase for a place in the Champions League, with its current standing being fourth-place after Chelsea in the Premier League table, with one game at hand.
Arsenal is now five points off for it to secure a position in the Champions League. This desired spot by the gunners is currently occupied by Manchester United, which is set to have a match with the most dreaded Manchester City on Sunday 8th March 2020.
It is also noted that Arsenal is fighting to recover from its disturbing Europa League elimination shock. A man to watch in this upcoming match will be Aubameyang. This icon has been able to bag many goals for the team and is likely to score this weekend.
Aubameyang has pocketed 8 goals for Arsenal in the past 8 leagues games with teams that currently feature in the bottom half of the table inclusive of West Ham.
Conversely, West Ham, on the other hand, managed to secure a win against Southampton in their previous match, which they found after showing signs of desperation. However, the situation could be different in this coming match as Arsenal is likely to pose a bigger threat for David Moye’s boys than their previous competitor.
The likelihood of Arsenal winning the upcoming match can be based on their previous home matches whereby they emerged victorious against Everton and Newcastle.
Despite the rewarding previous home matches that Arsenal has had, the gunners are known to be weak at the back, and this is one of the factors that may enable the hammers to score.
Besides this weakness, the hammers are also hopeful that they will win the match, with the chance to this being higher if Moyes will retain the previous team’s line up and also if it transpires that each player is free from injury.
Last but not least, the major summer acquisition by West Ham where they signed up Pablo Fonals seem to be a great determinant in its victory this coming weekend. Pablo has been able to improve the standings of the Hammers by helping it gain 3 goals out of the total five goals in the Premier League.
An overview of the last 5 meetings between Arsenal and West Ham reveals that Arsenal won 4 times, while West Ham won 1 time, with no draw.
Head to Head:
This weekend’s match between Arsenal and West Ham will be the 142nd with Arsenal enjoying an upper hand of 67 wins while West Ham 35. The remaining 40 matches ended up in draws.
