PREDICTION West Ham United vs Arsenal

In the 16th week, West Ham United just celebrated their first win since late October. Now they immediately got another tough test, which host Arsenal at London Stadium on Thursday (14/12/2017) early morning hrs.

West Ham managed to stop their bad barrage, unmitigated this momentum they woke up by beating Chelsea 1-0. This is David Moyes’ first victory after being appointed as a substitute for Slaven Bilic. Moyes clearly hope victory cons Chelsea to start for the Hammers to get out of the relegation zone.

Meanwhile Arsenal’s performance is still up and down. After losing 1-3 from Manchester United they won 6-0 against BATE in the Europa League and then last a 1-1 draw against Southampton in the Premier League. A draw against Soton makes the Gunners failed to overtake the four positions that occupied Liverpool. The consistency of Arsene Wenger’s troops still needs to be sharpened.

Prediction West Ham United vs Arsenal: Marco Arnautovic
Arnautovic became West Ham’s hero when he beat Chelsea. He scored the only goal of the game and gave an important victory to the Hammers. This is the first goal of an Austrian striker for The Hammers and it seems his confidence will increase after this because while with Stoke last season he performed quite well.

Olivier Giroud

Prediction West Ham United vs Arsenal: Olivier Giroud
Almost the same as Arnautovic, Giroud became Arsenal’s savior against Southampton. Signing in as a substitute on 72 minutes, Giroud scored a counterweight which drove Arsenal out of shame to lose to the mid-table team. This is Giroud’s fourth goal of the season although he has never been a starter in the Premier League.

Prediction of the arrangement of players West Ham United vs Arsenal

West Ham will not have Jose Fonte, James Collins and Cheikhou Kouyete up for this match, but Michail Antonio seems to be getting better and ready to play for this match. While Arsenal must play without Aaron Ramsey who injured a hamstring against Southampton.

West Ham will likely play with three more defenders against Arsenal considering this formation makes their defense neat against Chelsea. Arsenal are often switching from four to three defenders when the game is likely to return with three defenders this time.

West Ham United (3-4-2-1): Adrian; Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Obiang, Noble, Zabaleta, Masuaku; Lanzini, Arnautovic; Antonio

Arsenal (3-4-2-1): Cech; Monreal, Mustafi, Koscielny; Kolasinac, Xhaka, Ramsey, Bellerin; Sanchez, Ozil; Giroud

Prediction scores West Ham United vs Arsenal

One of the factors driving West Ham’s victory against Chelsea is that they play at home, but the laudable is also their defense. This time they will play in London stadium again.

Arsenal are still not consistent so far despite their wins against Burnley, Huddersfield and BATE. A 1-1 draw against Southampton showed they were still less ready to play two games in a week. They are also not very good in away games from the last five games, losing to City, Koln and draw against Saint. This time the predicted match will be won West Ham with the score 1-0, what about your prediction?
