Westham vs Arsenal- preview   Leave a comment


West ham will be expected to have as many men as possible behind the ball. This method is to frustrate the gunners attacking threat. Carzola, podolski, gervinho, oxlade chamberlain, ramsey and arteta will have to be in top form to break down a defence that have only chipped in five goals this season. Giroud has been playing well, linking up with play well and his shooting has been wonderful so far. Why has it been difficult for him to score we all ask.
I guess he has been highly unlucky so far, going by the champions league match against olympiakos, his shots were always deflected away from goal. One thing i am sure of it that whenever he get it right with luck on his side goals will come.
Gervinho seems to be on fire scoring freely this season. He has scored more goals this season than he did the entire of last season when the goals scoring responsibility was borne by robbin van persie. The current state of olivier has also been maximized by the ivory coast international who is believed to replace Drogba in front of goal. His dribbling has been superb, yet his eye for goal is getting better. He has found the net in our last three consecutive games, which is a home impetus heading to the upton park.
