Westham vs Arsenal *preview* london derby   1 comment


The Irons have
only won one out of their last five
Premier League games and have
struggled to score goals.
The Hammers were expected to claim
a victory against bottom of the table
Sunderland in their last Premier
League outing, but could only manage
a goalless draw against their fellow
strugglers.
The Gunners also drew their last
outing 0-0 with Chelsea at the
Emirates Stadium on Monday night.
The result took Arsenal to second in
the Premier League, behind league
leaders only on goal difference.
The draw made it four games without a
win for the Gunners in all
competitions, the side from north
London drawing two and losing one of
the top-flight games and losing at
Napoli in the Champions League.
However, with leaders Liverpool
facing a tough trip to Manchester City
in the late kick-off, the Gunners could
regain top spot with a victory against
the Hammers.
Arsene Wenger’s men will also be
encouraged by their record against
the Hammers at Boleyn Ground in
recent years, the Gunners having won
on five of their last six visits to the
East End. Arsenal have also won the
last five games against the Hammers
in all competitions.
West Ham have lost eight and won
none of their last 10 Premier
League games against Arsenal.
Theo Walcott has scored in his last
three Barclays Premier League
appearances against West Ham.
This is Arsenal’s 100th London
derby away from home in the
Premier League and the Gunners
have won 44 out of 99; more
victories on the road than any other
team in capital clashes.
