However, odds were similar when the Hammers hosted Chelsea on Saturday and they caused an upset there. Marko Arnautovic’s goal gave them a 1-0 win that will give them belief that they can do the same against Arsenal.
The Gunners have had an up and down season so far, and currently lie in fifth after Olivier Giroud’s 88th minute goal earned them a point at Southampton on Sunday.
Not involved in the Champions League, Arsenal have been able to keep players rested for the league and share the minutes around in various competitions as they look to make it back into the top 4.
They should be fairly fresh for this one given that only long term absentee Santi Cazorla is unavailable to Arsene Wenger. We think their attacking players will be too much for West Ham, and are backing an away win at 1.60 with bet365.
It will be a tough game in what is a London derby, but we think with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, Arsenal will have chances on the counter attack and are well equipped to take advantage.
There is some debate as to whether Lacazette or Giroud will start in attack. The latter has yet to line-up in the Premier League in a single match this season, but is banging on the door recently with some good form.
Arsenal travel to face West Ham United in the Premier League on Wednesday night. The Gunners are in fifth after salvaging a late point at Southampton on Sunday, with West Ham down in 18th despite their win over Chelsea at the weekend.
Saturday’s win over Chelsea was huge for the Hammers, who had been enjoying a terrible season and were without a win since September. The question now is whether they can build on that and start working their way up the table.
West Ham Form: WLLDLL
Olivier Giroud’s late goal salvaged a point for the Gunners at Southampton on Sunday, preventing two successive league losses after they were beaten 3-1 by Man Utd the week before. In between they did enjoy a 6-0 Europa League win over BATE.
Arsenal Form: DWLWWL
The two teams have met 135 times before, with Arsenal having won 63 times to West Ham’s 34. The Gunners have won 12 of their last 14 meetings and have not lost away to the Hammers since 2006.
Arsenal are missing only Santi Cazorla for the trip, with Arsene Wenger otherwise having a full squad to choose from. West Ham will be without defensive duo Jose Fonte and James Collins, as well as Cheikhou Kouyate.
Home win: Arsenal to win at 1.60 with bet365
Arsenal to win 2-1 at 9.00 with bet365
