West Ham United vs ArsenalEnglish Premier League, KO: 14:00 Feb 11, 2024, London Stadium
ARSENAL will be bidding to make it four Premier League wins on the bounce when they square off with West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday.
After stumbling into 2024 off the back of two successive defeats, Mikel Arteta’s men have well and truly forced their way back into the title race.
Last time out, the Gunners registered a statement 3-1 victory at home to Liverpool, on an afternoon where my player-based double landed in North London.
That triumph means Arsenal are now just two points off the top of the table and they will be aiming to continue that momentum when they head across the capital this weekend.
However, David Moyes’ side have already defeated Arsenal twice this season so they certainly won’t be fazed by the task in hand on Sunday.
West Ham are as big as 5/1 on Bet 365 to earn what would be their third win of the season against Arsenal.
Arsenal are far too skinny for my liking here so I’ll head to the Bet Builder and bundle up Arsenal to Score, Over 2 Arsenal Corners and Declan Rice Over 1.5 tackles at 5/6 (Bet 365).
Mikel Arteta’s men rarely draw a blank in the Premier League, having netted in 20 of their 23 outings this season so far, and that trend should continue against a West Ham side who are not exactly renowned for being watertight.
David Moyes’ defence has failed to silence their opponents in 18 of their 23 top-flight assignments this term, not to mention they are without a clean sheet in their last five matches across all competitions.
As such, I’m more than happy back in-form Arsenal to strike at the London Stadium, but I’ll also take the visitors to earn a minimum of three corners.
The Gunners are averaging a league-high 7.65 flag kicks per 90 this season, covering the 3+ line in each of their 11 top-flight roads trips this term to date.
To round off the 5/6 (Bet 365) Bet Builder, I’ll also go with former West Ham favourite Declan Rice to make a minimum of two tackles during this all-London affair.
The all-action Arsenal midfielder averages 2.2 tackles per-game in the Premier League this season, delivering 2+ in eight of his last 10 league appearances for the Gunners.
Elsewhere, I’ll also back Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka in the To Score or Assist at an eye-catching even-money on PaddyPower.
The Arsenal talisman has racked up 16 goal involvements across his 22 Premier League appearances this season so Saka definitely represents a spot of value at evens (PaddyPower) to add to that tally on Sunday.
