What Trueform says for Arsenal vs West Ham
Unai Emery has had a baptism of fire as Arsenal boss but looks to have a golden opportunity to secure a first Premier League success when West Ham visit Emirates Stadium.
The Hammers are also pointless after two matches under Manuel Pellegrini and have shown fewer encouraging signs in our book.
It was 4-1 to the Gunners when these teams met here in April and our first Arsenal vs West Ham prediction is for a home win and over 3.5 goals in the game again at 7/4.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal didn’t lack effort in an opening loss to Manchester City and then played some good football going forward in a 3-2 defeat at Chelsea.
After getting off to a terrible start, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi hit the target to level things up at the break and the Gunners missed several other gilt-edged chances.
Marcos Alonso’s late strike ensured the Gunners left Stamford Bridge empty handed following a more low-key second period but Emery saw enough to work on.
He said: “Our start is an issue, but we are thinking of the next match and to work on things we need to improve.
“Also, individually we can improve more things, but many things positive we are doing and we are going to keep doing that.”
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham were all over the place when thrashed 4-0 at Liverpool and may need more time to adjust to a summer shake-up judged on a subsequent 2-1 home loss to Bournemouth.
United led at half-time through Marko Arnautovic’s penalty but Callum Wilson’s solo goal and Steve Cook’s header turned things around.
Pellegrini has brought in nine new players and handed home debuts to four of them against the Cherries before summoning another three from the bench.
“We have got a lot of new players and we need to gel,” Jack Wilshere told the club website.
“At this level, in this league, people aren’t given time, so we have to do it quick and all tuck in this week.”
Wilshere will be determined to do well against his former club and the Hammers may get some joy against an Arsenal defence still coming to terms with a new system.
However, we still fancy the Gunners to prevail and 10/1 for a 3-1 scoreline completes our Arsenal vs West Ham betting tips.
