What Trueform says for Arsenal vs West Ham
All eyes will be on how Arsenal react to the news that Arsene Wenger will leave at the end of the season when they entertain West Ham.
The hosts’ Trueform chart is slightly superior to West Ham’s but the gap is far tighter than their respective odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash.
With the Hammers scrapping for every point to edge further away from relegation trouble and the Gunners also distracted by next week’s Europa League action, United are tipped to be competitive.
Punters can get 3/2 for the visitors to avoid defeat and that is good enough to feature in our Arsenal vs West Ham betting predictions.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal have had more highs than lows of late, but they again looked fragile in a battle when beaten 2-1 at Newcastle.
Alexandre Lacazette put the Gunners ahead at St James’ Park but the Magpies rallied to hand Arsene Wenger’s side a fifth straight away defeat in this competition.
We were on the ball with a trio of winning selections in our preview of that match, including a 10/1 correct score pay-out.
Wenger commented: “In the second half, I feel that some players paid a little bit physically for having played the game on Thursday night in Moscow.”
That quotes suggests the Frenchman will be wary of putting too much strain on some key figures ahead of entertaining Atletico Madrid.
Arsenal again have doubts over Jack Wilshere due to an ankle injury, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan (knee) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) remain out.
Aaron Ramsey is available after suffering a deep gash to his calf against CSKA Moscow on April 12.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham will have wanted more than a 1-1 stalemate from Monday night’s home clash with Stoke but Andy Carroll’s last-gasp leveller did at least edge them closer to safety.
Fit-again Carroll climbed off the bench to volley in an equaliser on his first appearance since the turn of the year, nudging the Hammers seven points clear of the drop zone.
“I thought we played well throughout,” said the striker. “We took points off them, and it’s a point for us, so it was a good result in the end.
“We’ve still got five games left and we’ve got to win them, as no-one is safe. It’s tough at the minute and we’ve just got to keep working.”
The Hammers had previously beaten Southampton 3-0 and secured a share of the spoils at Chelsea, so David Moyes will be pleased with the spirit shown of late.
We’re finishing off our Arsenal vs West Ham betting tips by taking 8/1 for United to play out a third straight 1-1 draw.
Joe Hart could pay for his blunder against Stoke and Moyes admits he has a decision to make, with Adrian waiting in the wings.
James Collins is not ready to return from his hamstring injury, while Winston Reid, Michail Antonio, Sam Byram and Pedro Obiang are long-term absentees.
