West Ham United Match Betting News

West Ham United managed only a 2-2 draw against struggling Crystal Palace last weekend but the Hammers were left aggrieved by a couple of questionable decisions throughout the course of the game.

The dropped points was most certainly a blow for the Hammers’ title aspirations but they remain within touching distance of fourth place in the table and manager Slaven Bilic will now want his players to get the weekend disappointment out of their systems.

Now West Ham prepare for an encounter against Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday and it goes without saying that the match will be a huge test for the Hammers. Sam Byram and James Collins are expected to miss out once again through injuries.

Arsenal Match Betting News

Arsenal kept their faint hopes of winning the Premier League title alive by claiming a convincing 4-0 victory over Watford but despite the good result, the Gunners still remain considerable points off of leaders Leicester City in the Premier League table.

Arsenal do not have destiny in their own hands and all they can do from now till the end of the season is look to win all the remaining seven matches.

Given the inconsistency Arsenal have shown this season, doing so will certainly not be easy and Arsene Wenger’s men now face a very difficult assignment when they square off against West Ham United away from home this weekend.

Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere, Mathieu Flamini and Aaron Ramsey are all injury concerns for Arsenal ahead of the clash.

West Ham United vs Arsenal Match Prediction

West Ham have already inflicted a defeat upon Arsenal this season and the Hammers look in very good shape to claim a double over the Gunners heading into the encounter on Saturday.

However, it has to be pointed out that West Ham have endured a very poor time against Arsenal prior to the victory earlier in the campaign and claiming a triumph this weekend will not be easy for Bilic’s men. The match will be a fiercely contested encounter and draw could be a likely result on the day.
