Arsenal vs West Ham: Predictions

Arsenal will be looking to make it back-to-back victories to begin the Premier League campaign when they welcome West Ham United to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Arsenal vs West Ham Predictions, Betting Tips and Predicted XI
The Gunners eased to a 3-0 win over Fulham in their first top-flight fixture of the season, while West Ham was beaten 2-0 by Newcastle United in their home opener.

(African Stand) — Arsenal host West Ham United in their first home match of the season at the Emirates on Saturday.

The Gunners followed up their Community Shield success with an emphatic opening day victory over Fulham last weekend.

Confirmation of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s new deal should ensure a spring remains in their step.

Defeat at home to Newcastle United last Saturday got West Ham off to an uninspiring start but a midweek victory over Charlton in the Carabao Cup got them back to winning ways.

Date, time, and venue

Arsenal vs West Ham is scheduled for an 8 pm BST kick-off on Saturday, September 19.

This match will be played behind closed doors at Old Trafford with no fans due to being present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

Team news

David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi, and Pablo Mari remain sidelines for the Gunners with Granit Xhaka missing last weekend’s win over Fulham with a knock.

Manuel Lanzini is fit again for the Hammers with Sebastien Haller pushing for a start after two goals midweek.

Head to head (h2h) history and results

This will be the 143rd meeting between these two sides with Arsenal winning 68 of those. West Ham has 35 victories of their own – but just one in their last 10 meetings.

Prediction: Arsenal 3-0 West Ham

The Gunners showed their lethal touch from the off against Fulham and a newly-signed Aubameyang at the Emirates will certainly fancy his chances of adding to his tally.
