Arsenal occupies the 5th place of the Premier League with 33 points conquered, recording 10 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses so far.
On the 18 rounds they played, the Gunners have 31 goals scored and 20 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.8 goals per match.

On this competition, they’ve already travelled to Cheltenham to beat the local team 2-0 in the round of 64, then they hosted and beaten Bolton 3-0 and finally on the round of 16, they travelled to Wembley to beat Tottenham 2-3.
The arrival of David Moyes came at a good time, with West Ham going through their best stage of the season, by getting 7 points against Chelsea, Arsenal and Stoke.
Arsenal only conceded goals to Manchester City on their last 6 matches at the Emirates,
but Wenger should rest some players here considering the derby against Liverpool scheduled for the weekend, with only 1 points separating the two teams.
Arsenal vs West Ham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I therefore believe on the continuity of this Hammers’ good moment of form, who have arguments to make Arsenal’s life hard, scoring at least one goal, like they did against other big teams such as City, Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea.
