West Ham United welcomes Arsenal
West Ham United welcomes Arsenal at the London Stadium in a last game from the 16th round of the Premier League. In few minutes we are going to present you our English Premier League predictions for this fixture in the capital.
West Ham United are in crisis right now and it’s pretty obvious. The Hammers are 16th in the standings with 16 points, losing four of their last five matches. At this moment Manuel Pellegrini’s team is just one point above the 18th Southampton and the relegation zone.
During the week West Ham had the tought taks to face Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux and it didn’t end too well. Wolves dominated and secured an easy 2-0 win. Leander Dendoncker opened for Nuno Santo’s team before the halftime break, while Patrick Cutrone decided everything with a second goal.
Manuel Pellegrini is a high class manager, but if he doesn’t find a way to stabilize his team’s performance then he could get the sack really soon. West Ham are not performing in the way the board and the fans expect from them.
Arsenal are also not living their best days at the moment. The Gunners are 10th in the league standings with 19 points, already on 10 points behind the Top 4. That’s far from acceptable.
Since the club decided to sack Unai Emery, things are not going much better for Arsenal. During the week the caretaker Freddie Ljungberg suffered his first defeat with the team. The Londoners hosted Brighton & Hove Albion at the Emirates, but lost the game with 1-2. Alexandre Lacazette scored Arsenal’s only goal in the game, but it was not enough.
Now it’s up to Fredrik Ljungberg to find some solution before the next game. The Swede is just a caretaker, but every point is going to be important for Arsenal. Maybe next week they will have a new permanent manager already.
In our English Premier League predictions we think that both West Ham and Arsenal are teams in crisis at the moment, which is the reason why this match is totally unpredictable. Be careful if you decide to bet on it.
