West Ham vs Arsenal: 3 Things To Watch For
Arsenal Predicted Starters To Face West Ham
Arsenal take on West Ham as their unlikely quest to the Premier League title continues. Here are all the ways to watch the match unfold.
Arsenal again find themselves as an underdog. Which is somewhat amazing, seeing as how when this season began and given the way it has unfolded, Arsenal would have appeared to be the front runners. But they are not. Again – somehow.
Arsenal sit eleven points behind Leicester City and four behind Tottenham, albeit with a game in hand. For those of you not good at math, that means that Arsenal is going to need a monumental collapse from the Foxes in order to get back into a fighting chance of taking the trophy that seemed like it was made for them.
Somewhat on Arsenal’s side, the toughest schedule does not belong to them. West Ham provides the toughest test. The Hammers have been hammering the top of the table, and Arsenal is not an exception. Few could forget the upset that was opening day. Arsenal traveled down the road to Slaven Bilic’s place and were embarrassed 2-0.
It was the start of another season that just hasn’t gone Arsenal’s way. But putting down the Hammers at home will be another positive step. The Gunners have won consecutive clean sheets for the first time in over four months, and last time was by a combined score of 3-0. Against Everton and Watford, Arsenal grabbed six goals and looked incredibly dominant in the process.
More from Pain in the Arsenal
The injury plague is no longer a plague. Wilshere featured for the U21s last night, Ramsey is back, Cech is back – everyone except Santi Cazorla looks fit and ready for the final push of the season. Now the trick is taking care of business and hoping no one else ahead of them in the table can manage the same feat.
With this new-look attack that features supreme athleticism around Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi and Mohamed Elneny, Arsenal have plenty of room for optimism. They are scoring without Giroud and now that Alexis is back and clicking on the right side, they have another weapon that can make all the difference.
Now that the hype has been laid out, let’s get you educated on where you can watch the game and all the match facts.
