Prediction Arsenal vs West Ham: PL | December 15, 2021
Arsenal hosted a high-profile West Ham team at the Emirates Stadium when the two teams from London blew their whistles at 21:00 GMT, with the reward of three precious points.
West Ham are looking to maintain their place in the top four as Arsenal look to qualify for the Champions League for the first time this season.
Can Arsenal continue their good home form?
Mikel Arteta’s side have been struggling lately as they have won two and lost three in their opening five games.
After defeats against Liverpool and Manchester United in recent weeks, the Gunners needed a performance and victory to remind everyone that Arteta’s project is on track.
Having won 5 of the last 6 matches in the English Premier League, the Gunners will have confidence when welcoming David Moyes’ army to North London.
Can West Ham claim victory at the Emirates to cement their place in the Top 4?
David Moyes’ side have been in terrible form in the first half of the season as they have matched the top six teams in the league.
After beating Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in recent weeks, the Hammers will confidently visit Arsenal as they look to cement fourth place as they head into the busy festive season.
Mikel Arteta’s team’s performance stopped in the final rounds of the tournament.
Gunners collected 9 points out of 18. In this match, Arsenal won 3 and lost 3 matches.
Arteta’s army has the best home form in the league in the last 6 matches. They have picked up 16 points from their existing 18, with only a 2-2 draw with the moody Crystal Palace on an otherwise perfect home ground.
The Hammers have collected 10 points from the last six games. They won three, drew one and lost two in this match. In this match, they defeated Liverpool and Chelsea, both with a score of 3-2.
Away, West Ham won 3, drew 1 and lost 2 in the last 6 rounds in the league.
Mikel Arteta will not be able to pick Sead Kolasinac for the London derby against West Ham. The 28-year-old left-back is nursing an ankle injury he sustained on November 13order.
On the other hand, the Spanish military leader has a full squad ready to choose to enter the busy festive season.
David Moyes will have a headache due to the availability of Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma. Ogbonna has to be out of action for a long time, the 33-year-old Italian player is sidelined because of an anterior cruciate ligament rupture.
Kurt Zouma picked up a hamstring injury on December 4order, is expected to skip him until the end of December. This will be of great interest to Moyes as Zouma and Ogbonna are his first-choice centre-back pairing.
Possible starting lineup
- Ramsdale; T. Tomiyasu, B. White, Gabriel, K. Tierney; B. Saka, Thomas, G. Xhaka, G. Martinelli; M. Odegaard, A. Lacazette
- Fabianski; A. Masuaku, I. Diop, C. Dawson, V. Coufal; D. Rice, T. Soucek; S. Benrahma, M. Lanzini, J. Bowen; M. Antonio
Players to see
With Aubameyang struggling in form, Arteta needs a striker deep down and leading the front line.
Lacazette’s mettle is increasingly sublimated and becomes an influence in Arsenal’s attacking play. His linked play with Odegaard, Martinelli and Saka worked well against Southampton, as the Gunners won 3-0.
Lacazette will be the scorer for Arsenal against West Ham.
Antonio has had seven goals and five assists in 17 appearances for West Ham United this season. The Jamaican international has been an integral part of the approach David Moyes has taken this season.
West Ham have utilized his physical attributes and speed to devastating effect. He will be crucial as Moyes plots to destroy the Arsenal defence at the Emirates.
Predict the match
Expect Arsenal to play constructive play and patient passing; they will dominate the ball control before West Ham’s defence. West Ham will maintain a disciplined play and look to take advantage of their ability to hold the ball with direct attacks across wide areas.
With their discipline and attacking power, West Ham can play well against Arsenal by taking all three points from Emirates.
