West Ham United vs Arsenal:
We don’t choose to be negative about any side without good reason & as a club West Ham United deserve great respect but we are becoming extremely fearful for them & a fixture against London rivals Arsenal must be just about last on their wish list.
The facts are West Ham United are having an horrendous season with clear & obvious financial difficulties off the pitch & more importantly glaring weaknesses within the squad & form on the pitch.
West Ham United sit 2nd bottom of the Premier League with only 1 win & just 9 goals from their 8 games so far & there just seems to be a complete lack of belief, confidence & most worryingly quality within the team.
The fact West Ham United look so fragile must be a massive concern coming into this fixture against an Arsenal side who are in sensational form & scoring goals for fun.
Now West Ham United have to start getting results very quickly & particularly at home so this is a massive game for them but they will have to be at their very best to get anything against Arsenal & even then that might not be good enough.
Arsenal have had a great start to the season & they have without doubt been the most entertaining team to watch playing a brand of fluent, attacking football that I doubt can be matched at present in the game.
Arsenal have always played this positive football under Arsene Wenger but this season they also seem to have a little extra bite & belief as a team unit & they definitely have improved from last season where they did look vulnerable in games.
Arsenal still don’t look entirely solid as a defensive unit & that has given teams opportunities to score which is obviously something they will have to be careful of against West Ham.
The fact it is Arsenal coming to town means the atmosphere will be tremendous & there certainly has been quite a bit of tension between these teams in the recent past so we are expecting a competitive match but it is also likely to be open given how both teams like to play.
In our view an open game will give Arsenal a massive chance to show their attacking quality & Arsenal look a cracking bet to have too much quality for West Ham with Van Persie, Fabregas & Arshavin certain to be involved in everything again.
