West Ham vs Arsenal in the Premier League on May 1.2022 Odds & Prediction

West Ham vs Arsenal in the Premier League on May 1.2022 Odds & Prediction

After failing to win any of their last three Premier League outings, it is fair to say that West Ham have waved the top-four white flag and with the Europa League still a going concern, it makes perfect sense as to why.

While such a submission will be music to the ears of Arsenal who visit on Sunday and with the Gunners recording two hugely important wins in the past week, they have leapfrogged Tottenham in the race for 4th place.

Arsenal and Both Teams To Score

With West Ham having to deal with midweek European exploits, it is Arsenal who will be the fresher of the two sides on Sunday and this is something that I have considered when looking at the latest betting odds.

Not to mention, that the Hammers are severely depleted at the back this weekend and with the Gunners already favourites to earn maximum points, I am now going to add a bit more meat to the bones.

West Ham Form, squad news, opinion

After getting the better of Lyon in the last eight of this season’s Europa League, it is fair to say that there has been something of a hangover for West Ham since and with them now eight points behind Arsenal in 7th, they are going to have to find a different way to reach the Champions League.

Thankfully, their continued pursuit of the Europa League trophy. is also one that will offer a backdoor entry to UEFA’s main club competition and if David Moyes’ men win in Seville next May, their league placing will be largely irrelevant.

Then again, there is an element of win or bust to this strategy and if West Ham take their foot off the accelerator pedal too much, it may then see Wolves pip them to a 7th place finish on the final day.

Therefore, the Hammers need to find something in the way of balance and if they were to miss out on Europa League success and drop down to 8th in the table, it would be a rather disappointing end to the campaign.

While with European exploits taking place this Thursday, one wonders if they will once again have a hangover by the time the weekend comes about and if that is the case, Arsenal will be ready to take full advantage.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Arsenal, it is a defensive nightmare for manager David Moyes and with injuries to Kurt Zouma, Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna already ruling them out, the suspension of Craig Dawson means that West Ham have no fit or available centre backs this weekend.

Arsenal Form, squad news, opinion

After three successive Premier League defeats, many pundits and punters had begun to write off Arsenal’s hopes of earning a return to the Champions League at the end of the season.

However, the Premier League can be a very strange beast at times and with nobody giving Arsenal much of a chance against either Chelsea or Manchester United, Mikel Arteta’s men then delivered a maximum points haul.

One that has turned the race for 4th place completely on its head and with the Gunners now finding their groove once more, they will look to continue their momentum this coming Sunday afternoon.

Especially as West Ham have all manner of issues when it comes to the selection of defensive personnel and although Arsenal have been known to be shy in front of goal in recent weeks, such issues have now seemingly been eradicated.

While because of this, Arsenal will now look to make good use of West Ham’s own issues and if that proves to be the case, it will be North London who rules supreme in this capital city clash.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to West Ham, manager Mikel Arteta must deal with the absence of Kieran Tierney until the start of next season and the same doubts are once again attached to midfielder Thomas Partey.

History

When it comes to the history of West Ham and Arsenal, it is the Gunners who have come out on top more often than not. Not only that, but the North London outfit have won double the amount of their East London rivals.

pointer right
In terms of their overall head-to-head record, West Ham have won on 35 occasions, Arsenal 70 and there have been 40 draws.

About the Venue

The London Stadium opened in 2011 and holds up to 60,000 supporters

However, it was not football that was the first port of call at this venue and with it being previously called the Olympic Stadium, it was the likes of Mo Farah and Usain Bolt who were getting cheered to victory first.

With that said, West Ham have long since had the keys to the ground and although there were teething problems during the first couple of seasons, it is seemingly much more of a fortress for the Hammers these days.

Conclusion

When looking at the Premier League outright odds for a top-four finish, West Ham’s have lengthened in the past couple of weeks and if you want to back the Hammers, it may make sense to follow them in Europe instead.

quotes
While when looking at the odds from an Arsenal perspective, theirs have shortened considerably in the past week and suddenly the Champions League pendulum has swung back in their favour.
