Both West Ham and Arsenal up today
Be noted that the Hammers are 14th in the table but just three points clear of the drop zone
That’s in what is shaping up to be an incredibly close relegation battle
Also they face Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City
Including Manchester United in their next six league outings.
This West Ham side will be looking to take all three points today
The home side put themselves in a promising position in the Europa Conference League with a draw at Gent in midweek but their place in the Premier League looks far more perilous as they host league-leaders Arsenal on Sunday.
Arsenal look to return to winning ways
It’s the Gunners up first, and they will be hoping to bounce back after their capitulation at Anfield last weekend.
That 2-2 draw was far from a disaster, but it will be disappointing after they led by two goals and Mikel Arteta will be keen to get back on track at the London Stadium.
They are likely to do just that, too. That draw at Anfield was the first time in eight games Arsenal had dropped points and they have scored an incredible 25 goals across those eight top-flight matches.
However, defensively there have been lapses, but they are coming up against a side that average less than a goal-per-game in West Ham and six of the hosts’ last seven league losses have been by more than one clear goal, including recently 4-0 and 5-1 defeats to Brighton and Newcastle respectively.
