Arsenal vs West Ham United Match Preview
West Ham United will look to build on their recent success in the Premier League when they visit Arsenal in the League Cup (Carabao Cup). This Arsenal vs West Ham United League Cup fixture will be played at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday, December 19, so check our match preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
Arsenal had a little flutter in the Premier League ever since they lost 3-1 at home to Manchester United. The dull draw at West Ham was followed with a plucky 1-1 draw at Southampton, a game that the Gunners deserved to lose and were very lucky to come back with a point. However, the Gunners returned to winning ways in the weekend with a 1-0 win at home to struggling Newcastle United, thanks to a superlative goal from Mesut Ozil. Arsene Wenger would now want his side to continue their winning ways, albeit in the League Cup. With chances of silverware elsewhere looking bleak, this could be the manager’s chance of winning a title this season. However, knowing Wenger’s penchant to rotate his side heavily in the League Cup encounters, it could mean a tight Arsenal vs West Ham fixture.
West Ham have been resurgent, to say the least, under David Moyes. Never the first choice or the popular choice to take over at West Ham, the former Everton and Manchester United manager has won the fans over with some gritty displays in the Premier League. They showed a lot of pluckiness in losing 1-2 to Manchester City but the real turnaround came when they defeated Chelsea 1-0 at home. Not one to let the win go down, Moyes came back to hold Arsenal 0-0 at home in the Premier League. The Hammers then followed it up with a 3-0 win at Stoke City which means they are out of the relegation zone. The manager knows the importance of keeping the winning streak alive which means there could be a strong case for a first-choice XI from the visitors.
