Arsenal vs West Ham United Preview

Arsenal vs West Ham United

Competition – English Carabao Cup – Fifth Round

Stadium – Emirates Stadium

Date: 19th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Arsenal returned winning ways last weekend when Mesut Ozil helped them record a 1-0 win over Newcastle.

The Gunners will be confident ahead of this game even though they were held to a goalless draw by this same team just two weeks ago.

The Gunners have a stunning home record this season, winning 11 and losing just one of their 14 matches in all competitions – that loss coming in the form of a 1-3 win for Manchester United earlier this month.

In the last round, they fielded a strong attacking line up led by Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott but their defence was a makeshift one with Mohammed Elneny paired with Rob Holding and Mathieu Debuchy.

They cannot afford to field such an inexperienced back three in this game or else they risk going out with ease as West Ham have been on the up rise since the appointment of David Moyes.

West Ham will expectedly field their best side in this game as they continue their resurgence under David Moyes.

The Scot will know that a loss could heavily impact his players’ confidence and even stop their momentum.

The Hammers have had to play top opponents in their last four games including Chelsea and Arsenal and they have managed to get four points from the London duo.

They come into this game off the back of a 4-0 away win over Stoke City which means they have scored in three of their last four games.

The Hammers have won only one of their last six meetings against Arsenal, losing three of those.
