arsenal1819Monday night's English Premier League football sees West Ham host Arsenal in a London derby and both sides are finding wins hard to come by.

 

 

 

West Ham

 

West Ham have been sliding towards the relegation zone on the back of a run which has seen them win just 1 of their last 9 league outings, a surprise 1-0 victory at Chelsea 2 rounds ago. They have taken just 5 points from the last 27 available and 7 home fixtures have produced 2 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats. The most recent match at the London Stadium was also a derby and Spurs came away as winners by the odd goal in 5. Of the 7 home games backers of over 2.5 goals have collected on 4 occasions and both teams to score? (yes) has also arrived 4 times.

Sébastien Haller has scored 4 league goals for West Ham, Aaron Cresswell and Andriy Yarmolenko have scored 3.

 

 

Arsenal

 

Arsenal are also on the slide and a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton last week means they are now 7 games without a win (4 draws, 3 defeats). Their most recent road trip delivered a 2-2 draw at Norwich in Freddie Ljungberg's first game in charge and Arsenal haven't won away from home since the opening weekend when they edged out Newcastle 1-0. A tally of just 6 points from 7 away days tells its own story and the Gunners are now all of 10 points behind fourth placed Chelsea. Three of those 7 away games rewarded backers of over 2.5 goals and both teams to score? (yes).

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 10 league goals for Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette has 5.

 

The Betting

 

West Ham are trading at around 9/4, the draw is 26/10 and Arsenal are favourites at around 11/10.

Under 2.5 total match goals is priced at 33/20 whilst over 2.5 goals 4/10, the same price as both teams to score? (yes).

 

Verdict:

 

Both sides badly need a boost but I wouldn't be rushing to back either of them to win the game. For a betting interest I will go with with Alexandre Lacazette to score “anytime” given he has been finding the net since his recent return from injury

 

Bet: Anytime goalscorer Alexandre Lacazette at even money
