Arsenal and West Ham will play in the final match of Saturday’s program of the second round of the Premier League on September 19 – we assessed the opponents’ chances of success in the derby and made a forecast.
The arrival of Mikel Arteta on the Arsenal coaching bridge has begun to bear fruit. The Gunners played excellently at the end of the last championship, and also show good results at the beginning of this season. The London club have won six of their last seven official matches.
This season , “Arsenal” has started a victory in the Super Bowl of the country over the reigning champion of “Liverpool”. The main time of the match ended in a draw, and the penalty shoot-outs were more precise with the Gunners. Arteta’s team also looked confident in the Premier League opening round, beating Fulham in the away derby with a score of 3: 0. Let’s note the good game of Londoners in defense, which allowed the “summer residents” to deliver only two aimed strikes on their goal.
Arsenal have a tough calendar after the West Ham match. Over the next five rounds, the team will play against Liverpool, Leicester, both Manchester. It is these matches that will show the Gunners’ readiness to fight for high positions.
In general, Arsenal have always played successfully in their home arena. In 14 previous home games, he suffered only one defeat.
Arreta’s wards are approaching the match with West Ham with a number of personnel losses. Calum Chambers, Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari, Shkodran Mustafi, David Luis will definitely not play due to injuries. Questionable for the game Granit Jaka.
For a long time, the Hammers were among the teams fighting to preserve their registration. The appearance on the coaching bridge of David Moyes helped to solve the main problem – the “hammers” remained in the Premier League. However, as the first fights of this season showed, the Scotsman did not manage to improve the quality of the game, so it is not surprising that his bookmakers are considered the main contender for the first retirement in the Premier League.
In the opening round of the championship , West Ham hosted Newcastle at home and deservedly lost with a score of 0: 2, without showing anything intelligible in the attack. After that defeat, the League Cup victory over Charlton (3: 0) helped to improve the mood.
On the road, the Hammers, under the leadership of Moyes, were so unable to establish stability. In the last ten away matches, West Ham have won only one victory. The team plays especially weakly in defense. Only in one of these fights she did not miss.
The Hammers are approaching the upcoming fight without any personnel losses.
Arsenal have won six of their last seven Premier League games at home.
In the Premier League at home, Arsenal failed to score in only one of their last 42 matches.

Arsenal have beaten West Ham at home in eight of their last nine head-to-head matches.
In six of the previous eight face-to-face meetings between the rivals on the Arsenal field, the bet was “over 2.5”.

Arsenal also scores regularly in their home arena and will certainly be able to find their way to the hammers’ goal in this match.
