West Ham United have the unenviable task of heading to the Emirates Stadium on Thursday 28 December, although it’s something of a free hit for a team who recently won at Tottenham Hotspur. David Moyes continues to perform a strong job at the London Stadium although the fact that they have conceded twenty goals in nine away clashes is a concern.

After all, Arsenal have scored twenty-two times in nine home clashes this term, with the goals being shared around. Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli continue to find the net, while Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz have also been getting on the scoresheet in recent weeks. They look sure to find the net in this encounter.

The only teams who have stopped the Gunners from winning at home this term are Fulham and Tottenham who have matched fire with fire. There were 2-2 draws in both of these encounters and the scoring form of Mohammed Kudus means that there will be some encouragement, with the Ghanaian scoring four goals in the past five clashes.

Jarrod Bowen was also on the scoresheet in a recent 3-0 win over Wolves and the England man could pose a few problems for the Arsenal rearguard, with the former Hull forward into double figures for the season. However, the big issue is how to deal with Declan Rice’s command of the game and we’re likely to see home side dominate possession.
