West Ham vs Arsenal: Predicted Score, Preferred Team & Match Preview
Woeful Arsenal travel to South-east London to take on relegation battlers West Ham United tonight. Last season’s corresponding fixture saw the gunners drop 2 points although they had cruised to a 2-0 lead at half time. ‘Arsenal are in sublime form’, after getting humiliated by Championship sides Ipswich Town and Leeds, and anything less than 3 points for the gunners will seriously dent their title chances.
Bacary Sagna is suspended whereas Squillaci, Tommy-V and Abou Diaby are still out. Also, Denilson should recover for West Ham although the brazilian did pick up a thigh problem against Ipswich. Luke has been ruled out so Szcesney starts in goal. The boss said:
we have uncertainty about Denilson too. He has a little thigh problem but we are still optimistic that he will be available.
“Apart from that we have no one coming back. Sagna is suspended while Diaby, Squillaci and Vermaelen are out.
“With Thomas, the news is quite good. He has no long-term problem but we still need to be patient in the next weeks.”
Subs: Luke, Gibbs, TR7, Ramsey, Arshavin, Nikko, Chamakh
A strong team is required at Upton park, and I for one would not be taking any risks. Nasri, Theo, Cesc and RVP should all start with AA23 and Nikko sitting out. Incase required we can bring in AA23 and Chamakh, you know if nothing is going right for us. The defense shall comprise of Eboue as RB and the rest of them the same.
