From all of the Top 4 teams, Arsenal perhaps had the strongest pre-season winning all 7 of the last 7 games, recording a perfect 100% performance record. The team managed to win the Premier League Asia Trophy as well as the Emirates Cup and opened up with a victory for the Community Shield Cup against rival Chelsea with 1-0.
The new names in team this season so far are: Petr Cech from Chelsea for 14 million and Donyell Malen from Ajax for an undisclosed amount. The Gunners are really a strong host, winning 12 of the 19 matches here on Emirates Stadium last season, drawing 5 and losing just 2.
Against West Ham in this London Derby, the team has stats of W26-D7-L6, winning 5 of the last 5 games. Last non-victory result on this stadium was back in 2009, when Arsenal recorded as 0-0 against West Ham.
Favorite for this match, Arsenal is priced to win it @ 1.33 by bet365. Looking at the past 7 results between both teams, an Asian Handicap of -1.5 or even -2.5 offers you great odds for a high probability result.
West Ham has had mixed results in their pre-season matches, with overall performance record 57%, recording just 3 victories in the last 7 games. The team finished 12th last season, with 47 points, 12 above the relegation zone.
New players in the team this season are: Angelo Ogbonna from Juventus for 14 million, Pedro Obiang from Sampdoria for 6 million, Dimitri Payet from Marseille for 15 million, Carl Jenkinson from Arsenal on a loan and Manuel Lanzini from Al Jazira on a loan as well.
Last victory over the Gunners back in 2007 on Emirates Stadium with 1-0. Since then 9 losses and 2 draws, including 5 losses in the last 5 games scoring a total of 4 goals in those games and conceding 16.
While London derbies are quite unpredictable and West Ham has its chances, Arsenal’s great shape so far leads us to the conclusion that this game can go only one way.
In four of the last 5 games, Arsenal has managed to score 3 or more goals, and win with a margin with at least of 2 goals. The winning odds for this match are not high enough @ 1.33 but the Asian Handicap Arsenal -1.5 @ 1.73 seems like a perfect and logical choice.
All of the last 5 games, have seen 3 or more goals, which leads us to our second choice of bet, Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.57 with bet365.com
