Arsenal are top of the Premier League after game week one of the 2020/21 season and Saturday’s (September 19) match against West Ham at the Emirates Stadium look a great opportunity for them to stay there.
Arsenal look to have taken another step forward under Mikel Arteta in the short break between seasons, with his new signings seemingly fitting in straight away. That’s why an Arsenal win is our Arsenal vs West Ham tip.
It’s possible to get carried away by Arsenal’s easy 3-0 away from home on the opening day of the season, and plenty of the big teams will also surely leave Craven Cottage with three points. But this is an Arsenal side that suddenly seems to have gelled together under Arteta, with wins in the FA Cup and Community Shield giving the players a thirst for more success.
West Ham may take some confidence from this week’s 3-0 EFL Cup win over Charlton, but there’s no escaping that their opening 0-2 home defeat to Newcastle was a nightmare start to the new Premier League season for under-fire manager David Moyes.
If recent head-to-heads are anything to go by, life isn’t about to get any easier for Moyes. Arsenal have won their last five matches against West Ham in all competitions, while they also won at the London Stadium last season. Arsenal have stepped it up a gear since then, while West Ham could find themselves in the relegation dogfight once more this season, after finishing just five points above the drop zone at the end of July.
If you disagree, you can have 5/1 (6.00) about a West Ham win, while the draw is around 7/2 (4.50). But anything above 1/2 (1.50 looks a decent price for an Arsenal win and they may just go off a good bit shorter. There’s certainly a good chance they’ll be well-backed, as they also look to be an ideal addition for any football accas this weekend.
