There should be football fans who do not know much about historical figures. However, there are statistics as vast as a tsunami wave. Such evidence shows just how deep one of England’s biggest football clubs has fallen.
West Ham vs Arsenal Betting Predictions and Odds
The Arsenal Football Club (10th, 19 points) has not won since nine competitive matches. When was this the case for the last time? March 1977 is the answer. Such a negative run would have been unthinkable a few years ago.
The Gunners are currently a joke. The squad is just not good enough and has been put together completely inadequate. This team already has the second coach after Arsene Wenger with Unai Emery on the conscience.
It seems the club hierarchy lack of football expertise. Otherwise, it is unclear how helpless the association responded to the sporting crisis and the dismissal of Emery.
Arsenal had no plan B, no solution, who should follow Emery when he is released. The Spaniard had to go legitimately nevertheless. However, there seems to be a list of succession candidates only among journalists and fans.
If it should prove true that interim coach Freddy Ljungberg retains the coaching job until the summer, the doomsday calls for the relegation battle might actually prove true. Apart from the legendary status, the Swedes do not really seem to qualify to continue this job.
The recent two appearances under his direction were almost more frightening than the performances previously under Emery. Opponent West Ham United (15th, 16 points) is also in crisis for weeks. Nevertheless, the Hammers were last with a win at Chelsea sit up.
It was not more than the famous whistling in the woods. The extremely insecure Gunners could still prove to be a perfect build opponent. After all, the bookmakers still see the North Londoners in this derby as favorites. This shows the odds between West Ham and Arsenal.
The Gunners have won 39 Premier League games on a Monday. Only Manchester United will win more (43). The Pellegrini troupe in turn has the most Monday defeats (29). Two statistics, which may actually be treated somewhat negligently at the end of the 16th matchday.
West Ham – Statistics & Current Form
There have already been five sackings in this Premier League season. In the entire past season, there were a total of six leave of absence.
In the east of London, another coaching chair is currently shaky. West Ham scored only one victory in the recent nine Premier League matches (1-2-6) and conceded 18 goals in that period.
This success celebrated the Hammers a week ago in London and thus possibly rescues coach Manuel Pellegrini the job. The Chilean, who once won the championship with Manchester City, is calm in the discussions: “In a defeat you are the idiot, in a victory a hero.”
During the week, the Hammers missed after the derby victory at Stamford Bridge, winning for the first time since the end of August again two games in a row. At the beginning of the season there were still six unbeaten games (3-3-0). West Ham was weak in Wolverhampton.
Former Bundesliga player Sebastien Haller, for whom West Ham transferred 45 million pounds to Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer, remained pale once again. Mikhail Antonio is expected to replace the Frenchman on Monday if he gets fit in time.
In the table, the Hammers fell from fifth place (7th game) now in 15th place. The lead on a relegation place is only two points. On a very unlucky match day on Saturday and Sunday (victories for Southampton and Everton, a draw for Aston Villa), East Londoners could fall under the ominous line.
The last two league home games were lost. Three bankruptcies in series in front of the home fans were the last time between May and August 2015. Looking all over the league at the last eight Premier League matches, no other team collected fewer counters than the Hammers (4 points – 1-1-6).
The crisis of West Ham is closely related to the depth of form of Felipe Anderson. The Brazilian failed to score in both his recent eight league games (553 minutes on the pitch) – his longest losing streak in the Irons’ jersey. The numbers of the Hammers read terribly.
Nevertheless, the possibility of a victory on Monday evening seems to be given. Therefore, at West Ham against Arsenal advises our prediction for tip “home win”. Main goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and playmaker Manuel Lanzini are still missing injured. Robert Snodgrass and Mikhail Antonio are ailing questionable. Jack Wilshere is back in training, hoping for a comeback against the former club.

Arsenal – Statistics & Current Form
The worst competitive game for over 42 years beats everyone in red and white on the mind. The fans are frustrated, the players unsettled and interim coach Ljungberg already baffled after two games.
Under the 1: 2 defeat suffered by Brighton during the week against Brighton, including the interim solutions, only Pat Rice won his first home game of the last five Arsenal coaches in September 1996. With all the Gunner’s deficiencies, defensive vulnerability scares the most.
The North Londoners conceded the first goal in nine Premier League games this season. Only the table penultimate Norwich is even worse in this category. In home games Arsenal already had 52 shots on his own case this season. For comparison: In the complete “Invincibles season” 2003/04, there were only 48 enemy shots.
However, if all defensive hopes rest on players like David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi or Sokratis Papastathopoulos, only one thing is as sure as the Amen in the Church: a zero-match game with this team is as rare as finding a Blue Mauritius. Arsenal has not won a Premier League game for two months.
The next games also raise the question of where the Gunners should land a victory. Interestingly, West Ham against Arsenal, according to odds of bookmakers, nevertheless, only outsiders to three points. The December balance sheet of the Ljungberg-Elf is also no hope.
Only one of the last eleven Premier League away games in December was won (1-6-4). In 2017 there was a victory at Crystal Palace. Since then, Arsenal has played six matches without three (0-4-2). Of the last 12 Premier League London derbies abroad, the 13-time champion only scored two wins (2-4-6).
In addition to the 3: 2 at Crystal Palace in December 2017 was won in October 2018 5-1 in Fulham. The hopes in away games and London derbies rest equally on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabonese scored 86 percent of the away goals this season (six of seven).
Lucas Torreira scored the other goal. Since his league debut for Arsenal in February 2018, Aubameyang scored 18 of the 43 Arsenal away goals (42 percent). No other Gunner struck more frequently in the stranger during this period than five times. In his latest ten capital derbies, the ex-Dortmunder was directly involved in ten goals (eight goals, two assists).
However, Aubameyang is still without success in three attempts against West Ham. Dani Ceballos still fails.
Best goalscorers in the Premier League:
🏆 10 goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
🏆 5 goals: Alexandre Lacazett
🏆 2 goals: David Luiz
