A big London Premier League derby to look forward to this Sunday as Arsenal, who are challenging for a top four finish, travel across town to take on West Ham.

Arsenal start this round of games on 60 points and in fourth so are in pole position to bag one of the lucrative ‘top four’ places, while having threatened a few months ago to also challenge for a Champions League slot – West Ham now look booked for a top 8 finish at best.

The match betting sees Arsenal at 1.75, despite being the away side, with the draw 3.60 and West Ham at 4.75.

The Gunners have won 6 of their last 8 games against West Ham too and lost only 1 of their last 13 away league clashes over the Hammers.

It’s generally a game that produces goals too – we’ve seen OVER 2.5 GOALS in 10 of the last 12 games between these sides in this repeat fixture and in 9 of the last 14 overall. 3+ goals can be backed at 1.80.

Both teams have also netted in 11 of the last 17 meetings, so this could be another option in the goals market at 1.75.

The ‘goals in this clash’ is also backed up with Arsenal having scored at least 2 goals in 9 of their last 12 vs West Ham. You can back Arsenal to score 2+ goals at 1.80.

Other factors to note heading into the game is that this season’s clash saw a RED CARD (West Ham) so there might be some boil over here – you can back a red card to be shown in the game at 5.50.

Finally, looking at the scorers’ markets – Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette likes to score in this fixture – he’s scored in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads. You can back the Frenchman to score at 5.50 (1st) or 2.37 (anytime).

Overall, we think it’s a game that will produce goals again, so the 1.80 on OVER 2.5 GOALS in the game is how we are going to play this one.
