Arsenal and Westham United find themselves pitted in a momentum game this Saturday, as both teams seek a key victory that would put their campaign back on track. The Hammers play host to the Gunners this weekend at the Olympic Stadium.
Preview - Current Form / Head-to-Head:
Arsenal has been out of synch the last five matches, as they salvaged just one victory throughout that stretch. Wednesday's 0-2 loss to Southampton is the latest proof on how poor the Gunners have been playing as of late.
Arsenal have recorded 28 goals in 13 league plays, and conceded 13 goals - including 7 over the last five games. Thanks to their strong performance early on, the Gunners are just three points behind pace-setter Chelsea in the English Premier League standings with a 8-4-1 (28 points) slate.
West Ham United are also dealing with a ton of problems on the pitch as well. The Hammers haven't tasted a victory since their 2-1 stunner against Chelsea last October 27. The drought has now reached five games after Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Manchester United. They are fighting to stay above relegation zone with 12 points (3-3-7) over 13 matches.
Arsenal won three of their last five head-to-head matchups with West Ham United. However, they dropped 0-2 game to the Hammers last year and played to a 3-3 draw just this April.
Players on Spotlight:
Arsenal: Alexis Sanchez has been the main gunner for Arsenal with 8 goals in 13 matches. Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil have been playing poorly as of late, but they are nevertheless expected to come out firing against a shaky West Ham defense.
West Ham: The Hammers' only chance of winning this chance is another scoring explosion from talisman Michail Antonio, who already scored 6 goals in 13 league plays.
