Arsenal are looking to keep pace with Leicester at the top of the table by winning a tough away game at West Ham. Will they come away with all three points?
After a Champions League-less midweek, the Arsenal team should be well rested for their massive clash at West Ham on Saturday. The North Londoners are coming off a much needed win against Watford last week, which saw them pull within four points of second-place Tottenham, with a game in hand.
At this point in the season, Arsenal will make it their mission to win all their remaining games, as they try to maintain any hope of winning the Premier League, even if it is Leicester City’s to lose. A win on Saturday is certainly needed, but will be easier said than done. West Ham are a much improved side under Slaven Bilic, and will be tough take three points off.
Dimitri Payet has been a revelation this season, and Arsenal’s defence will be hard pressed to keep him off the scoresheet. Still, even with all of the Hammers’ improvements, Arsenal are more than capable of getting the win here. They mustn’t be complacent, as West Ham will be keen to take every opportunity to do the double over their London rivals.
Here is how Arsenal could line up at Upton Park on Saturday.
