The Hammers have proved prolific in front of goal at the London Stadium and so Al Hain-Cole expects plenty of action when Mikel Arteta’s men visit
West Ham will be aiming to put themselves level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea when they welcome Arsenal to the London Stadium in Sunday’s Premier League clash.
The Hammers’ Champions League dream has taken a slight knock after two defeats in their last three league games has left them three points adrift of the top four, albeit with a game in hand.
West Ham are coming off a much more disappointing performance, losing 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford. They didn’t manage a short for the entire first half, before conceding an own goal. Ultimately they couldn’t mount much of a comeback and ended the match outshot 15-7. Despite the loss, the Hammers remain within three points of fourth place with a game in hand.
Arsenal’s victory lifted them to 12-11-5 (10th place with 41 points) while West Ham United’s defeat dropped them down to 14-8-6 (fifth place with 48 points). We’ll see if Arsenal can repeat their recent success or if West Ham bounces back and reverse their fortune.
