West Ham shocked the reigning champions Chelsea 1-0 at London Stadium on Saturday.

The win over the Premier League heavyweights will clearly instill some confidence into their players who are to play another London rivals on Wednesday when they host Arsenal.

West Ham United

The mentioned win over Chelsea was actually the first one for David Moyes ever since he took charge of the Hammers in recent weeks.

The hosts are still in the danger zone after a horrendous kick off to the season under Slaven Bilic.

Their main issues were connected with their defensive displays, but the Hammers shockingly managed to keep their net untouched against Morata, Hazard & company at the weekend.

Arsenal

The Gunners ended their three.win streak in the Premier League last weekend when they fell 1-3 at home to Manchester United.

They were expected to return to the winning ways this Sunday when they played Southampton, but Arsene Wenger’s men only managed a hardly-fought draw at the end.

It was the substitute Olivier Giroud who cancelled Charlie Austin’s early goal for the Saints, as the French forward came out with the header in the dying minutes of the game to keep the Gunners a single point above their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur in sixth.

West Ham United vs Arsenal: Head to head

Arsenal have obviously dominated this match-up over the course of history, winning 587 and losing only 28 of 119 previous meetings with London rivals.

The Gunners have been pretty inspired in most recent matches with West Ham netting at least three goals in each of last three meetings with the Hammers.

West Ham United vs Arsenal: Prediction

We’d normally see Arsenal as massive favourites for clinching the spoils here, but the hosts will be extra motivated after a tremendous defensive display against the reigning champions at the weekend.

Instead, we’ll try and back the hosts to make another upset at the sky-high 5.50 odds as the main betting option.
