Arsenal VS West Ham United live preview Premier League

West Ham
Match Stats


Due to Aston Villa's inability to extend their remarkable Premier League home winning streak against Sheffield United on Friday night, Arsenal and Liverpool entered the Anfield arena aware that the victor would secure the title of 'winter champions' on Christmas morning.Mikel Arteta's team seemed poised to break their 11-year drought without a top-flight victory at Liverpool's home ground with a fourth-minute header from Gabriel Magalhaes, marking their quickest-ever goal at Anfield in the Premier League. However, a powerful finish from Mohamed Salah leveled the score for Jurgen Klopp's side just 25 minutes later.Despite surviving a controversial decision involving a Martin Odegaard handball and a five-on-one counter-attack, Arsenal left North London with a point that kept them ahead of Liverpool in first place. However, Arsenal fans might want to temper their Christmas celebrations, as the team has yet to win the league in a season where they sat at the top on December 25.Moreover, Arteta's team risks slipping to the third position if Liverpool and Villa both win on Boxing Day. At first glance, a streak of just one win in their last four outings in all competitions may seem underwhelming, but Arsenal's strength remains evident at home.A 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion earlier this month marked Arsenal's fifth consecutive Premier League win at the Emirates Stadium. Additionally, it has been over two years since Arsenal last lost a home Premier League match against another London club, with eight wins and four draws in such matches since Chelsea's two-goal victory in August 2021.

West Ham United:

Concerning West Ham, the team still grappled with the unwelcome presence of winter illnesses prior to their victory over Manchester United, with Nayef Aguerd and Maxwel Cornet both unfit to participate in that match. However, Aguerd was on the road to recovery last week.Although Cornet might not be a strong contender for a spot in the starting lineup, Aguerd is expected to be fit enough to replace former Arsenal defender Dinos Mavropanos, who is likely to find a spot on the bench alongside another former Gunner, Lukasz Fabianski.The only injury concern for West Ham is Michail Antonio, who continues to deal with a persistent knee issue. While he has resumed running outdoors, he is not anticipated to be considered for first-team selection for another couple of weeks.


Arsenal left the EFL Cup battle against West Ham empty-handed, not deserving any better based on their performance. However, when it comes to Premier League points at the Emirates Stadium, Mikel Arteta's team presents a different challenge altogether.While West Ham remains a resilient and challenging opponent, their struggle to keep a clean sheet in top-flight away matches since April may prove to be a significant vulnerability. Such shortcomings are likely to have consequences in North London.

Arsenal possible starting lineup:

Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Jorginho, Rice; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.

West Ham United possible starting lineup:

Areola; Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson; Soucek, Alvarez; Kudus, Ward-Prowse, Paqueta; Bowen.
