West Ham United v Arsenal: Tense tussle at London Stadium as Moyes continues to revitalise Hammers

Looking far more secure at the back in their last couple of games, Al Hain-Cole expects the hosts to make life difficult for the Gunners

After their shock 1-0 victory over Chelsea, West Ham United will be hoping to upset the odds once again when Arsenal visit the London Stadium for Wednesday’s Premier League clash.

That win was a first in five matches for David Moyes, who is available at 9/2 (5.50) with Betfair Sportsbook to ingratiate himself even further with the home fans by overseeing another eye-catching win here.

However, no team has won more away matches against this opposition than the Gunners, who are 13/20 (1.65) favourites to secure a 13th victory on the road in this fixture.

The guests were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw away at Southampton at the weekend, and you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on them being forced to settle for a stalemate yet again in this one.

Although his appointment was hardly met with universal approval, Moyes has undoubtedly set about on improving a defence that had conceded more than any other team at the time of his arrival.

After some early setbacks, the former Sunderland boss will be extremely satisfied to see his side earn a clean sheet against the champions a week after restricting free-scoring Manchester City to just two goals.

Those results will certainly give the Hammers hope of frustrating Arsene Wenger’s men, who have found cutting edge more difficult to come bay on their travels this campaign.

Five of the visitors’ nine league away goals so far arrived in a single match against an Everton team in poor form under the doomed Ronald Koeman, while they have failed to strike more than once in any of their other seven games on the road.

In fact, Arsenal have scored more than once in only two of their 11 away matches in all competitions this campaign, making odds of 5/4 (2.25) look like solid value on West Ham ensuring under 2.5 goals for their third home game in a row under Moyes.
