West Ham vs Arsenal
Arsenal travel to the Olympic Stadium tonight to take on a re-vitalised West Ham side.
The Hammers are currently 19th in the table after winning just three matches all season.
The most recent of those wins, however, was against last season’s Champions, Chelsea, on Saturday at the Olympic Stadium.
Arsenal ran riot at West Ham last season, winning 5-1 with Alexis Sanchez scoring an exquisite hat-trick.
The Gunners lost their unbeaten home record just over a week ago against Manchester United and have been very poor away from home.
Arsenal’s woeful away record
This season, Arsenal have played 8 matches away from home in the Premier League, winning just two of them.
Arsenal have scored just nine goals away from the Emirates, with five of those goals coming in one match (at Everton).
Time for Super Jack?
Arsenal fans have been begging for Jack Wilshere to start in the Premier League all season and they may just get their wish tonight.
Aaron Ramsey sustained a hamstring injury on Sunday, away at Southampton and is ruled out of the clash against West Ham.
When speaking to Wilshere at the Premiere of the film “89”, the Arsenal midfielder explained:
“It’s down to the manager (when I should start), it’s a good team with world-class players”
“I feel good now, I feel ready to play in the Premier League and if and when the Boss selects me, I’ll be ready”

West Ham vs Arsenal prediction
Arsenal seriously need three points if they want to have any chance of finishing in the Top 4 this season and usually, West Ham would be the perfect place to play in this situation.
However, given Arsenal’s poor away form and David Moyes’ revitalised side, tonight’s fixture will surely prove very tough for Arsene Wenger’s team.
Arsenal definitely have enough quality in their team to win the match but as often seen with Arsenal, quality makes no difference.
