🕗 Sunday 16th April, 14:00 GMT

We have an intriguing matchup on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League. West Ham will be looking for back-to-back victories at the London Stadium. Arsenal will be looking to get another three points to push them closer to the Premier League title. Here we have a preview of the game along with all the stats that you’ll need to make up your bet builders and we’ve also included a couple of betting tips for the game for you.

Relegation battle

The Hammers are currently sitting 14th in the Premier League after getting three points against Fulham last time out. West Ham are currently three points above the relegation zone and the Hammers will need more wins to ensure they remain in the Premier League. In their upcoming games, West Ham have games against relegation rivals Bournemouth, Leeds and Leicester in the Premier League run in.

Title race

Arsenal will be looking to make it nine games unbeaten in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. The league is now in Arsenal’s hands, despite being constantly under pressure from the other title contenders, Manchester City. Arsenal are now 6 points clear of second place but have played an extra game than Manchester City. Arsenal dropped points in their previous game against Liverpool and that could prove costly at the end of the season. Many customers have backed Arsenal on footy bets this season and will have made a substantial profit after them winning a whopping twenty-three league games so far this season.

Head to head

The last three Premier League games between the two sides have ended in an Arsenal victory. Previously this season, Arsenal beat the Hammers 3-1 at the Emirates, thanks to goals from Saka, Nketiah and Martinelli, who are all exciting prospects for the future of Arsenal. 

Crucial players

Arsenal’s key man this season is undoubtedly Bukayo Saka. The youngster has positively impacted Arsenal this season and contributed massively to their drastic improvement. Saka has twenty-two goal contributions this season in the Premier League, scoring twelve and assisting ten.

West Ham’s Premier League top goal scorer this season is Danny Ings. The Hammers signed Ings from Aston Villa in the January transfer window for £15m. Danny Ings has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season, but only two goals have come since he joined the Hammers. Ings will be looking to rekindle his form going into the last nine games of the season and will be looking to go through the remainder of the season with no more injury scares.

Newcastle's form under Eddie Howe

Since Eddie Howe arrived at the club in November 2021, Premier League fans have seen a drastic change in how Newcastle play. Eddie Howe took over when Newcastle were rock bottom of the Premier League, and he guided them to safety, finishing 11th in the league, 14 points above the relegation zone. Newcastle this season have impressed many people as no one would have expected them to be sitting in third and pushing for the Champions League places. Newcastle have won their last five Premier League games.
