Why Arsenal will beat West Ham

Ahead of the tie, a number of statistics have emerged that show why Arsenal are clear favourites for the game:

  • Arsenal have won 12 of their past 13 Premier League home games against West Ham, with the exception being a 2-0 loss on the opening weekend of the 2015-16 campaign.
  • After winning three consecutive league games against Arsenal between February 2006 and April 2007, West Ham have won now just two of their past 30 against the Gunners.
  • Against no side have West Ham lost more Premier League games than they have against Arsenal (35, same as against Liverpool), while Arsenal only have more wins in the competition against Everton (37).
  • Arsenal are unbeaten in their past 13 home games in all competitions (W11 D2) since a 3-0 loss to Brighton in May. The Gunners have won their past seven at the Emirates Stadium by an aggregate score of 21-2.
  • West Ham manager David Moyes has never won in 22 attempts away against Arsenal in all competitions. He’s only faced Chelsea on the road more without ever winning in his managerial career (23).
