West Ham v Arsenal: the tendencies.

By Bulldog Drummond

Samir Nasri is likely to appear for Wham (that is the football club not the popular singing combo) against Arsenal.  He played for West Ham in their FA Cup win against Birmingham.

And the buzz stat that is circulating is the both teams have only managed to concede zero goals in a game, there times this season.

Mr Emery made his normal polite comments saying, “I think West Ham are improving and they also have good individual players with quality, like Anderson, like Arnautovic, who are very good players.

“Usually their manager puts out very offensive teams. They usually play matches with a balance tactically but above all with technical, offensive players.”

But a key factor in this game is that West Ham don’t do very well against us.  In fact they have just won one of their last 21 Premier League matches against Arsenal.  Better we have been unbeaten in 11 away matches at West Ham at Upton Park and the hilarious “London” stadium since November 2006.

Plus we ought to remember that Mr Emery’s first victory with Arsenal was against West Ham, after the opening two defeats.  That was at the moment when all the media was rushing around trying to find the last time Arsenal lost the first three league games, and getting themselves in a dreadful muddle with all sorts of strange dates being quoted.

But against all this jollity West Ham have won five of their past eight league matches.  However they invariably concede at home (maybe its the running track) – and have conceded at least one in the last eight home games.

So we go into this without winning any of our last four away games in the League, but we have only lost one of the London derbies in the league this season.   Better Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in each of his last four Premier League London derbies, plus he has got a couple of assists.

And we have scored at least one in the last 20 PL games we have played.   Oh yes and we are still top of the second half league, having scored 32 second half goals.

Against West Ham we have won 66, lost 34 and drawn 39.  Here is a run down of results over the past eleven and a half years…
