West Ham can overcome Arsenal again

Arsenal have lost just once to West Ham in their last 21 meetings in all competitions (W16, D4) however, West Ham’s last two league wins over Arsenal have both come away from home: 2-0 in 2015 and 1-0 in 2007.

The 2015 game under Slaven Bilic with goals from Kouyate and Zarate was memorable because of the then 16-year-old Reece Oxford who kept Ozil in his pocket for the whole game.  The 2007 game with a single goal from Bobby Zamora went down in history as the first time Arsenal by beaten at the Emirates stadium. As the famous song goes West Ham were also the last team to beat Arsenal at Highbury when goals from Reo-Coker, Zamora and Etherington overcame the Gunners 3-2 in 2006.

West Ham’s tally of five Premier League victories at Arsenal is bettered only by Manchester United, with eight, and Liverpool, with seven.

West Ham have drawn all three of their away London derbies in the league this season. The last time they avoided defeat in all of their top-flight away derby games was in 1983-84.

  1. Hopefully we can surprise them again , Sean . The effect Wengers retirement news will have on the Gunners is as yet an unknown quantity . But if we play as we know we can play then a surprise could very well be on the cards . No real point in stating the obvious , so I’ll avoid it .

  2. As Kevin said who knows what effect Wenger’s retirement will have on the team but I think if we stop them scoring in the first half and are hard to break down or even better get on the front foot and dive into a few tackles, a few of them won’t want to risk their European dreams so hopefully we will go out their ultra aggressive, get in their faces and come away with the win or draw at worst COYI !!!
