West Ham vs Arsenal (By: Luke)
West Ham had a great chance to get a win at home against Brighton, but will be lucky to have pulled out a draw in a 2:2 game since they were 2:0 down till last twenty-five minutes. In the meantime, they won over Birmingham 2:0 at home securing spot in the 1/16 finals of FA Cup.
Arsenal had an easy game at home against Fulham celebrating 4:1 victory in maybe even more open game than what the final result says. It was good to see them bouncing back to positive after two poor results in Premiership, while they had an easy 3:0 win over Blackpool in FA Cup previous Saturday.
Defender Balbuena (17/1) is doubtful, same as offensive Chicharito (14/4). Injured are midfielders Wilshere (5/0), Sanchez (5/0), Fredericks (4/0) and Yarmolenko (9/2) for the hosts. The guests miss defender Holding (10/0), midfielder Mkhitaryan (14/4) and forward Welbeck (8/1). Doubtful are defenders Mustafi (18/2), Monreal (10/1), Koscielny (4/0), Bellerin (14/0) and midfielder Ozil (13/3).
West Ham will surely be looking to get back to positive ways, especially since they know that the Gunners are vulnerable at the back. The visitors will surely try to attack, knowing that that's the best defense for them. It's something that promises goals in both nets.
