Arsenal vs. West Ham Preview, Prediction and Line up

Arsenal vs West Ham preview, predicted line up and score line prediction by Kj

This has become a must win game for the Gunners. It’s been a terrible January in the Premier league with Arsenal already losing 2 games and drawing with relegation strugglers Southampton. Tottenham are now 7 points ahead of us. We must win this game against the Hammers to turn the tables around as our next league game is hardly easy (an inform Liverpool).

This game is going to be a lot more difficult than it should’ve been thanks to the injuries of Diaby, Coquelin and Arteta. Wenger neglected buying a defensive midfielder even though we’ve been calling for one for years now… It may have finally caught up with him. It would be extremely ironic if it was Diame of all people who’d inspire West Ham to a win today.

Line up:
Szczesny
Jenkinson – Mertesacker – Vermaelen – Gibbs
Ramsey – Wilshere
Walcott – Cazorla – Podolski
Giroud

This is a very risky line up for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, Jenkinson will play his first Premier league game since Swansea at the Emirates at the beginning of December. No doubt he’ll be rusty but Wenger must be ballsy and use the Englishman in place of Sagna who’s been in dreadful form.

This is the very risky part. We could be stuck with Ramsey and Wilshere as our central midfield. I love both of them and they are brilliant players in their own rights but they simply aren’t cut out for being defensive midfielders. They are far too attacking and don’t really have the upper body strength or the positioning to play a deep role as well as say Arteta or Diaby. There has been suggestions of playing Frimpong but in my opinion, he is far off from being good enough for us and he’ll be more of a hindrance on the pitch rather than a help.

This is going to be a very difficult match considering how bare our central midfield is at the moment. However, I feel the boys will step up knowing how important a win would be. Arsenal to win 3-1.

    Why not play Mertesacker- Koscielny in the defence and Verminator as as def. midfield

    I believe Marco Reus has a buy out clause in his contract when he signed for B.Dortmand and Arsenal are looking to activate it if they cannot wrap up David Villa. Wenger is a big admirer of the skillful German. Plus it will all depend of whether Marco Reus would accept to come to us.

    After recent performances why is giroud in the side. Podolski should be up front with Walcott and carzorla on the wings. Carzorla has been performing better there and play jack as the number 10. I would give Ramsey or eisfeld one of the other spots in the middle alongside frimpong who will give us the defensive steel we will be missing

    I prefer Frimpong over Ramsey for that DM role especially since West Ham players are quite strong and their tactics are also like that,we need somebody who can impose himself in the match.I think it would be hit or miss with Ramsey.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Vermaelen taking the job at CDM. He will probably do quite well there. in some respects he is like David Luiz only a better defender, and Luiz has shown for Chelsea that he suits that role quite well. Vermaelen is a powerful runner and not shy in getting forward. therefore i would quite like to see:-

    Shez
    Sagna/Jenk Merts Koscielny Gibbs
    Verm
    Jack santi

    Theo Giroud Podolski

    Maybe podolski can drop back into LM to play 4-1-3-2 as he often covers for Gibbs’ defensive lapses and positional problems (although gibbs is very good going forward for us).

    i do however hope that wenger realises the situation AFC are in, every year we are falling further and further behind. the capture of a few players is absoloutly essential if we are to contend for that 4th spot.

    Diame, Villa, Hummels would be a great window for us in my opinion.

    COME ON BOYS!!!! LETS START A GOOD RUN OF GAMES!!!

    Why not try Vremealen as a DM? I know this is probably a big risk but in my eyes he has all the atributes to be successfull in the position!

    I like Ramsey and I think in the last 2 he has really steped up when coming off the bench but neither he or Wilshere are defensive minded players!

    Vermaelen as a DM could be a great move, in my eyes its certainly less of a risk than playing Ramsey and Wilshere there!

    @hugh (very reliable internal German source); but nothing has been put on the table as of yet as they are waiting to see if Barca will budge on selling David Villa. Villa does want to leave to get more playing time and experience a different league and for a team that have similar playing styles.

    This is slightly off topic and I might get a lot of stick from some fans, but I kinda sometimes feel that just getting a defensive dm in our team won’t solve much of our problems when not even the rest of the other players(besides the cb’s) either close down and apply pressure on the opponent.

    Last season we did have a dm in Song(fine he did push up a lot but the way we play the mid n strikers need to work together to get goals) and he did close down players at times even though he wud be caught out of position. My point is he’s couldn’t close down players alone while Theo, Rosicky etc just stood there or made half hearted attempts to close down players.

    This season arteta, coquilen, n wilshere are the only 1s that have been doing any real closing down in the mid, you look at Swansea and you see that they mid isn’t better than ours but they play better football n have been troubling big teams coz they work together n close down players.

    What we need to do is YES get a DM but the rest of the team must also close down players, I HATE it when I see Theo strolling just waiting for a through pass or long ball to come to him all game long!

    I hope we win, but it would be somewhat poetic if Diame runs the midfield and scores two in a 2-0 win.

    Even if we signed him after that it would be another 3 points lost due to waiting.

    Still…hope we win.

    A dm is needed to shield the deffence as oftenly oppesite players charge into our deffence with speed and strenght….and players as Arteta,Ramsey are not strong enough to stop them….most of our players are small built and weak….we need steel and hard tackling players to stop the counter attacks and the endless crosses who usualy end up with goals…..that for i preffer the dench infront of Ramsey as West ham do have tall strong middlefield players who can cause us a lot of trouble…..

    @Pat Rice…I have to agree with you. There is no point one or two of our players pressing if nobody else is. On Sun our forwards were pressing but because the midfield werent it meant that there were big gaps between MF and Attack. We have to work as a team and if one link is missing then it will heavily affect our performance. I also have to agree about Walcott, he is quite lazy at times and can remind me of a schoolboy footballer…will sprint and work his arse off when we are attacking but when it comes to defending he will casual walk around watching the oppo pass the ball around us.

    @Henry. I agree with you about Theo. I’m pleased he signed but he isn’t working enough to get the ball back. I think he is modelling his game after Henry and VanPersie but needs to remember that those two (a) earned that right and (b) RVP was one of the hardest workers during his time at Arsenal. It is only this year that he has been able to melt away for most of the game and then score fantastic game winning goals (pause to wipe away tears). It’s not just Theo but with his time at the club, his new contract and position, he has to literally and figuratively lead from the front.

    All i keep hearing about is Diame, if hes as good as everyone says then how can Arsenal win? :). I think it will be another battle as we all know Sam seems to get the better of Arsene and smothers his style of play. Close game, lots of nail bitting but we should just scrape through maybe 2-1 Walcott, Wilshire and Gibbs being the difference.

    @pat rice very good points but 1 player on the team must stay on the shoulder of the last defender all game. That should be Theo and then Giroud should shade to the right for cover. 1 quick loss of possession by the other team and we need Theo for a quick counter. In order to play like that we must boss the rest of the pitch. Good call!

    The game will be difficult but losing will actually hit Arsene hard to appreciate the true situation on ground.The defensive M F position has been the major problem in the team but Wenger keep hanging on Diaby whose injury has been a major setback to the team this season.Ramsy is never reliable but we have no other option than to do with him.The game will be decisive because the gap bw us and Spur must be reduced.

    Some of you would like Vermalaen to play DM. This is risky, simply because we cannot afford for any of our CB’s to get injured as we have no suitable backup if they do. It is wise to keep rotating either Vermalaen or Kossie, as Mert’s is the completely different to both. Rather give the play time to Coquelin??

    As for Ramsey in midfield, please spare me. He is another prospect that will never come to the party. A good pass here and there isn’t good enough. We need another Wilshere in the midfield, someone who can tackle like a beast and put his hard work to good use.

    I would play.

    The biggest problem with us not closing the opposition enough is that we give them time to make perfect passes n for their other players to get into position properly.

    I saw that a lot with the chelsea game first half, and you can’t afford to do that with chelsea when they have the likes of Mata, hazard n oscar who are great technical players.

    In the second half as soon as we started closing down a lot, their mid n game plan wasn’t effective and we managed to score, but then later on slowed down the closing down

    Frimpong should come on if we are winning but i say put vermaelen in dm it will work, he can just roam at the back and push up as far as the edge of the back leaving kos and mert for cover if he doesnt get back. Frim can come on second half if we are 2-0 up, I believe we need to secure this one.

    Ramsey never slide tackles.. but then again neither does Diaby. I too would play Verm in the holding role.. i think Verm or Kos could play that role equally well except id say that going forward Verm can have a bit of a Vieira about him, a lokomotive monster.

    If we do go with Ramsey i wouldnt be as worried as some may feel, one thing with Ramsey is that he is very good at getting in peoples faces and has great stanima/engine, always shows allot of will

    Frimpong myself am not too keen on, i couldnt even say if i think hes promising. He always looks close to gaining a red card and with him seeing now as a perfect opertunity in gaining first team consideration, i believe he may be a little too eager

    Wonder if Jenk ever played in that pos before moving to the Arsenal, he would be very disciplined and would surely give our defenders the extra cover they need, he would also be very adept at doubling up out wide which fullbacks need a holding player capable of… hmm

    A different note… i think the Arsenal could be as they say missing a trick, manus players are over in Dubai recharging there batteries, and when you see that manu seem to have a knack to beating teams at the final hurdle, maybe some sun could do similar for our lot

    No,the reason Ramsey has been playing poor isn’t because he’s played out of position,its because he’s mediocre and it doesn’t matter what position he plays he’ll be hit an miss.

    Tell me this what type of midfielder is Rambo?he’s definitely not a DM,he’s not really mobile enough to be a box to box midfielder,and he’s not currently good enough to be a creative midfielder,so he’s much of a muchness right now ,no real use to Arsenal.keep him on the bench and play him in the next-gen games until he improves.

    Lay off Ramsey guys. He has been class the past 3-4 games when he has been central. He is better than frimpong, who I love, but he can’t ever stay on the pitch for a full 90. Even at the reserved he is getting sent off.

    And this game was always a must win game. Chelsea, city, united are NOTthe must win games. Those are the bonus points. We need to beat every team lower than us to qualify for champions league and also totenham away, which we normally do

    AW please f**k off to Spain please you are total shit no clue to what your team is doing. And the other thing AD in midfield for f**k sake man let him go and play for a school team co he will never cut it now not ever. Sick at looking at the whole team with half of them just on the take and not fit to play in div1. Our B team could win agents most prem teams but now I think arsenal lady’s stand a better chance
