West Ham v Arsenal – A real mixed bag from the pundits this week.
Not too long ago this game would have been seen as a banker for Arsenal, not no more such is the form the Gunners are in.
I will start with BBC’s Mark Lawrenson, the former Liverpool defender is going for a West Ham win by a margin of 2-0. He does not even think that Arsenal will score against the Hammers.
His guest this week on his prediction column is non other than tennis superstar Andy Murray. The Scot does not think that Arsenal will lose but neither does he feel that they will win. The Olympic champion goes for a 1-1 draw.
Next up we have former Liverpool hitman Michael Owen writing on a betting blog. Just like Murray, he goes for a draw but as usual, he does not predict an actual scoreline.
Finally, we have Sky Sports pundit and former Arsenal ace Charlie Nicholas, he backs his former club to win. He is fairly confident that Freddie Ljungbers’s men will run out 3-1 winners.
For comparison, JustArsenal has gone with a 2-2 draw. So, we have one going for a West Ham win, one going for an Arsenal win and everyone else is predicting a draw.
The bottom line is that the vast majority do not feel that Arsenal will win. Hopefully, they will prove all the doubters wrong.
