Arsenal step into a second consecutive London derby as they take on West Ham at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal have made a nightmare start to the 2018-19 Premier League campaign after losing the first two matches for the first time since 1992. West Ham are not in a better position after suffering the same fate. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Arsenal suffered a first defeat against Chelsea after more than six matches, as the gunners lost 3-2 at Stamford Bridge. However, there were plenty of opportunities for Arsenal in this game.

West Ham failed to hold onto a lead at home, as Bournemouth were able to get a 2-1 win. The season opener witnessed the hammers being thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield.

The recent game between Arsenal and West Ham produced a 4-1 win for the gunners at the Emirates stadium. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a victory for Arsenal.

Match odds

West Ham are at odds of 9.00 to win the game, but this is not an attractive price considering that the hammers have only managed one victory at the Emirates Stadium in the last decade. Arsenal may have made a poor start to the campaign, but the team could have easily won against Chelsea if not for some disastrous finishing from the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Iwobi. Unai Emery witnessed a couple of glaring mistakes in terms of tactics and Arsenal are expected to play the game in a safe manner. Our preview would go with a win for Arsenal.

Arsenal vs West Ham draw odds: 5.00

West Ham win odds: 9.00

Correct Score odds

Arsenal were extremely good at opening up Chelsea in the recent game and the hammers may be in for a difficult evening if the gunners are entering into the game the same approach. West Ham also have a decent offence that can create problems for Arsenal’s slow back four. Marko Arnautovic will especially be happy with Arsenal playing the same high defensive line – which would give him spaces at the back. Our correct score prediction would go with an Arsenal 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

This may be a London derby but it has been filled with goals in recent times. Just in the last six games, there have been a total of 21 goals with Arsenal enjoying the share of 16 goals. There is unlikely to be a change on this front with both clubs having new managers at the helm. Our total goals prediction would choose over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a couple of glorious opportunities against Chelsea but the former Borussia Dortmund forward is unlikely to be affected by those misses excessively. He is looking to score his first goal against West Ham. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Aubameyang.
