Arsenal v West Ham predictions- What do the pundits say?

It’s a clash between two teams with high profile new managers, who are both looking for their first points of the new Premier League season after suffering defeats in their opening two games of the 2018/19 campaign.

Will Unai Emery get his first league win as Arsenal manager? Or will Manuel Pellegrini get the better of his opposite number at the Emirates? Here is a look at what pundits predict for this Matchweek 3 fixture.

Mark Lawrenson: Lawro says that West Ham were “hopeless defensively” in their games against Liverpool and Bournemouth, and has predicted a 2-0 win for Arsenal.

Lawro’s guest opponents this weekend (Idris Elba and Aml Ameen) have predicted a 6-0 win for Arsenal. Yes, you read that right, six goals to nil– looks they they have little faith on West Ham’s abilities to turn things around!

Paul Merson: Merson says he sees “nothing different” from this West Ham side in comparison to last season’s team, and has gone with a 3-0 win to Arsenal.

Michael Owen: Owen is the only pundit who thinks West Ham will score a goal this weekend- he reckons Arsenal’s defending “still leaves something to be desired”. He has gone for a 2-1 win to the Gunners.
