Arsenal vs West Ham Predictions- What do the pundits think of the Hammers’ chances?

David Moyes will be looking for his first away win against Arsenal as a Premier League manager when his charges square off against the Gunners on Saturday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium. The hosts are managed by Mikel Arteta, whom Moyes coached as a player during his stint at Goodison Park.

Arsenal come into this game on the back of a win in the FA Cup against Portsmouth, while West Ham also registered an important victory last weekend against Southampton.

Here is a look at what the pundits have predicted for this Round 29 clash.

Mark Lawrenson: Lawro says it was “imperative” for West Ham to beat Southampton last weekend and that victory may have given them “something to build on”. Reckons that while West Ham have their issues, the Gunners are not entirely without problems either, and has predicted a 1-1 draw.

His celebrity opponent this weekend, singer Tom Grennan, expects this to be a goalless stalemate.

Charlie Nicholas: Nicholas reckons that there’s still an air of vulnerability in the West Ham defence and reckons Lukasz Fabianski will have a “busy day against his old club”. Has backed Arsenal to win 3-1.

Robbie Savage: Savage expects Arsenal to prevail 2-1.

Michael Owen: Owen isn’t convinced by West Ham’s shaky away record. Expects the Gunners to win, but has also predicted both teams to score.

Summary of predictions

Mark Lawrenson: Arsenal 1-1 West Ham
Tom Grennan: Arsenal 0-0 West Ham
Charlie Nicholas: Arsenal 3-1 West Ham
Robbie Savage: Arsenal 2-1 West Ham
Michael Owen: Arsenal to win, but both teams to score.

As mentioned above, Moyes has never won in 15 previous Premier League attempts at Arsenal (L11, D4) and West Ham have lost more games to the Gunners than any other side in the top flight. Can the Hammers help Moyes break that winless run?
