Get ready for a thrilling showdown as West Ham take on Arsenal in what promises to be a pivotal game for both teams, with each fighting for a different cause.
West Ham scraped a narrow 1-0 victory against Fulham, which propelled them to the 13th spot in the table, just three points ahead of the tightly congested relegation zone. The manager, David Moyes, has been under immense pressure due to his team's dismal performance throughout the season, despite splashing a staggering £179 million in the summer transfer window. With only four wins in their last 17 league games, they must start winning to secure their spot in the top league of England.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are determined to clinch their first title since 2004 and have been in sensational form this season. They hold the top spot away from home this season and are raring to go after their 2-2 draw at Anfield last week. As they face pressure from the in-form Manchester City, Arsenal will be aiming for nothing less than a win.
The team boasts one of the lowest average ages in the league, with their young, talented squad eager to make history. The top bookmakers in India have EPL odds with them.
The team must use their scratchy 1-0 victory against Fulham as a springboard to pick up momentum. Declan Rice has been a commanding presence for the team, leading from the front, while Soucek has provided excellent cover for their defence. However, Fulham was able to easily defend against their counter-attacking style, highlighting the need for the team to find new ways to create more scoring opportunities.
Scamacca and Pagueta are doubtful because of injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Lukasz Fabianski, Vladimir Coufal, Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Jarrod Bowen, Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice, Pablo Fornals; Danny Ings, Michail Antonio
Arsenal enters the game with a well-fought 2-2 draw at Anfield in their back pocket, having not lost a Premier League game since their defeat against Man City on February 16th. The Gunners are currently in fantastic form, scoring at an incredible rate and looking confident on the field. However, there is always a concern about how they handle pressure in the final stages of what could be an incredible league finish. It's a cat and mouse chase between them and Man City, and the stakes are high.
