Our football match prediction:
A place in the League Cup semi-finals will be at stake when Arsenal and West Ham United face each other at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Gunners aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Newcastle United and, seeing that they have slim chances of winning the Premier League title, we predict the hosts will take the League Cup game very seriously. Arsene Wenger’s troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we believe they will emerge triumphant in the London derby. The Hammers have been in a fine form of late and, no doubt, new coach David Moyes is doing a good job. However, seeing that Arsenal do not suit West Ham, we are tempted to put our money on Alexis Sanchez and Co. In their last meeting at Emirates Stadium the Gunners recorded a routine 3-0 win over the Hammers.
