Our football match prediction:
West Ham United and Arsenal square off against each other in a London derby on Saturday afternoon. The Hammers played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, while the Gunners recorded a 3-1 win over Bournemouth at their Emirates Stadium at the weekend. Arsene Wenger’s troops aim to stay in the race for the Premier League title and we predict that the visitors will go for a win in Saturday’s football game against Slaven Bilic’s troops. Alexis Sanchez score twice in the 3-1 win over Bournemouth and he is likely to make life difficult for the opposition back-line. West Ham sit in the danger zone ahead of the visit of Arsenal and, taking everything into account, away win appears on the horizon. The Gunners are eyeing their fifth away win of the season and you should bear in mind that they have already defeated the likes of Watford, Hull City, Burnley and Sunderland on the road, speaking of league fixtures.
Highlighted Player (Andre Ayew):
Andre Ayew is Ghanaian footballer who plays for Premier League side West Ham United as a winger. Ayew played for Olympique Marseille from 2007 to 2015 and he scored 44 goals in 160 appearances for the Stade Velodrome outfit. He won two Coupe de la Ligue trophies with Marseille (2011, 2012), but he failed to clinch the Ligue 1 title with OM. In 2015 Andre Ayew joined Swansea City on a free transfer and it has to be noted that he scored 12 goals in 34 league appearances for the South Wales outfit. At the end of the season the Ghanaian footballer signed a three-year deal with fellow Premier League team West Ham United for a club record fee of £20.5 million. Andre Ayew won the FIFA U-20 World Cup with Ghana and he participated in the Africa Cup of Nations final on two occasions with the Ghanaian national football team (2010, 2015). However, he failed to win the prestigious trophy with the Black Stars. His brother Jordan Ayew plays for Aston Villa as a striker.
Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title. Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since. Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
