West Ham v Arsenal

TV: Sky Sport Main Event/Premier League, 2pm

David Moyes will be happy that West Ham have managed a a bit of a turnaround, winning three of their last four before the Europa Conference League draw on Thursday night

The Hammers have been struggling this season though and now they face Arsenal. That’s a different kettle of fish!

They’ve taken 35 points away from home this season – that’s five more than any other team in the league. They’ve won seven of the last nine on their travels too, they’re scoring for fun away from the Emirates and they’ve conceded the fewest number of goals on the road this season too.

We saw how good Arsenal were in the first half at Anfield and West Ham aren’t scoring enough goals.

What does it all point to? It should be a relatively comfortable win for Arsenal, though I do think West Ham can nick a goal too.

It’s normally Manchester United scoring late goals that we’re used to – against Sevilla it was the other way around.

That’ll really have hit them hard. Two own goals as well was disastrous too. With Harry Maguire, you wonder what more can go wrong for him – not that I think he played badly, but when things go wrong for you sometimes they just seem to keep going wrong.

I thought they’d win against the Sevilla and it didn’t work out but they’re still massive favourites for me against Forest. I think it should be comfortable for them.

Forest have scored just 24 goals this season in the league, only Everton have scored fewer, and they’re conceding at over twice that rate. But I still fancy them to nick one here because they’ve managed to net at least once in each of their last 13 home Premier League games.

That’s quite a stat and I think it means that the home team will get on the scoreboard on Sunday, but in a losing a cause.
