The home side have enjoyed a stellar first campaign under Slaven Bilic and are even threatening a top-four finish. A win in this clash would move the team from the east end level with fourth-place Manchester City in the Premier League table.

Much of the Hammers good form has been based on good home form and Bilic’s side are currently 13 games undefeated at the Boleyn Ground in the top-flight. Their season has stalled slight in recent weeks though, as thy have drawn their last three league games. The Hammers can be backed at odds of 29/10 with BetVictor to end that run of draws with a win.

French international Dimitri Payet has been a key player for the Irons this season and he can be backed at odds of 11/4 with Bet365 to find the net at any time during this clash.

Arsenal arrives at the Boleyn Ground still in with an outside chance of winning the Premier League title, despite trailing league leaders Leicester by 11 points. Arsene Wenger’s side does have a game in-hand, but that is still a big gap to recover.

The Gunners have at least shown some decent form in recent weeks, recording consecutive Premier League wins over Everton and Watford. Those wins may have come a tad too late to win the title though. The side from north London can be backed at odds of evens with Bet365.

A player who has performed well in those two victories has been Nigerian international winger Alex Iwobi. The youngster scored in both of those victories and can be backed at odds of 11/4 with Coral.

Bet Tip

Both of these teams are in decent form and I can see this game being a draw. You can back the draw at odds of 11/4 with Bet365.
