As preparations continue for the short trip to North London, to take on Arsenal, we thought we’d take the opportunity to take a glimpse into the record books to come up with a few pointers as to how the game might go.
What we found makes for interesting reading.
For those looking for their daily dose of doom and gloom, fixtures against Arsenal might satisfy that craving.
It appears that the last 22 matches, against Arsenal, in all competitions have seen the Hammers win just 1, draw 4 and lose the remaining 17.
Continuing, on the same doom and gloom theme, it turns out West Ham have lost 28 Premier League games against Arsenal, which is more than against any other team.
But, it isn’t all doom and gloom.
When it comes to victories on Arsenal soil, West Ham fare remarkably well having won on 5 occasions, with only the Premier League giants of Manchester United and Liverpool beating that figure with 8 and 7 respectively.
