Arsenal vs West Ham Betting Tips

Monday, December 26

London will have a huge derby battle on their hands on Monday as Arsenal will be looking to stay at the top of the Premier League table against West Ham.

Arsenal will be missing star signing Gabriel Jesus in this game, as his injury from the World Cup sees him out for an extended period of time.

The Gunners have been playing some pleasant football this season, with a bunch of quality wins over solid opponents.

Now is where the competition kicks up, though. Post-Christmas time is always an alarming time for most teams not named Manchester City.

Arsenal will need to get their second half campaign off running with a victory against West Ham and if not, could see a spiralled downturn starting this Monday.

West Ham is looking to turn their season around in the second half and need a big result in this game.

Their squad is way too talented to remain in their current position, and we are more than likely going to see a very different mentality after this international break.

Making use of the midfield dominance and attacking pace, West Ham and manager David Moyes will be itching to get back on the pitch and show their worth.

This is a tough game for Arsenal, and we can see some upsets going down. Prediction: West Ham to Win

Leeds United vs Manchester City Betting Tips

Wednesday, December 28

Leeds and Manchester City lock in for a primetime matchup on December 28.

Leeds have struggled defensively in recent few months, but they score plenty of goals.

They will be looking to at least draw a point out of this matchup, which seems highly unlikely.

Manchester City will finally be able to unleash Erling Haaland back into the goalscoring space, but also find the treasures of their star man coming back from Argentina, Julian Alvarez.

Look for this game to feature plenty of goals! Prediction: Manchester City to Win and Over 3.5 Goals.
