With such a difficult schedule, Arsenal didn't get a single point from the first two rounds. But they played two of their most difficult games from the early start. In the first round they were defeated in home from City, a team that were the Champions and are the no1 favorite to get this title again. Arsenal tried to get a point from the game against the 'Citizens' but they were eventually defeated 0-2. They travelled to Chelsea for the second round where they were losing 2-0 early in the first half until they tied just before the first half. That wasn't enough as they conceded the 3rd goal at 81' (3-2). They are searching for their first win and now there are prerequisites to succeed.
'There are prerequisites' means that West Ham had bad performances in first two rounds. I don't want to be mean against them but the almost brand new team of Pellegrini ( 9 signings, >110 millions overall) don't seem to make an impact on their journey. We can overlook the 0-4 defeat against Liverpool, but the defeat from Bournemouth in the second round proved that they have signs of weakness. They scored from the penalty spot in the first half, but in the second half not only they didn's score again, but also they lost the control of the game. They conceded two goals in 6' and the overturn as well since the 1-2 was the final score.
Arsenal have won West Ham 9 times the last ten years in home. Arsenal target only the win, their first in thiw new era, after A.Wenger. I would choose Arsenal's win at 1.41 with a 5 points stake.
