Title-chasing Arsenal face a tricky trip to the London Stadium to take on a West Ham United side in the mix for European places on Sunday afternoon (14:00).

Arsenal have got their season back on track with three straight wins, the most recent of those a 3-1 victory over league leaders Liverpool at the Emirates.

West Ham are going through a tough spell, having failed to win any of their last six assignments in all competitions, but they have tasted success over the Gunners twice this season and will be eager for more glory.

We have constructed a 9/1 Bet Builder for you to take a look at ahead of this contest.

West Ham or Draw - Double Chance

No win in six doesn't make for great reading for West Ham heading into this clash, but when you delve deeper you will see that four of these matches have ended in draws and they have been competitive during this period.

The Hammers have been one of the strongest sides at home this season and they are unbeaten in their last 10 fixtures at the London Stadium, while only Manchester City and Everton have come away from this ground with all three points this term.

David Moyes' side are a force to be reckoned with in front of their own fans and that doesn't bode well for Arsenal, who haven't been the strongest of travellers this season,

Mikel Arteta's men were on a four-game winless run away from before managing to edge past relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest in their most recent road outing.

That lack of consistency on their travels could be the reason they are beaten to the title and the value play here looks to be backing West Ham in the double chance market.

Over 2.5 goals

One thing this fixture should have is goals, with West Ham failing to score in just two of their 11 home league assignments and Arsenal hitting the back of the net in nine of their 11 away top-flight fixtures.

Over 2.5 goals has landed in the Gunners' last four Premier League games, while this same bet has proven successful in two of the Hammers' last three matches.

When these two met at the London Stadium back in November in the League Cup, West Ham ran out 3-1 winners and another high-scoring affair could be on the cards.

Edson Alvarez to be booked

Wrapping up this Bet Builder is for West Ham midfielder Edson Alvarez to be shown a card and the probability of this looks high, given the fact he has been shown seven yellows from 19 league outings.

The 26-year-old has put in 48 tackles, only Emerson (64) has more for the Hammers, while the Mexico international's foul count of 23 is the fourth-highest in the squad.

With Arsenal possessing a number of fast, quick-footed players, Alvarez will have to put a fair amount of work in during the contest and he may fall foul of the referee again.
