West Ham are all set to host Arsenal at the London Stadium on Sunday in a Premier League battle. The Hammers haven’t tasted a victory in the last five games and will be eager to get one. The Gunners, on the other hand, recently dominated Liverpool 3-1 and would like to carry on their run to stay near the top of the points table.
West Ham United vs Arsenal: Talking Tactics
David Moyes will set up a 4-2-3-1 formation and ask his team to sit back like they did in the previous games. They will rely on solid defending around their goalpost and look to produce rapid counter-attacks to score goals.
Mikel Arteta, on the other hand, will demand his side to control the possession and play with a high tempo. The Gunners will try to put pressure on the opponents and breach the low block of West Ham United. They will also rely on set pieces to create chances.

Jurrien Timber (torn ACL), Thomas Partey (thigh), and Fabio Vieira (groin) will miss the match because of injuries. Gabriel Jesus (knee), Takehiro Tomiyasu (International Duty), and Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) may also remain absent.
Arsenal Predicted XI
Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Rice, Jorginho; Saka, Havertz, Martinelli.
West Ham United
Vladimír Coufal and Kurt Zouma need to have an almost perfect game to stop the fierce attacking lineup of Arsenal. Ben Johnson and Jarrod Bowen will also be crucial to build on the counterattack.
Kai Havertz and Gabriel Martinelli will be expected to create danger in the final third while the role of Jorginho and Declan Rice cannot be ignored either.
