West Ham United turn out to be a boon or bane for Arsenal?

Arsenal's hopes that city rivals Tottenham will hinder Manchester City's progress have been dashed. Now, Arsenal's last hope lies with another London club whose captain (Declan Rice) they 'hired' at the start of the season, namely West Ham. Tottenham was forced to give up when they hosted Man City in the postponed match in Week 34 of the 2023/2024 Premier League, Wednesday (15/5/2024) and the Vistors lost 0-2 to the Citizens.

Norwegian striker Erling Haaland scored two Man City goals in the match in North London. The 23-year-old star forward scored the first goal in the 51st minute, and the second goal he scored from the penalty spot in the 90+1 minute. This victory brought Man City to the top of the standings and now they are two points ahead of Arsenal with only one week remaining. In the final week, Man City and Arsenal will both play at home, Arsenal will host Everton, while Man City will host West Ham. Arsenal is of course ready to fight it out to beat Everton at the Emirates Stadium. At the same time, they also have to hope that Hammers can tackle Man City at the Etihad Stadium. However, looking at the existing statistics, it is unlikely that the Gunners' hopes will come true.

In the first meeting this season, West Ham was defeated by Man City at home with a scoreline of 1-3. West Ham took the lead through James Ward-Prowse's goal in the 36th minute, however, Man City finally won through goals from Jeremy Doku in the 46th minute, Bernardo Silva in the 76th minute and Erling Haaland in the 86th minute. With this result, it means that West Ham has always lost the last three matches against Man City in the Premier League.
