Having not won in our last 7 PL games, we travel to the London Stadium to face a West Ham side, winless in their last 4 home games, sitting 16th in the table, only 3 points behind us!!
Our last away win was back in August, against Newcastle!! Sheesh!! So, needless to say I’m very nervous about this game (& not only because half of my family are Hammers!)
I’m hoping it’ll be 3rd time lucky for Freddie, who’s bound to get a warm reception from the home fans, having been a Hammer for the 2007-08 season.
I came across these interesting facts –
1) Aubameyang hasn’t scored against West Ham in 3 appearances.
2) We haven’t scored in our last 2 visits to the London Stadium.
3) West Ham have lost a PL high of 29 matches on a Monday. While only the Mancs (43) have won more than us (39)
I also saw that Felipe Anderson hasn’t scored/assisted in his last 8 appearances, oh great, we all know what will happen tonight!!
For them, our former keeper, Fabianski, is still out injured. Wilshere is a doubt. If selected, Mark Noble will make his 500th senior appearance 👏
For us, Ceballos is still out, Holding to be assessed.
This is the team I’d like to see –
Bellerin Chambers Luiz Kolasinac
Guendouzi Torreira Martinelli
Pepe Ozil Aubemeyang
We really need to get back to winning ways, as we’re too close to the bottom 3 for my liking!!
Oh jeez, Mike Dean is refereeing, so more than likely we’ll be playing against 12 men!! 😬
My heart says we’ll win 2-1, but my head says 2-2….. COYG!!!
