Arsenal vs West Ham Preview

Arsenal face West Ham United in the Carabao Cup tomorrow and the Gunners will be looking to secure their place in the next round of the competition with a win.

The last time these two sides faced each other, the match ended in a draw. A win here is a must and therefore the approach from both teams is likely to be a different one here.

West Ham have improved a lot since the arrival of David Moyes. They have managed to win two of their last three. The other result was a draw against Arsenal. The Hammers have managed to keep a clean sheet in their last three as well.

This should be a fascinating contest between two rival clubs who are in decent form right now.
