so we're all set for the morrow...
another must-win game... this time against the Arse. And how's our record against the Arse?
Well it ain't great...
West Ham have won just one of the past eight Premier League meetings (D2, L5).
Arsenal have earned four successive home victories against West Ham in all competitions, and won eight of their last nine in the Premier League.
West Ham have lost 30 Premier League matches against the Gunners, more than they have against any other side.
West Ham have lost four of their past six Premier League games but did win against Southampton last time out.
They have the worst form in the division over the past eight matches.
West Ham have lost 22 points from a winning position this campaign, five more than any other club.
The Hammers have a point fewer than they did at this stage in 2010-11, the most recent season in which they were relegated.
Each of Sebastien Haller's 31 goals in the major European leagues has been scored inside the penalty area (seven for West Ham and 24 for Eintracht Frankfurt).
David Moyes hasn't won any of his 15 Premier League away games against Arsenal (D4, L11). No manager in Premier League history has ever gone more away fixtures against one team without winning.
(who the fupp would hire someone with credentials like that???? oh yeah...)
so that's all well and good...
