West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has pointed out a weakness of Arsenal's ahead of Wednesday night's clash at the Emirates.
So is Bilic targeting revenge? With 33 points on board and a realisation that two wins out of their next eight league games should virtually guarantee safety, the Hammers look to be lacking motivation and fight as a result of which, have dropped a few levels - that they were able to hit in the first few games post the sale of Dimitri Payet, when they had a goal or a point to prove. "First we have to be solid and organised and concentrated".
Goalkeeper: We have something of a goalkeeper crisis to deal with as the Mirror reported earlier this evening that David Ospina is set to miss out tomorrow after suffering a back problem against Man City. We need everybody on board. When they lose the ball, they are vulnerable.
"Then when we get the ball we have to try and use the space and try to keep the ball to frustrate Arsenal and if we are fearless and confident then of course we have a chance against any team in this league".
Andy Carroll, the English forward, remains a threat for Arsenal.
"Arsenal" has traditionally plays well against the "West Ham".
The Hammers are in even worse form than Arsenal having picked up just two points from their last six matches, and Slaven Bilic's side will be underdogs at the Emirates Stadium despite the Gunners' recent slump.
"We did things that, for West Ham, broke the mould, like winning away at Liverpool and Manchester City and Arsenal".
Bilic's side have suffered four successive losses and go up against Arsenal on Wednesday, hoping they can end the run that has dragged them close to the relegation zone. There are a lot of games in April.
However, Arsenal now sit sixth in the table with 10 games left and are in real danger of missing out on Champions League football for the first time under Wenger.
Diafra Sakho is a doubt for the match, as is Michail Antonio.
