After celebrating like they had won the Champions League at Wembley with a victory on penalties against Championship side Wigan, surely there will be an open top bus parade if Arsenal beat West Ham tonight?
Fourth place has been embarrassingly celebrated like a trophy in recent years with Arsenal claiming the prize over Spurs last season. Everton who host Manchester United on Sunday currently sit 2 points ahead of Arsenal in the race for fourth place, making tonight a must win game for Wenger’s men.
West Ham ended a three game losing streak with victories over Hull and Sunderland, three points away from the magical forty point mark West Ham look to have recovered from a sticky January spell, in which many supporters thought their from could send them back into the Championship.
Mathematically, West Ham are still not safe from relegation but a good result at the Emirates would give Sam Allardyce’s side a massive boost for the remaining games.
Arsenal have several key players injured for the tie, Tomas Rosicky and Laurent Koscielny could start after not featuring at Wembley. West Ham skipper Kevin Nolan is a doubt for the game after picking up a Hamstring injury at Anfield.
