Arsenal vs. West Ham prediction, odds, start time: English Premier League picks, best bets for December 26, 2022

Arsenal return to the English Premier League on Monday at Emirates Stadium, and the Gunners will face

West Ham on Boxing Day without one of their best players. Gabriel Jesus could miss a few months after

needing knee surgery following an injury sustained while playing for Brazil in the World Cup.

The Gunners (12-1-1) have a five-point lead over defending champion Manchester City

and have been playing excellent defense . They beat Lyon and AC Milan in friendly matches

at half-time before losing to Juventus. Arsenal have also lost to the Hammers just once since 2015

West Ham (4-2-9) sit 16th in the Premier League table and have struggled to find goals after a 2021-22 season 

which they finished seventh. The start is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. ET in London
