Why you should back West Ham
The Hammers have been formidable playing at home in the EFL Cup. West Ham have lost only one of their last 10 League Cup matches at London Stadium, winning six games and drawing three others. The last time the Hammers hosted Arsenal, the teams drew 2-2 in a Premier League match in April.
In addition, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta may not put forth his best starting XI on Wednesday. Three days after the EFL Cup match, the Gunners hit the road to face Newcastle in Premier League play. Four days after that, they host Sevilla in a key Champions League showdown. With those important matches on the horizon, Arteta could choose to rotate his lineup to save some legs.

Why you should back Arsenal
The Gunners are coming off arguably their best performance of the season. On Saturday, Eddie Nketiah recorded a hat trick in a 5-0 blowout of Sheffield United. That win was even more impressive considering the team played without Gabriel Jesus and were playing just four days after a hard-fought 2-1 Champions League victory over Sevilla.
In addition, the Gunners face a West Ham side that is struggling. The Hammers are winless in their last four matches across all competitions, with three losses and one draw. They’ve been outscored 9-4 over that stretch. Since beating Chelsea and Brighton in August, West Ham’s only league victories have come over Luton and Sheffield, who both sit below the relegation line. See which team to pick here.
