Arsenal v West Ham: Predicted line up

Arsenal will take on West Ham tonight at the Emirates.

After last night’s results, Arsenal are in 6th place but a win tonight would lift them back above Manchester United and into 5th.

With Manchester City playing Chelsea it could be a chance to close the gap to fourth.

There are a couple of injury concerns heading into the game. Most importantly, Laurent Koscielny will miss out with an Achilles injury. Gabriel will likely come in but personally I would rather see Per Mertesacker or Rob Holding.

Francis Coquelin will likely miss the game as well after missing training yesterday.

David Ospina will also miss out, meaning Emiliano Martinez will get a rare start. It could be a big chance for Martinez to stake his claim for the no.2 spot.

Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both fit again after missing the game with Manchester City and I would expect to see them both come straight back in.

The only other change I see happening is Giroud for Welbeck. We know what a threat West Ham are with Andy Carroll and Giroud could be needed when defending set pieces.
