Team News: Arsenal
Mesut Özil (Back trouble), Mattéo Guendouzi (Fitness), Pablo Marí (Ankle Injury), Shkodran Mustafi (Knee Injury) and Gabriel Martinelli (Knee Injury) will not be taking part for Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta.
It looks as if The Gunners will possibly employ a 3-4-3 formation this time and select Bernd Leno, Kieran Tierney, Gabriel Magalhães, Rob Holding, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Daniel Ceballos, Mohamed Elneny, Hector Bellerin, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Willian.
Team News: West Ham United
Due to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, West Ham United manager David Moyes does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this game.
We’re of the thinking that The Hammers might make use of a 4-2-3-1 system with a starting lineup of Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, Angelo Obinze Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell, Tomáš Souček, Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen, Mark Noble, Robert Snodgrass and Sebastien Haller.
In this game, Arsenal can and should get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the other end, West Ham United will not find it easy to score a goal of their own but we do fancy them being dangerous at times, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Arsenal at full-time.
