Pablo Fornals will be tested prior to the clash and could be fit enough to take a place among the substitutes.
Here’s how we think the Scotsman will line his side up…
GOALKEEPER AND DEFENCE
Lukasz Fabianski – Perhaps enjoying his best for of the season recently. Long may it continue.
Vladimir Coufal – Consistent throughout the campaign and will need another big showing here.
Issa Diop – Given his opportunity due to injuries but hasn’t let anyone down.
Aaron Cresswell – A huge part to play trying to influence in an attacking sense whilst not relinquishing defensive duties.
Declan Rice – Yet another huge afternoon needed from the on-field captain. Plenty of quality in the Arsenal midfield that will need keeping a lid on.
Tomas Soucek – He and Rice get through the work of at least three men. Hasn’t scored for six matches.
Jarrod Bowen – His work rate on and off the ball will be crucial for the Hammers. Short on goals himself and will hope to put that right in the run-in.
Jesse Lingard – Huge boost having him back in the side. Should be on cloud nine after receiving his England recall this week.
Said Benrahma – Perhaps hasn’t featured as often as he might’ve liked but needs to start making an impact when given the chance.
Michail Antonio – Vitally important to the way West Ham play. Needs to keep defenders occupied.
