Arsenal will be looking to continue their strong recent form with a win away at West Ham United this weekend.
The Gunners have won their last two competitive fixtures, coming out on top against Fulham in the Premier League on New Year’s Day and defeating Blackpool in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend.
A more testing proposition awaits Unai Emery and his side on Saturday, however, as Manuel Pellegrini and his side bid to cause an upset at the London Stadium.
West Ham have been inconsistent throughout the campaign but will undoubtedly pose a threat to a perennially shaky Arsenal backline.
Take a look at how we expect the Gunners to line up against the Hammers.
It is likely that Leno will take his usual place between the sticks for this clash.
On the right-hand side of a defensive three, Mustafi is set to get the nod.
In the heart of the defence, Sokratis is poised to start against West Ham.
Koscielny is in line to start for the Gunners as a left-sided central defender.
Operating as a right wing-back, it is likely that Bellerin will play against West Ham.
Torreira is poised to start in central midfield. He’ll be hoping to get the better of Declan Rice.
Emery could opt for Matteo Guendouzi against West Ham but it is likely that Xhaka will be given the nod.
Monreal could be set to start on the left flank on Saturday afternoon.
In a creative role behind the striker, it is likely that Ozil will play against West Ham.
Lacazette could be handed the chance to continue his recently impressive run of displays.
Aubameyang is set to lead the line and will be desperate to continue his chase for the Golden Boot.
