West Ham United vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

West Ham United will be looking to build on an excellent weekend result when they host London rivals Arsenal on Wednesday evening.

The Hammers stunned the champions Chelsea 1-0, thanks to an early Marko Arnautovic winner.

David Moyes’ side defended superbly for the remainder of the game and held on for a vital win.

Arsenal’s poor away record this campaign continued, as they were held away at Southampton on Sunday.

Charlie Austin’s early goal was cancelled out by a late Olivier Giroud header to leave the Gunners in fifth spot.

Team news
West Ham are highly likely to name the same XI that beat Chelsea, despite the potential return of Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez from injury.

Joe Hart will remain among the substitutes after Adrian impressed for a second consecutive match in goal.

Aaron Ramsey was forced off at the St. Mary’s on Sunday and is a big doubt here.

Jack Wilshere will replace the Welshman if required, whilst Rob Holding could be in line for a rare start in the back three.

Expected starting XI’s
West Ham (3-4-2-1): Adrian; Ogbonna, Reid, Cresswell; Zabaleta, Noble, Obiang, Masuaku; Arnatuovic, Lanzini; Antonio
Arsenal (3-4-2-1): Cech; Koscielny, Holding, Monreal; Bellerin, Xhaka, Wilshere, Kolasinac; Sanchez, Ozil; Lacazette
