Team News

  • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski missed the defeat at Chelsea through illness but both are expected to be available here.
  • Arsenal remain without Mikel Arteta in midfield so Diaby is expected to stand in once again, while Cazorla should return to a more central position after starting out wide on Sunday.
  • Olivier Giroud could lead the line again, providing a bit of extra height that may be helpful against a team like West Ham.
  • Francis Coquelin is out with a hamstring injury.
  • West Ham have no fresh injury concerns after the draw with QPR on the weekend, though Marouane Chamakh cannot play against his parent club.
  • Carlton Cole should come back in up front having replaced Chamakh around the hour mark at Upton Park, while Andy Carroll is still unlikely to make his long awaited return.
  • Joey O'Brien came through the QPR game unscathed and should retain his place at left back.


  • Having lost their last two matches - against Manchester City and Chelsea - Arsenal will probably be glad to be back at the Emirates and facing a West Ham side who have only won 1 of their last 7 Premier League matches.
  • The Gunners have only won 5 of their 10 home games in the league this season, but they have not lost or conceded a single goal at home to West Ham since 2007.
  • Furthermore, the Hammers have a terrible away record this season, scoring only 5 goals in 10 away matches, of which they have won two. They will be unlikely to get much from this game and and could well continue their run without scoring at Arsenal.
