Arsenal must continue their winning run to maintain third place in the premier league as the battle for CL places heats up.
Tottenham and Man United will be playing on Sunday and a draw will be best case for the Gunners to strengthen their position.
The North Londoners face Sam Allardyce’s West Ham United in the premier league today and Arsenal should be considered favorites to win at the Emirates, especially after beating Man United at Old Trafford.
Hammers are in poor form lately and that also gives Arsenal the edge. Manager Arsene Wenger has provided a team news for the contest vs West Ham.
Alex Oxlade Chamberlain suffered a hamstring injury and hence will be out for the West Ham game for sure as Arsene stated:
“It’s a classic hamstring. That means he will be out for three weeks, four weeks maximum. He will not be available for England as well.”
Some boost for Arsenal as far as midfield is concerned as Flamini is fit and available for selection.
Winter signing Gabriel Paulista was in form before he got injured, fortunately he will be returning this Sunday.
Mikel Arteta had returned to training but Wenger believes that it will take another three weeks for the captain to return to action.
