Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction at West Ham United


The next weekend of Premier League competition commences with a London derby that has the potential to be a very exciting game. Arsenal FC at West Ham United is a match-up of two teams with an attack that’s better than most teams in the league, but also a defense that can often be quite leaky.

All the ingredients are there for a potentially high scoring match that may have a lead change or two. The Gunners come in with a squad that’s received plenty of good news on the fitness front this week, and thus manager Unai Emery may have more options for selection than he’s had in recent weeks. Let’s take a look at who he might pick in his first team.
