West Ham v Arsenal: Projected lineups
West Ham continue to fall down the table as they have three losses in their last four and the injuries to key first team players remains an issue.
The Hammers have only scored twice in their last four matches as well as they will have to manage more than that if they hope to have a chance to upset Arsenal when they travel to the Boleyn Grounds.
Arsenal head across London on the back of a frustrating goalless draw with Chelsea that saw them fail to reclaim their place at the top of the Barclay’s Premier League.
Arsene Wenger needs his side to come away with three points if they are to have hope of going top before the new year as Liverpool have a great chance to earn a valuable three points against Manchester City in the afternoon’s biggest match of the day.
Hammers XI: Jaaskelainen; Demel, Collins, McCartney, Rat; Noble, Nolan; Cole, Morrison, Jarvis; Cole.
Gunners XI: Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs; Ramsey, Flamini; Walcott, Ozil, Cazorla; Giroud.
