How Arsenal will line up vs West Ham today

Fellow forward Willian is also a doubt for Sunday’s clash after missing Thursday’s defeat to Olympiacos with a calf issue.

In their absence, Emile Smith Rowe and Nicolas Pepe are primed to start – but Gabriel Martinelli is pushing to be involved too.

Martin Odegaard and Thomas Partey should return to the starting line-up after being rested in midweek, while there is likely to be changes in defence too.

Cedric Soares is hoping to start at right-back, while Pablo Mari and Rob Holding could come into the middle of the defence to provide David Luiz with a rest.

Arsenal predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Cedric, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Pepe, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang 

Sunday 3.00pm GMT, Sky Sports

Arsenal squad from: Leno, Runarsson, Ryan; Bellerin, Cedric, Chambers, Gabriel, Holding, Luiz, Mari, Tierney; Ceballos, Elneny, Odegaard, Partey, Saka, Smith Rowe, Xhaka; Aubameyang, Balogun, Lacazette, Martinelli, Nelson, Nketiah, Pepe and Willian.
