West Ham will be without three centre-backs for the game against Arsenal this evening. Issa Diop is making a quicker than expected recovery from an ankle injury but he’s still not available.
Angelo Ogbonna, meanwhile, is back on the grass after returning from a serious knee problem but manager David Moyes doesn’t believe the Italian will play again this season. Craig Dawson is suspended after his sending off against Chelsea last weekend.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Play Arsenal:
Fabianski, Johnson, Alese, Zouma, Masuaku, Noble, Fornals, Soucek, Vlasic, Yarmolenko, Benrahma
Arsenal should have Bukayo Saka available despite the winger picking up a minor knock against Manchester United, but Thomas Partey (thigh) and Kieran Tierney (knee) are both sidelined.
Arsenal’s Predicted XI:
Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares, Elneny, Odegaard, Xhaka, Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli
The bookies have made the Gunners the favourites with Coral pricing them at 5/6 odds-on to win. A draw is 3/1 with Unibet while a West Ham victory is 18/5 at BetVictor.
