THE TEAM NEWS

WEST HAM

  • The win over Chelsea was only a temporary reprieve for boss Manuel Pellegrini who is back under pressure after the midweek loss at Wolves.
  • Antonio missed that game with a slight knock but he should return for this game which is a boost after his excellent display at Chelsea.
  • With Snodgrass now carrying a knock, Antonio may come in on the right wing with Haller retaining his place up front for this London derby.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Martin; Fredericks, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Noble, Rice; Antonio, Felipe Anderson, Pablo Fornals; Haller

Unavailable: Fabianski (Injured), Lanzini (Injured), Wilshere (Injured), Reid (Injured)

Doubtful: Antonio (Injured), Snodgrass (Injured)

ARSENAL

  • Arsenal are still without a win under interim coach Freddie Ljungberg after a poor showing at the Emirates in defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.
  • They have picked up just one win in their last nine away games so Ljungberg is tasked with improving their miserable form on their travels.
  • Ljungberg will assess the fitness of his men after their clash with Brighton on Thursday and he may consider changes to keep them fresh.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Leno; Chambers, Mustafi, David Luiz, Tierney; Xhaka, Guendouzi; Saka, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette

Unavailable: Dani Ceballos (Injured)

Doubtful: Holding (Injured), Bellerin (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

These two London clubs come into this derby with plenty of pressure on them to get a win and that should make for an entertaining if tense affair. West Ham's last four matches at home in the league have seen both teams scoring and there is every chance that this will follow suit against Arsenal.
