It’s sure to be an emotional day as Arsene Wenger takes charge of his first game since confirming he’ll leave Arsenal at the end of the season when West Ham visit the Emirates this afternoon.

Wenger has named a surprisingly strong line-up with our first choice back-four all playing as Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal line-up in defence.

David Ospina starts in goal with Petr Cech ruled out with a hip injury, Aaron Ramsey returns after recovering from a nasty cut but Jack Wilshere is still out with an ankle problem.

Wenger has opted to risk Alexandre Lacazette to get him sharp for Thursday’s Europa League game so Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has to make-do with a place on the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal

Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette.

Subs: Macey, Mertesacker, Holding, Chambers, Maitland-Niles, Nelson, Aubameyang

West Ham

Hart, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Rice, Creswell, Masuaku, Kouyate, Noble, Fernandes, Mario, Arnautovic.

Subs: Adrian, Cullen, Evra, Lanzini, Hugill, Carroll, Hernandez
