[Teams] West Ham vs Arsenal: Confirmed Line-Ups

By on December 26, 2013

Arsenal take on West Ham at Upton Park this afternoon looking to reclaim top spot of the Premier League.

The Gunners head into the festive fixtures sitting second on goal difference from Liverpool but can put the pressure on their rivals ahead of their clash with Manchester City later in the day.

Arsene Wenger has surprisingly named a near full-strength side with just one change from the team that played Chelsea on Monday, with Santi Cazorla coming in for Tomas Rosicky. Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud, who were expected to be rested, both start.

Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:

West Ham

Adrian, O’Brien, Tomkins, Collins, McCartney, Jarvis, Nolan, J Cole, Noble, Diame, C Cole

Subs: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Diarra, Taylor, Maiga, Collison, Rat

Arsenal

Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil, Walcott, Giroud

Subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Monreal, Flamini, Gnabry, Bendtner, Podolski
