Wenger To Make 1 Change: Predicted Arsenal Starting XI To Face West Ham

Arsenal will be looking to put some pressure on the top two when they take on West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech returned to the squad last weekend but was only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench after recovering from a calf injury. However, after getting another weeks training under his belt the Czech ace should be back in the starting eleven on Saturday.
Defence: I think that will be Wenger’s only change from the team that’s won consecutive games against Everton and Watford which means Per Mertesacker is expected to remain on the bench with Gabriel once again starting alongside Laurent Koscielny at the back.
Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal should retain their places in the full-back positions.
Midfield: Aaron Ramsey is set to make his return to the squad after recovering from a thigh injury that’s kept him out for over a month but it remains to be seen whether the Welshman will come straight back in to the side.
Mohamed Elneny has impressed during Ramsey’s absence so I think we’ll see Arsene stick with the Egyptian international alongside Francis Coquelin this weekend.
Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky are set to step-up their comebacks with run-outs for the under-21’s tomorrow but they obviously won’t be in contention for the first team just yet so remain unavailable along with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Santi Cazorla.
Attack: Alex Iwobi put in another excellent performance against Watford last weekend so I think we’ll see the youngster retain his place in attack alongside Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez with the likes of Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell once again among the substitutes.
Danny Welbeck is likely to start up front ahead of Olivier Giroud despite the Frenchman’s excellent goal-scoring record against the Hammers.
Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
