Arsenal are under huge pressure to end their slump and get back to winning ways with victory over West Ham at the London Stadium this evening.
Interim boss Freddie Ljungberg has made a number of changes from the side that lost 2-1 to Brighton last Thursday night with Alexandre Lacazette the big casualty as he drops to the bench. Gabriel Martinelli has been handed a start in attack.
Nicolas Pepe is also recalled after making a fine impression off the bench last week as he joins Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the Arsenal attack this evening. Bukayo Saka and Reiss Nelson are named on the bench.
Kieran Tierney comes in at left-back while Calum Chambers partners Sokratis in the middle of the back four. David Luiz makes way while Ainsley Maitland-Niles joins him on the bench.
Lucas Torreira keeps his place alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield so Matteo Guendouzi has to settle for a place among the substitutes.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Martin, Fredericks, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Snodgrass, Noble, Rice, Fornals, Felipe Anderson, Antonio
Subs: Zabaleta, Roberto, Sanchez, Haller, Diop, Masuaku, Holland
Leno; Bellerin, Chambers, Sokratis, Tierney; Torreira, Xhaka, Pepe, Ozil, Martinelli; Aubameyang
Subs: Lacazette, Maitland-Niles, Luiz, Nelson, Martinez, Guendouzi, Saka
