Team News: West Ham vs. Arsenal
Arsenal return to Premier League action this evening as we travel across London to face West Ham.
The Gunners have always had a bit of a bitchy relationship with Hammers manager Sam Allardyce and this game sees the return of the animosity after Fat Sam spent a couple of years managing in the Championship.
The Arsenal line-up sees The BFG restored at centre back at the expense of Koscielny whilst Giroud`s impressive cameo in midweek sees him get a league start in place of The Ox.
Scorer of the 3 goal against Olympiacos Aaron Ramsey features in the first XI also.
Here`s the squad.
Arsenal team to play West Ham: Mannone, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Podolski, Gervinho, Giroud.
Substitutes: Martinez, Koscielny, Santos, Coquelin, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arshavin
