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

Just the squad for this game, in my view. Now, we just have to be solid all round and it should be 3 points. Good luck lads!

While I would have liked to see Coquelin get some game time because his readiness may prove crucial for us some time soon, Ramsey has sure earned his place in the starting 11 today. Giroud just has to score today; the full backs should be whipping in crosses for him to test the West Ham defense aerially. Come On You Gunners!

Despite our great start, you always worried about the Hammers going on to score first. Diame is one to keep an eye on. We need to show a lot more composure in their area. 1-0 West Ham.

Giroud's movement and build up play has been fantastic all season. Finally pays off for him. First of many for this guy. Very talented player who has been receiving extremely unfair criticism.

Agreed GK. I've been impressed with how hard he works he's just needed a bit of luck. That said, he didn't bother waiting for some luck and just grabbed himself a goal off his own back. Nice work from Podolski too.

With regards to "Cathorla" I can't comment, I'm not Spanish, I'm led to believe that's how it's pronounced .... what I do know is that Arsenal is not pronounced "Arzenal" Chris Waddle you bell-end.

Giroud will score goals. We just need to whip crosses with better accuracy and he should make hay. Must say we started very well and got the Hammers defenders blocking shots al the time and their keeper did make a good save off Giroud as well.
