Arsenal confirm line-up Vs West ham for PL clash.

Arsenal under pressure: No Ozil, Bellerin benched, Torreira dropped.

Arsenal are under pressure to secure a much-needed win and keep the pressure on Chelsea when taking on West Ham at the London Stadium.

The Gunners have bounced back well from their embarrassing defeat to Liverpool towards the end of the month.

Unai Emery has recalled his big-guns after resting some key players for the FA Cup win last weekend with Bernd Leno, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka among those recalled.

The Gunners have traveled to West Ham for the early Premier League clash on Saturday and this is how they line up.

There is no Mesut Ozil in the squad despite being fully fit. It is understood he did not even make the journey, casting more doubt over his Arsenal future.

While Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal are only named on the bench after recovering from injury. Lucas Torreira is also named among the subs with Matteo Guendouzi starting ahead of him.

These are the teams:

West Ham

Fabianski, Zabaleta, Obgobba, Diop, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Antonio, Nasri, Anderson, Arnautovic.

Subs: Adrian, Masuaku, Obiang, Snodgrass, Diangana, Perez, Carroll.


Leno, Mustafi, Koscielny, Sokratis, Maitland-Niles, Sead Kolasinec, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi, Alex Iwobi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette.

Subs: Cech, Bellerin, Lichtsteiner, Monreal, Torreira, Ramsey, Nketiah.

Author’s take:

Mesut Ozil was expected to be involved at the London Stadium today but has been left out mysteriously.
