Arsenal play West Ham United in the Premier League just three days after an emotional rollercoaster penalty shootout victory over Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup.
Read the Gunners’ predicted starting XI here:
Despite Lukasz Fabianski’s penalty shootout heroics against Wigan Athletic, regular goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny should return to the Arsenal side to face West Ham United.
With Fabianski set to leave Emirates Stadium in the summer, it makes sense for Arsene Wenger to recall the younger Pole.
Bacary Sagna may have played 120 minutes of football against Wigan Athletic at the weekend, but the France international is likely to be thrown right back in at the deep end against West Ham, with Carl Jenkinson still not deemed ready for full first team action.
Per Mertesacker is practically ever present for Arsenal when fit this season, and should once again take his place in the Gunners back four against West Ham United.
The Big F**king German’s height will come in extremely useful against the aerial prowess of Andy Carroll.
