West Ham United picked up their first win in six Premier League matches last weekend vs Southampton and next up, they take on Arsenal at the Emirates.

The Hammers have been having a woeful season and right now, they are 16th on the table but there’s very little chance that they can pick up a win vs the Gunners on Saturday.

West Ham United have won just two of their last 23 Premier League games against Arsenal and on top of that David Moyes has been dealing with a number of injury concerns which would make it really difficult of him to name his strongest XI this weekend.

West Ham United news vs Arsenal:

The Hammers picked up a 3-1 win vs the Saints last weekend and chances are that their manager will name an unchanged starting XI when they travel across London to take on Arsenal.

Fabianski has been a star player for West Ham United this season and he will surely start in goal while Diop and Ogbonna play in central defence.

Ryan Fredericks has undergone an operation for his shoulder injury and as per the latest reports, the player will be out till mid-April.

This means Ngakia will start at right-back while Aaron Cresswell will play at left-back.

Mark Noble and Declan Rice have been a steady pair in central midfield for West Ham United and they will once again start vs Arsenal while Fornals plays in a more advanced role.

January signing Jarrod Bowen is expected to keep his place in the starting XI and there’s whispers that both Felipe Anderson and Snodgrass will start the match on the bench.

West Ham United have lost their last 5 away matches in the Premier League and they will surely have to play out of their skins if they wish to pick up even a draw at the Emirates on Saturday.

West Ham’s predicted XI vs Arsenal:

Starting XI: Fabianski; Diop, Ogbonna, Ngakia, Cresswell; Mark Noble, Declan Rice, Fornals; Haller, Bowen, Michail Antonio.
