Arsenal confirmed line-up vs West Ham: Wenger delights fans with key change, system switch too

Posted by

Arsenal face West Ham United at the London Stadium on Wednesday night hoping to boost their top-four aspirations with a win against the Hammers.

The Gunners were held to a disappointing draw at Southampton at the weekend, and so Arsene Wenger will be desperate to get back to winning ways to ensure that they stay on pace to finish in the Champions League qualification spots.

West Ham host them fresh from defeating rivals Chelsea at home last time out and so David Moyes and his men will be in buoyant mood, but it remains to be seen whether or not they can add Arsenal as a scalp in the same week.

Wenger has opted for four changes in this one, although it starts with the formation as the back three is gone with a 4-3-3 now in place, based on the club’s official post below.

Jack Wilshere finally gets a starting berth after impressing in the Europa League this season, while fresh from his goalscoring heroics at the weekend after grabbing the all-important equaliser at Southampton, Olivier Giroud gets the nod up front instead of Alexandre Lacazette.

In turn, Wenger will hope his changes have the desired affect against West Ham, with many supporters delighted to see Wilshere back in the starting line-up in particular.
