West Ham United will face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

The West Ham United players were training on Friday ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Arsenal away from home.

The Hammers will head into the game at the Emirates Stadium in North London on the back of Europa League disappointment.

Slaven Bilic’s side will be determined to win against their London rivals, and one player who will be keen on getting into the team is Mauro Zarate.

The 28-year-old forward was training with the rest of the West Ham squad (see photo to the right) on Friday, and he will certainly be looking to start against the Gunners.

The Argentine attacker moved to the London outfit on a three-year contract from Velez Sarsfield in the summer of 2014, as reported by BBC Sport at the time.

Much was expected of the former Lazio star, but he struggled to make an impact at the Boleyn Ground, scoring two goals and creating seven chances in seven Premier League appearances.

Zarate was sent out on loan to London rivals Queens Park Rangers in the January transfer window, but the 28-year-old failed to do much of note at Loftus Road either.

The former Al-Sadd man could feature in just four league games for QPR, who got relegated to the Championship at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.
