Confirmed: Arsenal v West Ham United line-ups

Arsenal and West Ham United will face each other at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League this afternoon…

Arsenal will be looking to kick off their 2015-16 Premier League campaign with a win at home this afternoon.

The Gunners will take on London rivals West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s side will head into the encounter as favourites. Not only do Arsenal have home advantage, but they also have better players and a better team.

West Ham will also be keen on starting their league campaign on a positive note, especially as they have failed to progress to the group stage of the Europa League.

Under new manager Slaven Bilic, there is renewed optimism among the Hammers fans, all of whom will be hoping to see the side finish in the top eight of the Premier League this season.

Today’s game at the Emirates Stadium in North London promises to be an exciting one, and there should be a few goals.

This is how Arsenal and West Ham will line up:

Arsenal XI: Cech, Debuchy, Mertesacker ©, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud

Subs: Ospinna (GK), Gibbs, Chambers, Gabriel, Arteta, Walcott, Sanchez

West Ham United XI: Adrian, Tomkins, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Oxford, Noble ©, Kouyate, Payet, Zarate, Sakho

Subs: Randolph (GK), Collins, Poyet, Nolan, Jarvis, Lanzini, Maiga
