West Ham United Gate

West Ham take on Arsenal in the Under-21 Premier League.

West Ham host Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground on Monday evening, in the Under-21 Premier League.

The Hammers are going for five straight wins at Under-21 level, although the last time the two London rivals met - back in August - the Gunners won 5-1 at the Emirates.

This season, West Ham currently have a record of five wins in 12 games, whilst Arsenal have only played seven fixtures, but have managed six wins and just one loss from those games.

A win tonight could put the North London club within one point at the top of the Division 2 table. Conversely, West Ham could rise ahead of the Gunners with a victory, but they would have played five more games.

Terry Westley has opted to name Raphael Spiegel and Josh Cullen in his starting XI, whilst Arsenal head to the Boleyn Ground with Dan Crowley looking to continue his great season at youth level.

The biggest name involved is undoubtedly Reece Oxford, who will be looking to prove his first-team suitability to the watching Slaven Bilic.

The full line-ups are featured below:

West Ham starting XI: Spiegel, Knoyle, Page, Obiang, Hendrie, Oxford, Pike, Makasi, Gordon, Cullen, Parfitt-Williams

Subs: Scully, T.Brown, Onariase, J.Brown, Nasha

Arsenal starting XI: Macey, Sheaf, Robinson, Kamara, Bielik, Pleguezuelo, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Malen, Crowley, Willock

Subs: Huddart, Hinds, Bennacer, Mavididi, M.Bola
