Predicted West Ham side to play Arsenal: Bilic makes changes

Upton Park

Here is how we predict West Ham United and Arsenal will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 3rd December 2016 at 17:30. Venue: London Stadium, London

Odds: West Ham 18/5, Draw 14/5, Arsenal 3/4

West Ham United welcome Arsenal to the London Stadium this weekend for their latest Premier League encounter.

The Hammers will be smarting after their 4-1 defeat against Manchester United in the quarter-final of the EFL Cup, but they will at least take confidence from their previous visit to Old Trafford just days earlier, when they drew 1-1 with Jose Mourinho’s men.

West Ham are currently 16th in the table, just a single point above the drop zone and with plenty of work to be done in the weeks and months ahead.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic

As for Arsenal, they are fourth, three points behind leaders Chelsea with 13 matches on the board.

In early team news, West Ham are without Diafra Sakho, Sam Byram and Reece Oxford but Andy Carroll could return to the squad after his latest spell on the side-lines.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger before the match

Arsenal cannot call on Hector Bellerin, Per Mertesacker, Santi Cazorla or Danny Welbeck, while Mathieu Debuchy is rated at only 25 per cent to recover from a hamstring injury.

With all that in mind here is how we expect the two sides to line up on Saturday afternoon:
