Arsenal travel to West Ham United on Saturday lunchtime as a slew of key players return to full training. Here is the Gunners’ predicted starting XI.
Arsenal return to Premier League duties a brief FA Cup hiatus last weekend on Saturday, travelling across London to face West Ham United. And in the week building up to the fixture, Unai Emery has been handed some rather welcome news: five players — Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Hector Bellerin and Mesut Ozil — returned to full training. Suddenly, the injury crisis does not seem quite so harsh.
So, with that in mind, here is the Gunners’ predicted starting XI.
It is a Premier League match. Bernd Leno starts.
