It will be an emotional afternoon at the Emirates as Arsenal take on West Ham in our first game since Arsene Wenger announced he’ll be leaving this summer.

Ozil is missing through illness while Wilshere and Kolasinac are out with ankle problems. Cech has a hip injury so Ospina starts in goal.

Aubameyang is left on the bench as Wenger’s gone with Lacazette through the middle while Bellerin, Monreal and Koscielny are all risked at the back.

These are the line-ups:


Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette.

Subs: Macey, Mertesacker, Holding, Chambers, Maitland-Niles, Nelson, Aubameyang

West Ham

Hart, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Rice, Creswell, Masuaku, Kouyate, Noble, Fernandes, Mario, Arnautovic.

Subs: Adrian, Cullen, Evra, Lanzini, Hugill, Carroll, Hernandez
