Arsenal desperately need a win when we take on West Ham at the London Stadium this afternoon.

Mikel Arteta has made some changes from the side that beat Liverpool last time out but David Raya is among those who keep their place as he starts between the sticks once again.

Ben White continues at right-back for Arsenal while Gabriel Magalhaes partners William Saliba in the middle of the back four. Jacub Kiwior comes in at left-back as Oleksandr Zinchenko is ruled out with a calf issue while Takehiro Tomiyasu isn’t included in the squad.

Declan Rice starts against his former club after his big-money move to Arsenal from West Ham last summer. Martin Odegaard captains the team again while Leandro Trossard is recalled to start today.

Kai Havertz keeps his place in the starting eleven while Bukayo Saka starts once again on the right flank. Gabriel Martinelli also retains his place on the left wing but Gabriel Jesus is still out with a knee injury. Emile Smith Rowe is also not included in the squad.

These are the teams:
