What is the team news?

Arsenal’s injury problems are not looking any better, after Laurent Koscielny was injured before their FA Cup win against Blackpool.

He joins Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal, Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on the sidelines.

But the Gunners could see the comeback of young Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos after he returned to training.

West Ham also have an injury crisis on their hands, with Fabian Balbuena, Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic among them.

Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere, Manuel Lanzini, Ryan Fredericks and Winston Reid are all expected to return at some stage this season – but Carlos Sanchez will not play until the 2019/20 campaign.
