Arsenal line ups vs West Ham as Gabriel Jesus left out and Takehiro Tomiyasu decision made

Arsenal will have revenge on their mind once again as they travel to play West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday. The Gunners have used previous defeats to inspire convincing recent victories against Nottingham Forest and Liverpool, and will want to make it third time lucky at the London Stadium.

Much of the build up has focused on Arsenal’s celebrations after their win against Liverpool last weekend. Mikel Arteta though has insisted he has not even given the negative coverage a second’s thought.

Instead his mind has been on a crucial game against a West Ham side who Arsenal have failed to beat in their last three meetings. Arsenal may have got themselves back into the title race with a win last week, but they’ll know they still can’t afford to drop too many more points.

As a result, it’s crucial that Arteta gets his team selection spot on at the London Stadium. Luckily for him football.london‘s Arsenal writers Kaya Kaynak and Tom Canton are on hand to have their say on who he should pick.

I may as well skip straight to the defence because David Raya is in the kind of form right now that makes him pretty much undroppable in my eyes.

I think Ben White looks back so I’m keeping him at right back despite Takehiro Tomiyasu’s return from the Asian Cup. I do think the Japan international can be used on the left side of defence if Oleksandr Zinchenko isn’t fit. The Ukrainian’s creativity will be sorely missed against the tightly packed West Ham defence though.
