Matchday: Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: Arsenal v West Ham United
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): Sat 25 Aug 15:00
Arsenal are preparing for their third Premier League match of the season on Saturday as West Ham United visit the Emirates.
Jack Wilshere will garner more than a little attention from Gunners fans as he returns to the Emirates for the first time since his move away from the club.
But Unai Emery and his team will attract even more. The Spaniard will be hoping to win his first match as Arsenal’s head coach but he will have to do so without a number of players.
The club has confirmed that four first-team players are still out injured but remain optimistic on their return dates.
- Arsenal prepare loan offer for striker with two goals in 32 games
- Ex-Arsenal boss Unai Emery set to become next Newcastle manager
- ‘Unhappy’ Arsenal striker will only stay if one promise is met
Sead Kolasinac is set to return to training in October but the club are hoping that the likes of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Carl Jenkinson and Laurent Koscielny will all return in November. That much hasn’t changed this week as the Gunners continue with a near full strength team.
