Lineups, starting 11, team news for West Ham vs Arsenal: Will Bukayo Saka be ready to face the Hammers?

Arsenal breathed new life into their Premier League title bid last weekend and will look to keep the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City when they travel to West Ham on Sunday.

Mikel Arteta’s side claimed a stirring 3-1 victory against Liverpool at Emirates Stadium, although there was an injury scare surrounding their opening goalscorer on the day.

West Ham beat Arsenal when the teams met on December 28, but the Gunners are back on song after three wins in a row and will hope to gain a measure of revenge against David Moyes’ men.

With City and Liverpool both in action a day earlier, Arteta and his players will be keen to make the most of any potential slip-ups by their title rivals and show they are very much alive in the race to  be crowned champions.

Here, The Sporting News takes you through the latest team news for West Ham vs. Arsenal and both sides’ projected starting 11s for this London derby.

Lineups, starting 11, team news for West Ham vs Arsenal

West Ham are once again set to be without influential playmaker Lucas Paqueta, who has not featured since suffering a calf injury in the reverse fixture.

Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is fit to feature after being substituted as a precaution during last weekend’s defeat at Manchester United.

Michail Antonio has returned to training following medial knee ligament damage but this game comes too soon for the striker as he begins the process of building fitness.

West Ham starting 11

West Ham projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): Areola (GK) — Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson — Soucek, Alvarez — Johnson, Ward-Prowse, Kudus — Bowen.

Injured: Antonio, Paqueta.

Bukayo Saka was substituted during the closing stages of Arsenal’s win over Liverpool after taking a blow on the ankle but Arteta is confident the England star will be ready to step out at London Stadium.

“He has been recovering this week and he looks okay,” the Gunners boss said. “We have a few still in contention.”

Gabriel Jesus missed the Liverpool game with a knee complaint and will be assessed, while a calf injury to Oleksandr Zinchenko could mean Takehiro Tomiyasu coming straight back in on his return from Asian Cup duty with Japan.

Arsenal starting 11

Arsenal projected lineup (4-3-3, right to left): Raya (GK) — White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu — Rice, Jorginho, Odegaard — Saka, Havertz, Martinelli.

Injured: Partey, Timber, Vieira.

Doubtful: Jesus, Zinchenko.
