Arsenal Probable XI vs West Ham United


Arsenal host West Ham United in their first game of the new Premier League season.



Summer signing Petr Cech will make his first league appearance for the Gunners, following an excellent performance against former club Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday.

There is unlikely to be any swap in the defence with manager Arsene Wenger set to go with Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker for the central defensive partnership, with Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin to fit in on either side of the backline.

Francis Coquelin will act as the shield anchor alongside Aaron Ramsey, whilst Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will make up the attacking midfield.

Oliver Giroud is most likely to lead the attack given his excellent tally of five goals in five outings against the Hammers.
