West Ham team news
The main question mark surrounding West Ham ahead of this game is whether Alphonse Areola will be fit to play, after he was subbed off at half-time against Manchester United last week. Although, as per Premier Injuries, he has a 50% chance of playing this weekend as David Moyes said: "We took a precaution with Alphonse. We just thought that we didn't need to take the risk; we didn't need to take any chance. Hopefully, he'll be OK."
The other two players who will be ruled out for West Ham United are Michail Antonio through a knee injury and Lucas Paqueta who should hopefully be back the following week.
Arsenal team news
Arsenal have significantly more absentees than West Ham, which works in David Moyes' favour. In defence, Jurrien Timber is missing through injury and so too is Oleksandr Zinchenko, meanwhile Takehiro Tomiyasu is on international duty, so he won't compete in this match.
In midfield, Thomas Partey is injured as per usual, while Fabio Vieira is close to a return but he won't play in this match.
In attack, Gabriel Jesus is the main concern as he will be assessed ahead of the game, after missing the last match against Liverpool. Bukayo Saka should be fine to play after picking up a knock.

West Ham vs Arsenal prediction
West Ham's showing against Manchester United was not good in the slightest, but I do think they'll perform better in this London derby. Arsenal will look to capitalise on their winning ways with the hopes of other teams slipping up, and I think the visitors will prevail. I will go with West Ham 0-1 Arsenal.
