Arteta Dropped, Kallstrom Starts! – Arsenal Starting XI To Face West Ham.

Arsenal entertain West Ham at the Emirates tonight in a bid to return to the fourth position on the log.

below is my predicted starting XI…

Wojciech Szczesny will definiely return in goal for Arsenal against West Ham tonight after having rested in Arsenal FA Cup Semi-final victory against Wigan by Lukasz Fabianski.


Bacary Sagna: The Frenchman When fit is Wenger’s first choice any day and will equally be a sure bet for tonight clash against West Ham at the Emirates.

Kieran Gibbs: The Englishman missed our 3-0 defeat to Everton two week ago with an ankle injury but came on as a substitute for Nacho Monreal in our FA Cup victory last weekend. Following his recovery, it is expected that Gibbs will once again deputise in defence for Arsenal ahead of Monreal.

Per Mertesacker: The BFG is also another sure bet for tonights tie. He would be looking to put up another fine display again tonight at the Emirates after scoring the equalizer in last weekends FA Cup semi-final Clash against Wigan at Wembley

Thomas Vermaelen: The Arsenal Skipper is set to make yet another appearance, pairing with Mertesacker at the heart of the Arsenal defence. It is expected that the Captian should put a decent performance. Though Laurent Koscielny has returned from injury back to training but is unlikely to be used as Wenger would pick Captain Vermaelen ahead of him.


Mathiue Flamini: Follwing his suspension which lead to the Frenchman being dropped for the game against Wigan last weekend the player has had enough rest and is likely to return and will feature in the starting line-up against West Ham tonight.

Kim Kallstrom: Rumours are suggesting that the on-loan midfielder is set to make his first start for Arsenal tonight replacing Mikel Arteta who played all 120 minutes against Wigan last weekend.

Santiago Carzola: Carzola should yet again make another appearance for the gunners against West Ham tonight, and he is likely to have a good game with the return of Ramsey back into the Arsenal midfield set to raise his game as the two have in the past worked well together in the middle of the park a swell as going forward.

Aaron Ramsey: Rambo started our last game against Wigan and although he picked u a knock in the game but has soon brushed it aside and is back in training with the gunners and will feature in tonights game against West Ham.


Lukas Podolski: The German started the match against Wigan last weekend and is likely to be handed another start against West Ham tonight.

Giroud: The Frenchman was left on the bench last weekend and came on as a substitute. But is likely to start ahead of yaya Sanogo tonight
