The closest station is Arsenal, on the Piccadilly line, which is just a three-minute walk from the Emirates Stadium. Finsbury Park, which is also on the Piccadilly and Victoria lines, as well as Great Northern Rail, is also only a ten-minute walk and is usually less congested on matchdays.

As reported earlier on Claret and Hugh the Hammers are likely to be without Nayef Aguerd who has had a bad bout of flu and Michail Antonio.
