Moyes makes one change for tonight’s game

Angelo Ogbonna has been included in the Hammers starting line up alongside Mavropanos for tonight’s visit to Arsenal as David Moyes makes one change for tonight’s game.

Oggy comes in for Kurt Zouma and indeed is wearing the captain’s armband.

Alphonse Areola starts in goal, with Vladimír Coufal and Emerson joining the the central defenders at the back. Nayef Aguerd – as predicted by Claret and Hugh – also misses the game.

Edson Álvarez will sit at the base of a midfield which is also set to feature Tomáš Souček and James Ward-Prowse.

Lucas Paquetá will support Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen in attack, with the pair hoping to add to the goals they notched in our 3-1 win against the Gunners in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

Among the substitutes, another former Arsenal man Łukasz Fabiański, provides back-up for Areola, with Ben Johnson, Aaron Cresswell and Thilo Kehrer providing further defensive cover.

Pablo Fornals, Saïd Benrahma, Maxwel Cornet, Danny Ings and Divin Mubama comprise Moyes’ attacking options from the bench.
