Optimistic hammers expect something from Arsenal

Over sixty-three per cent of West Ham supporters expect a win or draw tomorrow against Arsenal at the London Stadium.

In a Claret and Hugh poll voted for by over 1,350 supporters,  believe West Ham will win, 32.87% (445) expect a draw while 36.63% (496) expect to lose to Arsenal tomorrow lunchtime.

Manuel Pellegrini told reporters in the pre-match press conference that there were no updates on the injury front from last week meaning Javier Hernandez and Ryan Fredericks are not ready to play again just yet. Fabian Balbuena underwent a minor operation on his knee and will be out for another eight weeks.

There will leave Pellegrini playing a similar squad to the one that faced Brighton second half with hints that speculation about Arnautovic would affect his preparation for Arsenal and another hint that Samri Nasri is ready to make his Premier League debut for West Ham this weekend.

Likely Team: Fabianski, Zabaleta, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Nasri, Noble, Rice, Anderson, Antonio and Arnautovic
