The possible lineup for Arsenal as they prepare to face West Ham in the London Derby this evening at the Emirates Stadium
Arsenal is set to take on West Ham United this evening at the Emirates Stadium. The London Derby will be the Gunners first home game of the 2020/21 Premier League season and Mikel Arteta’s men would be hoping to secure all three points. The last fixture against Fulham at the Craven Cottage showed several positives as the north London side seemed like a cohesive unit.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future has been secured as well as the former Borussia Dortmund forward signed a contract extension to secure his future at the Emirates Stadium after being heavily linked with Barcelona. David Luiz has also recovered from a training injury he picked up on his neck and will most likely start today.
It is expected that Mikel Arteta will stick to his 3-4-3 formation.

The Brazilian will feel a lot more comfortable this evening against West Ham as the player would have his compatriot with him on the right flank. Tierney put in a solid display against Fulham and the Scottish player would hope to do the same as well. David Luiz will be hoping to start his campaign on a perfect note after missing the first fixture of the season.
