Arsenal vs West Ham: Team news & key stats

Following Arteta stripping Aubameyang of his captaincy and keeping him out of the Southampton win, the Gabonese striker isn't available for selection.

Alexandre Lacazette will continue to lead the attack while Emile Smith Rowe may see himself back for Arsenal after missing out on the last game.

West Ham has a long injury list as Ben Johnson, Kurt Zouma, Ryan Fredericks and Angelo Ogbonna remain sidelined, while Aaron Cresswell is expected to return.

Key Stats:

  • Arsenal have lost just one of their 22 Premier League games at the Emirates played on a Wednesday (W14 D7), going down 2-1 against Swansea in March 2016. Before this, they’d also won 12 of their last 14 Wednesday league games at Highbury (D1 L1), though that one defeat was against West Ham in February 2006.
  • Between January 29th, 2019 and July 8th, 2020, West Ham lost nine of their 11 midweek (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) Premier League games (W2). Since then, the Hammers are unbeaten in eight such games in the competition (W4 D4).

  • Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has scored five Premier League goals against West Ham, netting in each of his last three appearances against the Hammers. Against no side has he scored more in the competition (also five vs Southampton).

  • West Ham manager David Moyes has never won away against Arsenal in the Premier League in 17 attempts (D4 L13) – it’s the most a manager has played away at single club without ever winning in the competition.
  • West Ham’s Michail Antonio has been directly involved in 11 goals in his last 11 Premier League London derbies (5 goals, 6 assists). Only Carlton Cole (14) has scored more Premier League London derby goals for the Hammers than Antonio (11).
