The Gunners and Hammers are putting some London derby bragging rights on the line this evening at the Emirates Stadium (Watch live on NBCSN and online at 2:45pm ET Tuesday via NBC Sports Live Extra).
There’s more than bragging rights at play for Arsenal, which needs a win to temporarily leapfrog Everton for the No.4 slot in the Premier League standings.
Kim Kallstrom makes the start for Arsenal as part of a midfield that will look to provide Olivier Giroud and somewhat-disgruntled Lukas Podolski with chances. For West Ham, Andy Caroll and Antonio Nocerino will look to provide some offensive punch.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Arteta, Rosicky, Kallstrom, Cazorla, Podolski, Giroud
Subs: Fabianski, Bellerin, Jenkinson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Sanogo, Akpom
West Ham: Adrian, Reid, Tomkins, Jarvis, Armero, Demel, Noble, Downing, Diame, Nocerino, Carroll
Subs: Jaaskelainen, Johnson, C. Cole, J. Cole, Vaz Te, McCartney, Taylor
