‘Exciting’ summer signing to start? Predicted Arsenal XI vs West Ham

first_imgUnai Emery will be looking to secure his first ever Premier League victory on Saturday afternoon when West Ham visit the Emirates.Neither Arsenal nor their upcoming opponents have picked up a single point so far this season, with the Gunners losing their opening two games of the campaign to Manchester City and Chelsea; West Ham have been defeated by Liverpool and Bournemouth. The rest of the starting XI is likely to remain unchanged from the one which was selected against Chelsea, with Emery expected to keep faith in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the forward, despite his failures in front of goal against the Blues. 4 The biggest question for Emery when it comes to picking his team for the fixture concerns Granit Xhaka, who has struggled as a starter in both of Arsenal’s matches this term.There was serious hype about Lucas Torreira, the midfielder, when he was confirmed as an Arsenal player in the summer, with fans branding him ‘exciting’, ‘fantastic’, and ‘our [N’Golo] Kante and our [Santi] Cazorla’.He was brought on in the losses to Man City and Chelsea to work his way up to full fitness, and there is a good chance Torreira will make his first start for the Gunners against West Ham.
