West Ham v Arsenal preview

The duo were rotated out of the starting XI for Friday’s loss at Chelsea, with Mark Noble and Enner Valencia replacing them.

James Tomkins (hamstring) is likely to miss out again, with James Collins continuing in central defence.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud begins a three-match suspension so misses Sunday’s Barclays Premier League trip to West Ham.

Giroud was sent off for head-butting in the 2-1 victory over QPR and sits out the Upton Park showdown, but Laurent Koscielny could be back from a hamstring problem.

Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Mikel Arteta (calf), Mesut Ozil (knee), Abou Diaby (calf), Jack Wilshere (ankle) and Serge Gnabry (knee) are sidelined.
