Arsenal manager Unai Emery began the season with two back-to-back defeats but he would be hoping to get back on track against West Ham on Saturday.
The Gunners were defeated by Chelsea and Manchester City— both clubs ended last season ahead of Emery’s side — he would want to prove his doubters wrong when his side tackles the Hammers at the Bet365 Stadium.
The former PSG boss is expected to remain glue to his 4-2-3-1 formation which he deployed against the Blues last Saturday.
Though the manager might maintain the same formation, he is set to make some changes to his starting lineup against the Hammers.

Granit Xhaka, who was hauled out of Chelsea’s game in the second half, was very poor for the Gunners last week, so he is expected to make way for Lucas Torreira in Emery’s first eleven.
The Uruguayan is set for his full debut after impressing the manager with his display against the Blues.
Cech, Aubameyang, Lichtsteiner, Mkhitaryan, Guendouzi, Ozil, Monreal, Bellerin, Sokratis are all set for a place in the manager’s lineup.
After his excellent display, Nigerian international Alex Iwobi is set to be given another opportunity to start the game from the blast of the referee’s whistle.
It means want-away midfielder Aaron Ramsey will need to watch proceedings from the substitute bench.
Lacazzette could also get a look-in from Emery in the starting lineup but that looks very unlikely base on numbers of the strikers in the team
