Interim Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg has not started well in his new role following the dismissal of Unai Emery at the end of last month.
Club legend Freddie Ljungberg was named the temporary manager at Arsenal in the wake of the sacking of Spanish tactician Unai Emery for poor results and he has recorded a solitary point from his two games in charge of the team ahead of the Hammers game.
That solitary point came in his managerial bow against Norwich City last weekend as the Gunners were only able to secure a 2-2 draw away from home against the league newcomers.
The Norwich City game was followed by the disappointing loss at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Gunners were beaten 2-1 by the Seagulls courtesy the late goal from French striker Neal Maupay.
Record signing Nicholas Pepe has started the two games under Freddie Ljungberg from the bench but he made a very good cameo during the second half of the Brighton game and that has almost certainly earned him a place in the Arsenal XI For the away game at West Ham United.
Starting Arsenal XI: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, David Luiz, Kieran Tierney; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka; Mesut Ozil, Nicholas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; Alexandre Lacazette.
