Arsenal vs. West Ham: Lineups

Standard fare lineup for Arsene Wenger with a couple changes from their 2-1 loss to Chelsea over the weekend. Abou Diaby and Francis Coquelin drop out of the squad as Aaron Ramsey and Lukas Podolski return.

Sam Allardyce has moved Mohamed Diamé to the bench as rumors fly about his frustrations with West Ham trying to prevent teams from triggering his release clause swirl. We don't know if that's the reason, or if he's getting a rest, but either way he's not in the starting eleven. Jack Collison takes his place in the midfield alongside Mark Noble. Carlton Cole gets the start up front as on-loan Marouane Chamakh is ineligible for this match as he can't play against his parent club.

Arsenal starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Wojciech Szczęsny; Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs; Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere; Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski; Olivier Giroud.

West Ham United starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Jussi Jaaskelainen; Guy Demel, Joey O'Brien, WInston Reid, James Tomkins; Mark Noble, Jack Collison; Matthew Taylor, Kevin Nolan, Ricardo Vaz Te; Carlton Cole.
