Arsenal vs West Ham United: Team news and probable line-ups

Laurent Koscielny will not be making an appearance for Arsenal in tomorrow’s Premier League clash with London rivals West Ham.

The defender was forced off the pitch at half-time during the 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday due to an Achilles injury and the France is awaiting further examination to determine how long the injury will keep him out.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech (calf) and Lucas Perez (thigh) will also absent while Santi Cazorla (Achilles) will not be playing again this season, although both Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could recover in time to be involved in the game.

Provisional squad: Ospina, Martinez, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Mertesacker, Mustafi, Monreal, Gibbs, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud, Welbeck.

Antonio will be taking up some role in the game at the Emirates, although it is still uncertain if he will be part of the starting XI.

Aaron Cresswell is unfit to play as he is nursing a thigh injury but Diafra Sakho could be coming on as a substitute for the first time since he went on an injury enforced leave in November

Provisional squad: Adrian, Randolph, Byram, Fonte, Collins, Sakho, Masuaku, Arbeloa, Kouyate, Noble, Fernandes, Nordtveit, Snodgrass, Feghouli, Lanzini, Carroll, Fletcher, Calleri, Antonio.
