Bukayo Saka and Dani Ceballos return to the starting lineup while David Luiz misses out as Arsenal prepare to host West Ham United at the Emirates.
Mikel Arteta has made two changes to the side that started in the opening day win over Fulham last weekend as Arsenal get set to play hosts to West Ham United at the Emirates. There are no shuffles in goal, where Bernd Leno retains his spot.
The three-man central defensive unit remains unchanged as well, with David Luiz not fit enough to start. In the absence of Luiz, Gabriel Magalhaes, making his home debut for Arsenal, will be stationed in the middle of the back-three, with Kieran Tierney and Rob Holding providing him company.
🚨 Two changes from last weekend…

The only two changes come in midfield, with Dani Ceballos and Bukayo Saka back in the side. Saka replaces Ainsley Maitland-Niles in the left wing-back slot, while Hector Bellerin starts on the right flank once again. The other alteration sees Ceballos come in for Mohamed Elneny to resume his solid partnership with Granit Xhaka.
Finally, in attack, last weekend’s trifecta continues. Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Willian, who, like Gabriel makes his Emirates bow, are the two wide men while Alexandre Lacazette leads the line against West Ham.
