Arsenal are ready to face West Ham United in the English Premier League at the London Stadium on Monday night, with the visitors desperate for a positive result.

The Gunners are coming into the match low on confidence after not being able to win a single match out of last eight in all competitions.

Arsenal caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg is already under pressure as the North London-based club suffered a demoralising 2-1 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion on Thursday night.

As per BBC Sport, Gunners right-back Hector Bellerin’s fitness will be monitored before making a call regarding his potential inclusion in the starting XI as he just recently returned from a lengthy injury layoff.

However, Arsenal centre-back Rob Holding and on-loan midfielder Dani Ceballos are certain to miss the game as they continue to recover from their respective injuries.

The London clubs have faced each other in 36 matches in the Premier League era where Arsenal clearly have an edge with 23 wins compared to West Ham who, have managed to register just six victories whereas seven matches ended as a draw.

In the last eight matches between the sides, the Gunners have shown their supremacy with wins on five occasions, whereas the Hammers have managed to register just a single victory.
