Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with West Ham United.

Arsenal will be looking to build upon their FA Cup fifth-round victory over Portsmouth as they welcome West Ham United to the Emirates on Saturday in the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta's side will have to prioritise the league should they have any hope of qualifying for next season's Champions League following a dismal defeat to Olympiacos in the Europa League round of 32, and the North London outfit currently sit 10th in the table.

However, the Gunners have chalked up back-to-back league victories against Everton and Newcastle United at the Emirates in recent weeks, and are only five points behind fifth-placed Manchester United with a game in hand.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the London derby.
