West Ham are set to be without Diafra Sakho after the forward picked up a hamstring injury that could sideline him for another four weeks.
This could, possibly, be offset by the return of Andy Carroll who might make a return to the West Ham side this week for their EFL Cup game on Wednesday night against Manchester United.
Arsenal haven’t conceded a header in a while so it stands to reason that he will be fit for the weekend.
SB: "We're going to see today whether @AndyTCarroll is ready, we will make a decision after training. Maybe tomorrow, definitely Saturday."

It’s worth noting that Sakho is due to undergo a scan on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury so any timescale at this point is merely speculation. As Wenger explained regarding Mathieu Debuchy’s hamstring injury, around 48 hours is needed after an injury like this before an MRI scan can deliver any definitive news.
He picked up the injury against Manchester United on Sunday after only returning from a back injury that had kept him for the entire season up until the start of the month.
Arsenal travel to the London Stadium this weekend hoping to extend their unbeaten run to 20 games.
