Trying to second guess Arsene Wenger’s team selection this season has been a pain in the arse.

Just when you think you’ve cracked it, he does something like drop our top striker to bring in Danny Welbeck who only goes and scores the winner.

So ahead of West ham, let’s start with what we know.

Regardless of your opinion on him, David Ospina will come back into the side.

In front of him we will certainly have Hector Bellerin, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.

In front of them will be Francis Coquelin.

Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will all start because they always do.


So what of the other positions?

Does Wenger bring Kieran Gibbs back in to rest the excellent Nacho Monreal who is only just returning from a back strain?


What about Welbeck, does he keep his starting spot? Does Aaron Ramsey get the nod now that he’s fit?

Will Theo Walcott finally get a start?

Who. The. Hell. Knows.

Here’s our best guess:
