Arsenal vs West Ham

Can West Ham achieve the double over the Gunners, and repeat last year's away win over Arsenal? The Gooners have lost their last two Premiership games, however they remain unbeaten at the Emirates, West Ham have not travelled well this season and Arsenal will not have Sol Campbell in defence.

Arsenal will not want to lose a third Premiership game in a row but if West Ham can get something from this game it will set them up for the 'six-pointer' away to Sheffield United next Saturday.

Since Noble has been in the West Ham starting line-up their fortunes have changed so the choice between Noble and Quashie should be a no-brainer. However Etherington's place may be threatened by a now fit Boa-Morte.

West Ham look like being without defender Matthew Upson for most of the rest of the season after he aggravated a calf injury in training. Therefore the centre back pairing of Collins and Ferdinand should remain unchanged.

Emmanuel Eboue has picked up a groin strain that may keep him out of the Arsenal side but Gilberto will be back to captain their side after missing their game against Liverpool.
