After edging past Lincoln City in the third round, West Ham have been rewarded with a tough tie against an in-form Arsenal side. The Hammers started the season brightly but have lost their last three games, conceding seven goals in the process and scoring just twice. This could well lead to manager David Moyes selecting a strong side for Wednesday’s clash at the London Stadium. 

Jarrod Bowen and summer signing James Ward-Prowse have been the standout performers so far this season, while fellow new arrival Mohammed Kudus has shown glimpses of his quality and could well be in line to start against the Gunners. 

While West Ham have struggled of late, Arsenal have yet to suffer defeat in the league and are top of Group B in the Champions League. The Gunners secured a 1-0 win at Brentford in the third round of the Carabao Cup and manager Mikel Arteta will be keen for his side to battle for trophies in all competitions. 

The Spaniard did give opportunities to a few squad players against Brentford and may well choose to do the same against West Ham, though one player who will be desperate to appear is former Hammer Declan Rice who has been in superb form since making the move to the Emirates.


West Ham XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Mavropanos, Aguerd, Emerson; Alvarez, Soucek; Kudus, Paqueta, Benrahma; Bowen

Subs: Areola, Cresswell, Ward-Prowse, Fornals, Antonio, Cornet, Ings, Ogbonna, Kehrer

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale; White, Kiwior, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Jorginho, Havertz, Vieira; Nelson, Trossard, Nketiah

Subs: Hein, Cedric, Tomiyasu, Saliba, Rice, Elneny, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli
