Arnautovic and Nasri start for West Ham as Arsenal deploy two strikers

Unai Emery has started with both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) as Arsenal face West Ham at the London Stadium today.

They will go up against former Gunner Samir Nasri (£5.5m), whose first Premier League start has pushed Robert Snodgrass (£5.4m) to the West Ham bench.

Meanwhile, Marko Arnautovic (£6.9m) has come through his most recent injury doubt to lead the line for the Hammers.

Mesut Özil (£8.0m) is absent from the matchday squad entirely, reportedlty a tactical decision, while Lucas Torreira (£5.0m) is benched for Matteo Guendouzi (£4.4m) to start in central midfield.

Alex Iwobi (£5.4m) has been handed the right attacking midfield berth, in front of Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.4m) who occupies the right wing-back position today.

Issa Diop (£4.3m) and Angelo Ogbonna (£4.2m) pair up at centre-back with Fabian Balbuena (£4.3m) ruled out.

West Ham XI: Fabianski; Cresswell, Diop, Ogbonna, Zabaleta; Rice, Noble, Nasri; Anderson, Arnautovic, Antonio.

Arsenal XI: Leno; Koscielny, Sokratis, Mustafi; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Kolasinac; Iwobi, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
