The Gunners began their 2020-21 campaign on a winning note having silenced Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage, and they would be hoping to make it two wins out of two against David Moyes’ men.
Saka was an unused substitute against the Cottagers the last time out, however, he has been given the nod to start ahead of Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Regular suspect Aubameyang will lead Arsenal’s frontline at the Emirates Stadium, and he would be hoping to continue his impressive goalscoring run.
Despite giving a good account of himself in the opening day, Egypt’s Mohamed Elneny will start from the bench alongside Anglo-Ghanaian Edward Nketiah and Cote d’Ivoire international Nicolas Pepe.

West Ham stuttered against Newcastle United losing 2-0 at home, Moyes and his squad would be drawing inspiration from midweek’s 3-0 triumph over Charlton Athletic to get a positive result away from home.
