Arsenal will face off against West Ham at the London Stadium this afternoon in the Premier League.
Arsenal have only lost this fixture once since 1999, but in the opposing half could be seeing a very familiar face that will boost the Hammers’ prospects.
Ex-Gunners star Samir Nasri looks set for his first Premier League appearance since August 2016 after joining West Ham at the end of December.
While Arsenal look set to be boosted by the return of Mesut Ozil, Laurent Kosciely and Hector Bellerin who are available after suffering injuries.
Speaking ahead of today’s game, Arsenal boss Unai Emery said: “I think West Ham are improving and they also have good individual players with quality, like Anderson, like Arnautovic, who are very good players.
“Usually [Manuel Pellegrini has] very offensive teams. They usually play matches with a balance tactically but above all with technical, offensive players.”
While West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini said: “This year we have demonstrated that we can play as a big team against any team. We play for three points from the first whistle, and we will do so again against Arsenal.
“I insist on the big team mentality because we are in a big club with 60,000 people behind us and we want to improve.
“As a team we want to work better than we did in the first half of the season and to do that we have to beat the top clubs.”
And in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports Nasri added: “I’m looking forward to it because it will hopefully be my first game back in the Premier League.
“I was in the squad against Brighton but I stayed on the bench so it would be nice.
“As well, in the past maybe we had some words with the Arsenal fans but like I said, there is nothing but love for the club because I spent three wonderful years there.
“Before I used to say things about Arsenal because I was hurt by the treatment from the fans but there is nothing but love for Arsenal.”
