West Ham United vs Arsenal: Fantasy Preview, Probable XI and Players to watch out for

Match: West Ham United vs Arsenal
Venue: London Stadium
Date: January 12, 2019
Time: 18:00 IST
Dream11 Deadline: 16:30 IST

MATCH PREVIEW
West Ham will welcome Arsenal to the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon to begin the mouth watering London derby.

The Hammers shared the spoils with Brighton in their last league encounter. They currently sit at 10th in the points table due to their indifferent form. However, they have surely gained some confidence from their recent FA Cup victory over Birmingham and they would like to carry that forward into the league.

Arsenal have also shown the same kind of indifferent form of late, ever since their 22 game unbeaten run was broken by Southampton on December. However, they have returned back to form as their commanding victory over Fulham in their last league match and another assuring victory over Blackpool in FA Cup suggests. So, they would be quite hopeful of doing well in this match too.

INJURY AND SUSPENSION UPDATES

West Ham
Jack Wilshere (injured)
Manuel Lanzini (injured)

Arsenal

PREDICTED PLAYING XIs

West Ham (4-5-1): Fabianski; Zabaleta, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Obiang, Rice, Snodgrass, Anderson, Arnautovic; Carroll.

Arsenal (4-3-3): Leno; Mustafi, Sokratis, Koscielny; Bellerin, Monreal, Torriera, Guendouzi; Iwobi, Aubameyang, Lacazette

DREAM11 TEAM FORMATION
APPROACH: This is going to be a fascinating end to end contest. As both sides have a weak defence, multiple goals can be expected to. So, go light on defence depending upon the quality of defenders. Their is a lot of fantasy potential in the midfield and attacking lines of both teams. Try to include as many of them as possible. A 3-4-3 formation would work best.

MUST HAVE PICKS: Aubameyang, Lacazette and Bellerin are the must have players from Arsenal. From West Ham, Arnautovic, Anderson and Fabianski are the players you should bank on. Snodgrass is a good option too.
