Wholesale Changes for Hammers Highlight Chaos of New Squad
Manuel Pellegrini has made a host of changes to his squad for the trip to Arsenal with Antonio, Fredericks and Rice (bench) all back in the frame. Diop gets a first start in CB alongside Balbuena, while Carlos Sanchez will try to add some beef to midfield.
Pellegrini has plenty of options on the bench with Hernandez, Yarmolenko and Perez all looking for a chance to impress. Arnie is captain for the day, replacing the 'injured' Mark Noble.
All in all its like musical chairs just now.
West Ham XI: Fabianski, Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku, Sanchez, Wilshire, Antonio, Snodgrass, Anderson, Arnautovic.
Substitutes: Zabaleta, Adrian, Obiang, Hernandez, Yarmolenko, Lucas Perez, Rice.
