Arsenal interim manager, Freddie Ljungberg, is hoping to win his first game as manager in the upcoming match against West Ham on Monday.

The former Gunners player saw his side defeated 2-1 at home by Brighton on Thursday December 5. Arsenal hasn’t won a match since October 6.

Ljungberg is expected to make some changes in his starting XI ahead of clash against West Ham.

According to Mirror, Bernd Leno will start in goal after a string of impressive performances.

The online sports publication also said that Arsenal is monitoring Hector Bellerin’s fitness after he returned to the squad against Brighton and he is expected to continue to play defence with David Luiz and Sokratis.

Kieran Tierney might replace Sead Kolasinac after coming off the bench on Thursday.

In the midfield, Dani Ceballos will be left out since he is still dealing with the hamstring injury he sustained during Europa League clash with Vitoria last month.

But Granit Xhaka will start alongside Matteo Guendouzi who will come in for either Lucas Torreira or Mesut Ozil.

For the attacking position, Nicolas Pepe is set to replace Joe Willock. The 24-years-old summer record signing will play alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.


Arsenal predicted XI (4-3-3): Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Sokratis, Tierney; Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreira; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
