Team news, stats and prediction ahead of West Ham vs Arsenal in the Premier League, live on Monday Night Football.
Michail Antonio faces a late fitness test ahead of West Ham's home game against Arsenal on Monday Night Football. The forward missed out at Wolves in midweek with a slight groin problem.
Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could also be involved after a groin problem but Lukasz Fabianski (torn hip muscle) and Manuel Lanzini (fractured collarbone) are still sidelined.
Dani Ceballos is the only confirmed absentee for Arsenal as they seek a first win in nine games. The Spain midfielder is still missing with a hamstring issue, which is expected to keep him sidelined for at least another week.
Rob Holding has not featured in the last three games as he is eased back to full fitness following a slight knee problem but could be in contention to return.

- West Ham won this exact fixture 1-0 last season, ending a run of 10 home league games without a win against Arsenal (D3 L7). They've not won back-to-back home league games against the Gunners since October 1984.
- Against no side have Arsenal won more away games in the Premier League than they have against West Ham (12 - level with Everton and Aston Villa).
- Arsenal have only won two of their last 12 away London derbies in the Premier League (D4 L6), winning 3-2 at Crystal Palace in December 2017 and 5-1 at Fulham in October 2018.
- No side has lost more Premier League games on a Monday than West Ham (29), while only Man Utd (43) have won more Monday games in the competition than Arsenal (39).
- West Ham have lost their last two Premier League home games - they last lost three in a row at home between May and August 2015, while they last suffered three consecutive home defeats in the same season in October 2013.
- Arsenal have won just one of their last 11 away Premier League matches in December (W1 D6 L4), beating Crystal Palace in December 2017. They are winless in six since then (D4 L2).
- West Ham have picked up fewer points across their last eight Premier League matches (4 - W1 D1 L6) than any other Premier League side.
- Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been involved in 10 goals in his last 10 Premier League London derbies (8 goals, 2 assists). However, he's yet to score in three appearances versus West Ham - against no side has he played more games without netting in the competition.
- West Ham United's Felipe Anderson hasn't scored or assisted a single goal in his last eight Premier League appearances (553 minutes on the pitch in those 8 apps); his longest run at the club in the competition without a goal involvement.
Charlie Nicholas' prediction
These are two teams in a right mess. I saw more fight from Arsenal at Norwich, but it was a disaster defensively and a crazy team selection from Freddie Ljungberg. West Ham will be up for it, as will Arsenal - they have a chance of catching up and getting back in the top six. A bit of momentum can get you there. They have class up top, but West Ham are not showing a lot at the moment.
