West Ham tonight host Arsenal in a bid to reach the Carabao Cup quarter finals, with David Moyes hunting a much needed win.

Our Hammers have suffered 3 consecutive defeats at the hands of Aston Villa, Olympiakos and Everton, with the Gunners next set to prove a stern test for the Irons boss.

Many are hoping that Moyes will look to field a strong side to face our London rivals, with morale boosting victory very much required in east London.

The manager has already eluded that Paqueta and Alvarez are likely to feature, with both suspended for this weekends trip to Brentford.

Both Fabianski and Mavropanos are also expected to play against their former club tonight, although it is understood a few knocks were picked up for others in the defeat on Sunday.

One key ingredient tonight is the return of former captain Declan Rice, who departed the club to join Arsenal in the summer for £105m.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has already stated that is it likely Rice will play a role in tonight’s game, his first at London Stadium since his summer exit.

Tonight’s game kicks off at 7:30pm and is being shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Ultra HDR.
