Former GunnerSamir Nasriis starting against his former club and makes his league debut for the Hammers.
The 31-year-oldsigned for Manuel Pellegrini’s sideon New Year’s Eve after serving a doping ban.
He played his first match in more than a year when he started in their FA Cup victory over Birmingham last weekend.
Pellegrini said he is on a “revenge” mission after his ban, which is ominous for his old club.
The Frenchman spent three seasons with Arsenal before joining Premier League rivalsManchester Cityfor £25million in 2011.
He is not the only ex-Arsenal man in the West Ham team with Lukasz Fabianski also in the starting XI.
Gunners fans are already fearing the worst when their former player takes their field against them on Saturday.
Many on Twitter are making the prediction he will score against his old club.
Pretty sure that Nasri is destined to get a goal against us today. But we should beat them even without Ozil. Have captained Aubameyang in my fantasy football team so am hoping he delivers.
