West Ham vs Arsenal: Starting XIs for Carabao Cup clash confirmed

Arsenal have made six changes to the side which beat Sheffield United at the weekend, with the big news being Declan Rice’s selection among the substitutes on his return to West Ham.

Aaron Ramsdale is back in goal, with the chance to show his worth in place of David Raya – who is not involved at all – while Gabriel partners Jakub Kiwior in central defence with William Saliba dropping to the bench.

Jorginho deputises for Rice in central midfield, where Fabio Vieira takes Emile Smith Rowe’s spot from that win over Sheffield United. The Arsenal academy graduate isn’t in the squad tonight because of a knee issue.

Reiss Nelson, Arsenal’s match winner in the previous round at Brentford, is in for Bukayo Saka, while Leandro Trossard starts ahead of Gabriel Martinelli.

Hat-trick hero Eddie Nketiah continues through the middle.
