Built on land bought from the owners of Green Street House, which was known locally as Boleyn Castle. It may or may not have been owned by the family of Anne Boleyn, but it is said that the ground is haunted by the ghost of one of Anne’s maids who died there in childbirth.
Today’s game is going to be no walk over, The Hammers are fighting for a top four finish and we know that Slaven Bilic will have them up for the match.
An odd decision, earlier this week by an FA disciplinary hearing, saw the red card shown to Cheikkhou Kouyate rescinded so their midfield dynamo is clear to play.
Everybody knows what Arsenal need from this game, three points and preferably a clean sheet.
Arsène Wenger has suggested that the team will be largely unchanged from the one that beat Watford last week, that said, if Petr Cech is fully fit he should play in place of Davis Ospina. So my suggested line-up is:-
I think this is our strongest team at the moment, with the exception of Cech they have played together for the last two games and have won both. They are developing an understanding, are showing confidence in each other and are close to their top form.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
