Arsenal kick-off the 2015-16 Premier League season against West Ham in the north-east London derby at the Emirates stadium today.

Gunners star Mesut Özil is expected to start against the Hammers but fellow midfielders Jack Wilshere, Flamini and Rosicky are out injured. Striker Danny Welbeck is also unlikely to feature in the match.

The derby also marks West Ham boss Slaven Bilic’s Premier League debut as a manager.

The former Beşiktaş head coach held Arsenal to a goalless draw in Istanbul before narrowly losing out 1-0 at the Emirates in the Champions League play-off stages.

However, West Ham have lost their last 10 head to head games against the north London based club.

Cech; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey; Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott
