West Ham United host Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground in the London derby , kick-off is at 12:45 (GMT)

The North London based side are currently 11 points behind league leaders Leicester City but have a game in hand and are still mathematically in the race.

The Hammers meanwhile have ambitions of their own. Slaven Bilic’s side could still qualify for the Champions League but much like their London rivals they cannot afford to drop any more points.

Mesut Ozil has kept his place in the starting line-up and will be the main danger man having provided 19 assists and setup an astonishing 119 chances.

On-loan Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike is available but is not expected to start for the Hammers tomorrow.

West Ham beat Arsenal last time around but have not done the double over the Gunners since 2006-07.
