ARSENAL boss Arsene Wenger has revealed the club will be without two players for their clash with West Ham tomorrow night.

Arsenal go into the game against West Ham aiming to bounce back after recent blips against Southampton and Manchester United.

And, speaking ahead of the match, Wenger has confirmed Shkodran Mustafi and Aaron Ramsey are sidelined for the game at the London Stadium.

“Mustafi will not be back,” the Arsenal boss said.

“We lost Ramsey against Southampton. He will not be available for tomorrow’s game.

“Everybody else apart from the long-term injuries will be available.”

Wenger did, however, admit Mustafi may be back in time for the weekend’s game against Newcastle.

He is out training, running,” the Frenchman added.

“The medical staff say he is not ready. Will he be ready for Newcastle? Maybe, yes.”

West Ham will go into the game on a high after their 1-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend.

The victory served to lift some of the doom and gloom mood that has derailed their campaign so far.

And Wenger also praised David Moyes for getting a first win of his Hammers career.

“They had a good manager before with Bilic who did an excellent job but it depends on confidence and injury,” he said.

“I am not surprised [about Moyes].

“He has a big experience in the Premier League.”
