Arsenal will reportedly listen to offers for midfielder Francis Coquelin in January with fellow Premier League side West Ham interested in signing the player who has fallen down the pecking order with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny all preferred to the Frenchman.

Arsenal’s last Premier League match ended in a 2-2 draw with Chelsea in what was one of the games of the season. There was no shortage of goals, big challenges and controversy, as the sides played out a superb advert for the Premier League.

On Tuesday night, Arsenal progressed to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup with a comfortable 1-0 win over West Ham, courtesy of a Danny Welbeck goal. The game was a slight non-event, as there was very little to talk about from an injury to Olivier Giroud and a chance of officials.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also stuck to his rotation policy, which to be fair to the Frenchman has served him well this season. Weakened sides have helped the Gunners to qualify from their Europa League group, while also taking the north London side to the last four of the EFL Cup.

Arsenal recorded a 1-0 win over West Ham in the EFL Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night, with a Danny Welbeck goal enough to send the Gunners into the last four of the competition.

The opening period of the game was very lacklustre, as Arsenal passed the ball around, but to no avail. By the quarter of the hour mark, the Gunners had enjoyed 65 percent possession.

The first real threat on either goal did not come until 38 minutes. Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac cut in from the left and aimed for the far corner of the net, but the wing-back’s effort is well off target.

Arsenal have the chance to book their place in the last-four of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night when the Gunners welcome West Ham to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal’s recent form has been inconsistent in the Premier League. However, the Gunners head into this clash on the back of a 1-0 home win over Newcastle last time out.

The north London side have had a relatively easy route to the quarter-finals, with wins over lower league opposition Doncaster Rovers and Norwich City, although they need extra time to beat the latter in round 5.

The Arsenal players like to make life interesting for their supporters. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium was a good example of that theory.

Arsenal looked in complete control in the first half and Newcastle barely threatened the Gunners goal. However, Arsenal failed to score a killer second goal.

As it is near the season of giving, the Arsenal defence decided to give the visitors some great opportunities to something from this game. Fortunately, for the Gunners, Newcastle could not find the net with a SAT NAV at the minute.

Arsenal struggled to make an impact on the West Ham goal in Wednesday night’s goalless draw. One of the few positives of the Gunners display was a decent display from central midfielder Jack Wilshere.

The England international was making his first Premier League start of the campaign after making all his starts this season in the League Cup and Europa League. It was, in fact, Wilshere’s first league appearance for Arsenal since May 2016 due to a loan spell at Bournemouth last season.

West Ham newly-appointed manager David Moyes is looking to further strengthen the Hammers squad during the January transfer window in order to boost his survival chances.

Having invested a good load of money on new signings during summer and despite boosting the squad by the likes of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic, West Ham have endured a difficult start to new Premier League season.

The club hierarchy decided to part ways with Slaven Bilic and appoint former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager David Moyes, who managed to tighten up his side and make Hammers a more organized defensively.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel the short distance to West Ham’s London Stadium for a midweek Premier League clash.

The home side will be heading into the clash in good spirits, following a 1-0 home win against reigning champions Chelsea last time out. The win means the Irons moved up to 18th place in the table.

David Moyes’ side are now only in the relegation zone on goal difference. With 17th place West Brom facing a difficult game at Liverpool, anything from this match would move the Hammers out of the drop zone.

David Moyes is slowly making his stamp at West Ham with Hammers looking tougher and tighter at the back in their last couple of matches.

A tense tussle is expected between the two London rivals with Arsenal under pressure to get back up on their feet following a frustrating 1-1 stalemate at Southampton.
