The Frenchman demanded treatment towards the end of the contest but is unlikely to be rested given away Moyes’s lack of options in that area, and Dawson’s suspense could see Ben Johnson move next to Zouma as Vladimir Coufal returns at right- reverse.
Nikola Vlasic and Andriy Yarmolenko should also be considered for starting places as Moyes prioritises the alternate leg in Frankfurt, whileex-Gunner Lukasz Fabianski will replace Alphonse Areola in thing.
As for the Gunners, Arteta is reportedly awaiting Bukayo Saka to be fit and well for the London derby, with the 20- time-old back in exercise alongside his teammates after being taken off against Man United.
Saka’s return would leave Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey as the Gunners’ only two absentees, with Takehiro Tomiyasu coming back as a late cover against the Red Devils, but Arteta may be reticent to throw him back in from the launch just yet.
Mohamed Elneny has filled in admirably alongside Granit Xhaka and should start again then, and Arteta may also conclude to use Gabriel Martinelli’s pace and honesty against a jelly- legal West Ham defence.
