Giroud and Wilshere start against West Ham

They have been particularly poor on the road, where they've picked up just nine points points from nine matches, the second-worst run at this stage of the season in the club's Premier League history.

England global Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, has seemingly overcome a torrid run of injuries.

But Moyes would not be drawn into any discussion about having a particular preference, adding: "I've got two goalkeepers who can be chosen at any time".

And he thoroughly impressed as he helped the Gunners keep a clean sheet as they drew 0-0 at the London Stadium. That's the next step for me - to get into this Premier League team and try to stay in this team.

"There's another game on Saturday, we'll see what the boss does then".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger declined to answer questions regarding the title race after seeing his side slip further off the pace after a 0-0 draw with West Ham.

"Defensively we didn't see him too much today because they dominated the game for long periods but he didn't look uncomfortable".

David Moyes led the Hammers to a 1-0 win over champions Chelsea at the weekend before frustrating Arsenal four days later.

"When I saw the fixtures when I took the job I thought "oh no", Moyes said.

"I think the other games will give us the opportunity to go onto the front foot, rather than always sitting back in".

"Everybody wants to show what they can do". "If it had been reversed - we play Saturday and West Ham play Sunday - maybe we could have found a little advantage". "We needed to change attitudes and the way we approach games is much better than before". A year ago we got done here by the so-called bigger teams by three or four so to keep two clean sheets [and get] four points is a great reward.
