Plenty of Arsenal fans have been taking to Twitter today to discuss who they want to see as their double pivot going into the fixture against West Ham at The Emirates. The club have lost their two opening games against Manchester City and Chelsea and if the fans get their way and see a Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira double pivot.

It’s no secret that Unai Emery likes a 4-2-3-1 formation but he isn’t afraid to switch between other systems for different games. However, most fans are of the belief that their game against The Hammers on Saturday should be plain sailing. Both sides go into the game on zero points having lost their two openers and Emery will be hoping he can finally win his first points of the season.
Unai Emery is yet to give Torreira a role from the start and if he does start the Uruguayan alongside young Guenzoudi then there will be some very happy Gunners. It will also be interesting to see how they fare against West Ham considering that ex-Arsenal man Jack Wilshere could be set to start against them at The Emirates in his first game against Arsenal since leaving the club this summer.

The fans are all keen to see their double pivot made up of their two new midfielders and they won’t be pleased to see the likes of Granit Xhaka start against West Ham.
