West Ham United have had a tough start to the Premier League season as they have lost to Liverpool and Bournemouth.
This weekend it gets more difficult as the East London outfit are due to take on Arsenal at the Emirates.
Given the past two results, this fixture has added weight around it, but for Jack Wilshere, this game has an even deeper significance.
It will be the first time that the midfielder has played against the Gunners since leaving them in the summer.
The 26-year-old opted to walk away from his boyhood club when his contract expired, despite being offered an extension.
Wilshere explained that he would have had limited game time under Unai Emery, which is why he called time on his Arsenal career.

In the end, the England international, who has 34 caps to his name, joined West Ham on a free transfer.
The midfielder is likely to start against his former club, but some supporters are not feeling optimistic that he will score or make an impact at the Emirates.
Wilshere is yet to set the midfield alight since signing for the Hammers.
