Here is Arsene Wenger's starting eleven: Martinez, Gibbs, Gabriel, Holding, Jenkinson, Elneny, Maitland-Niles, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Lucas Tue, Oct 25, 2016 03:07:00 PM

Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson will return to action after two seasons away on loan and a significant injury.

It has been a long while since Carl Jenkinson suited up for the Arsenal first team in a meaningful match but that seems likely to happen on Tuesday against Reading. The timing is good with Arsenal having found their first team answer at right back in rising star Hector Bellerin but the Gunners are thin at the position with Mathieu Debuchy having dropped off significantly since moving to the Emirates from Newcastle two seasons ago. Look for Jenkinson to move into the reserve right back role for league matches and start in cup matches in the earlier stages.

Carl Jenkinson will make his long awaited return for Arsenal when the full-back lines up against Southampton in a Premier League 2 match at Meadow Park.

Jenkinson ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament back in January while on-loan at West Ham and has spent the last nine months working his way back to full fitness following surgery on his left knee. Arsène Wenger has "been impressed" with his "fantastic mentality" and expects Jenkinson to be pushing for a place in the first team by November although Hector Bellerin will take some shifting. The 21-year-old has established himself at right-back and the Gunners boss was quick to quash rumours this week linking Bellerin with a move to Barcelona. "I'm surprised by the speculation, he has nearly three years to go and for me his long-term future is here," said Wenger. "He has been absolutely fantastic. He has responsibilities in the dressing room at such a young age. In life you do not have to play where you were born."

West Ham have been dealt a devastating blow with the news that Carl Jenkinson will miss the remainder of the campaign due to a serious knee injury.

Jenkinson pulled up in immediate pain following a challenge on Sergio Aguero last weekend. The tackle resulted in the Argentine equalising from the penalty spot during a frantic opening ten minutes at the Boleyn Ground. Initially, the defender had hoped to continue, but, it soon became evident that his game was over although Jenkinson still managed to jog across the pitch to be replaced by new signing Sam Byram. It now looks like 23-year-old is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after a tests revealed damage to his anterior cruciate ligament. Jenkinson will seek a second opinion, but is expected to undergo surgery later this week. That would effectively end his current loan deal at West Ham and Jenkinson will return to Arsenal for the duration of his rehab.

Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson scored the Hammers' opener but gave up a penalty three minutes later on the way to a 3-1 West Ham win.

It was a match with a lot of talking points. Carl Jenkinson opened the scoring with a goal on a beautiful through ball from Victor Moses. Jenkinson then gave up a penalty that Yohan Cabaye converted to make it 1-1. Dwight Gayle was sent off just before halftime. Just when it looked like it would end a draw Lanzini and Payet scored rapid fire goals at the death for a 3-1 West Ham victory that will see the Hammers end the week no lower than 4th and at least temporarily third pending Arsenal's result at Watford.

Carl Jenkinson partially made up for his extremely poor start to the season with a goal last weekend.

Jenkinson has been really poor this season but scored a nice goal off a Victor Moses set-up on Saturday and is trending up at the moment. Jenkinson has fantasy value as he likes to get involved in the attack with crosses and the occasional assists, so if he continues starting for West Ham, he can be used in a variety of formats.

Carl Jenkinson became the fifth West Ham player to receive his marching orders this season after seeing red at the Boleyn Ground during the home defeat to AFC Bournemouth.

Jenkinson denied Cherries' attacker Max Gradel – who had tormented the Hammers all afternoon - a goalscoring chance in the box after he beat the Arsenal loanee for pace. The resultant penalty was confidently dispatched by Callum Wilson who completed his first ever top-flight hat-trick, effectively sealing the win, despite a late rally from the home side. Jenkinson joins Adrian, James Collins and James Tomkins as players who have already been sent off in 2015/16 and last seasons’ Fair Play winners can forget about any notion of securing an alternative route into the Europe this year.

Carl Jenkinson will miss West Ham's week one match due to ineligibility.

Jenkinson is ineligible to play against his parent club Arsenal so he will have to remain on the sidelines for this one. Joey O'Brien or James Tomkins will fill in for him for this week, but worry not, Jenkinson will be ready to return in week two.

Carl Jenkinson has signed a new five-year contract at Arsenal and been immediately loaned to West Ham United for a second consecutive season.

With rumors earlier in the summer that he might head to Sunderland or elsewhere on loan for the upcoming season, Carl Jenkinson's future has been sorted out. A second consecutive season at Upton Park should help the player's development and the long-term security of his contract at Arsenal should stabilize the right back position at the Emirates beyond the time when Mathieu Debuchy's contract expires. With Jenkinson signed to a long term deal and Bellerin signed through the 2016-2017 season and rumored to be signing an extension, Arsenal shouldn't have to worry about right back for many years to come.

West Ham chairman David Gold has revealed the club are "working hard" behind the scenes to secure the services of Arsenal full-back Carl Jenkinson for another season.

Jenkinson had a successful loan spell at the club during 2014/15 and new manager Slaven Bilic is keen on retaining the services of the Arsenal full-back for another year. Having seen his opportunities limited by Calum Chambers and Hector Bellerin at the Emirates Jenkinson is prepared to go elsewhere to gain valuable first team experience although any chance of a permanent move look to be ruled out with Arsenal keen on extending his current deal. Sunderland were believed to be front runners for the defender having had a $3 million loan fee agreed but it now looks like the deal won't be happening. West Ham begin their season today playing Lusitanos in the Europa League qualifiers – a game which will see Reece Oxford become the Hammers’ youngest-ever-first-team player at 16 years and 198 days.

Sunderland have secured the services of Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson on a season-long loan…

The signing represents good business for Sunderland as there was competition for the England Under-21 defender. After a successful loan period last season, West Ham were looking to make the move permanent but Arsenal are keen to keep Jenkinson under contract so only prepared to listen to loan offers. An enquiry was also made from Southampton, who look resigned to losing Nathaniel Clyne. The Saints turned down an initial £10 million bid from Liverpool, but Manchester United have also declared an interest. But now he has been exposed to conversations about what players are earning in the England squad, a move to a bigger club/ salary (choose one) looks inevitable.

Carl Jenkinson will miss GW29 because he is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Jenkinson is on loan at West Ham and his contract doesn't allow him to face Arsenal. The defender has been solid this season but fantasy managers will have to find another option this weekend. He is worth holding on to and shouldn't be dropped.

With Arsenal light at right back, the club has revealed that there is no recall clause in the player's year-long loan to West Ham.

Carl Jenkinson has played both regularly and well on loan at West Ham this season and would have represented a good solution to Arsenal's right back crisis this season. Unfortunately, Arsene Wenger didn't foresee the potential crisis at right back and no recall clause was inserted. That leaves Hector Bellerin and Calum Chambers as potential in-house replacements for the injured Mathieu Debuchy or some sort of move in the transfer window.

Carl Jenkinson has been great for West Ham United in recent weeks and even better for fantasy managers.

Jenkinson has finished in double digits in three of the past four weeks and finished this week with 11 points despite not getting a clean sheet. Most of his points on the season have come from three clean sheets, 16 passes intercepted, 15 tackles won, 12 successful crosses, and 10 corners won. That production can easily be sustained and his £ 9.65 M price tag is affordable considering his consistency. He is one of our top defenders for week 17.

West Ham United and Aston Villa ended in a very entertaining 0-0 draw.

That's right, entertaining. It's not common we see a good 0-0 match but this one had all the action required to make it into a top Premier League match. Brad Guzan probably deserves to be Man of the Match after an incredible series of saves to end the game, as the Hammers pushed hard towards the end. Star striker Andy Carroll returned from injury off the bench and had two late headers that almost went in, but he is still a far ways away from being a fantasy option. It was a disappointing draw for the Hammers but they played well and fans have something to be optimistic about this season.
