Slaven Bilic looks set to recall Sam Byram as the Irons look for a morale boosting win over Middlesborough at the London Stadium tomorrow (Sat).
The right back has been out of favour since a poor game against Watford but the boss looks likely to bring him back with Alvera Arbeola playing on the left side.
Winston Reid and Angelo Ogbonna are set to form the central defensive partnership with Cheik Kouyate and Mark Noble planted in front of the back line.
The manager will need to decide whether he gives Pedro Obiang a chance in midfield or stick with Manuel Lanzini who left the action injured last week and maybe hasn’t been up to full throttle. But it would be perhaps unfair to single him out given the form of the remainder!
With Antonio, Payet and Zaza making up the rest of the side we would expect Slav to name this team: Adrian; Byram, Reid, Ogbonna, Arbeola; Kouyate, Noble, Lanzini, Antonio, Payet, Zaza.
