Injury news – West Ham

There are some doubts over Michail Antonio after his thigh injury.

He has recovered from his problem and is back in training but he could start on the bench if David Moyes chooses against risking him.

Mark Noble could be back after a rib injury, while Angelo Ogbonna has overcome a groin injury.

Andriy Yarmolenko will miss out.

Last five meetings

The Hammers actually have a remarkably poor record against the Blades.

The five meetings stretch back to 2006; the Hammers won 1-0 at Upton Park but haven’t beaten them since.

A 3-0 loss at Bramall Lane followed that in 2007, before a 1-1 draw in the League Cup which the Irons lost on penalties.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium last season, while Chris Wilder’s men won 1-0 at Bramall Lane.

Referee

Martin Atkinson will be the man in the middle. Constantine Hatzidakis and Peter Kirkup are the assistants, while Robert Jones is the fourth official. Jonathan Moss will be the VAR official, and the assistant VAR will be Andy Halliday.
