Massive Moyes Turnaround

David Moyes has rung the changes for the clash with Anderlecht, making nine alterations to his team from the win over Wolves.

The only injury-enforced absence is Maxwel Cornet, who was not able to return to fitness in time for the encounter in the Europa Conference League.

There are just two players who have kept their place from the game with Wolves, with them being Jarrod Bowen and Craig Dawson. 

Elsewhere, Alphonse Areola replaces Lukasz Fabianski in goal; Thilo Kehrer is replaced by Vlad Coufal at right-back, with Dawson partnered by Angelo Ogbonna and Ben Johnson at centre-back. Emerson comes in at left wing-back.

Both Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek are rested and replaced by Manuel Lanzini and Flynn Downes.
