Moyes forced to make one change

Angelo Ogbonna will miss an estimated four weeks with an ankle injury while Andriy Yarmolenko has suffered knee ligament damage keeping him out for months.

Issa Diop has been cleared to play after his head clash with Anthony Martial last week in the FA cup with David Moyes non committal whether Fabian Balbuena will overcome a calf strain he picked up in a warm up against Manchester United.

Arthur Masuaku remains in light training after his knee operation but is no expected to match fit until March at the earliest. Darren Randolph’s availability remains unknown since suffering a knock in training.

Michail Antonio faces a late fitness test but is hoped to be starting in this evening’s game against Sheffield United.

David Moyes will be forced to make at least one change from the team that drew with Fulham with Diop the most likely candidate to replace the injured Ogbonna with doubts over Babuena’s fitness.

Claret and Hugh predicted starting XI  Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Lingard, Benrahma, Antonio

Substitutes Balbuena, Lanzini, Noble, Fornals, Fredericks, Martin, Johnson, Odubeko
