Moyes makes five changes after two new injuries

Michail Antonio and Aaron Cresswell return from injury and Craig Dawson from suspension to start for West Ham at Burnley tonight.
Antonio and Creswell have been absent with hamstring injuries since the 3-2 victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City in early April respectively.
They return as two of five changes to David Moyes’ side for the Turf Moor clash, with Craig Dawson, Manuel Lanzini, and Saïd Benrahma also named in the starting XI.  Club captain Mark Noble misses out altogether with a calf injury he suffered against Chelsea, so Aaron Cresswell will wear the captain’s armband.
Angelo Ogbonna is also missing after suffering from a grade 1 hamstring pull but it is not thought to be serious.
Declan Rice did not pass a fitness test but looks odds on for a return against Everton on Sunday 9th May.
West Ham United: Fabiański, Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell (c), Souček, Fornals, Lanzini, Benrahma, Lingard, Antonio
Subs: Randolph (GK), Trott (GK), Fredericks, Johnson, Alves, Balbuena, Coventry, Bowen, Odubeko
