Moyes makes two big changes

David Moyes is not a manager who bows to public opinion but he certainly finds himself in tune with it after bringing in Manu Lanzini for the match against Chelsea today.

He replaces Said Benrahma and in a bid to shake things up after taking just one point from the last three games.  Issa Diop is also called up – like Manu for his first game of the Premier League season.

Both have waited patiently and as far as I’m concerned are decent changes as the team looks for what would be a huge confidence boosting victory.

As expected Vladi Coufal retains the right back role after a great performance against Brighton and Hove Albion in the 1-1 draw with young Ben Johnson switching to the left side in the expected absence of Aaron Cresswell.

Pablo Fornals is surprisingly left on the bench along with Arthur Masuaku and Alex Kral with Nikola Vlasic also hoping for a slice of some action.
