David Moyes is clearly taking today’s game very seriously given the team he named to take on Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup.
First things first though, Vladi Coufal is not included as a result of covid and although there are stories out there that Harrison Ashby was the other, we understand that in fact Kurt Zouma is also down with it.
As we predicted Ryan Fredericks comes in at right back and Arthur Masuaku us dropped to the bench in favour of Ben Johnson with Diop and Dawson remaining at the centre of defence.
Both Declan and Tomas are involved in front of them with Nokola Vlasic and Manuel Lanzini taking their place in a midfield three with Mikey Antonio and Jarrod Bowen both involved.
West Ham United: Areola, Fredericks, Dawson, Diop, Johnson, Rice ©️, Souček, Vlašić, Lanzini, Bowen, Antonio
Subs: Randolph (GK), Masuaku, Alese, Baptiste, Král, Noble, Fornals, Okoflex, Yarmolenko
