New Pellegrini reshuffle on cards – possible team


Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is expected to make three or four changes as the Hammers approach the critical game at Goodison Park this afternoon.

He could make up to four changes – most of which will have been predicted over the past few days – although the recall of Pablo Zabaleta may be the biggest surprise.

He could replace Ryan Fredericks with Arthur Masuaku returning on the left side of the back four in his attacking wing back role.

Other victims of the team selection could be Robert Snodgrass and Michail Antonio – neither of whom made a great impact during the best forgotten Wolves clash at the London Stadium.

Andriy Yarmolenko looks likely to replace Antonio although it is still not clear whether Mark Noble,  Declan Rice or both could be called in for the Scottish midfielder.

Possible team: Fabianski; Zaba, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku; Rice, Sanchez, Noble, Yarmolenko; Anderson, Arnautovic.
