Nobes on the bench

Full West Ham XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals; Antonio. Subs: Areola, Randolph, Fredericks, Johnson, Masuaku, Noble, Kral, Yarmolenko, Okoflex. 

Full Brighton XI: Sanchez, Cucurella, Webster, Dunk, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Gross, Welbeck, March, Caicedo, Veltman. Subs: Steele, Lamptey, Maupay, Mwepu, Lallana, Alzate, Duffy, Offiah, Ferguson. 

Mark Noble is on the bench for his final West Ham appearance.

The Hammers skipper has not been named in the starting XI for the final day clash with Brighton.

A win on the final day of the season, of course, would go a long way to helping David Moyes’ side finish sixth and qualify for the Europa League.

To do so, the Irons will need to win and hope that Manchester United drop points against Crystal Palace.

Amazingly, the Irons haven’t beaten Brighton since 2012, when the two sides met in the Championship.

As a result, Moyesie has gone strong with his line-up and has picked Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek as his central midfield pairing, as he has done throughout the season.

Elsewhere, Lukasz Fabianski plays in goal. Vlad Coufal plays at right-back, with Craig Dawson and Kurt Zouma at centre-back and Aaron Cresswell at left-back.

Pablo Fornals, Manuel Lanzini, and Jarrod Bowen provide support to Mikey Antonio.
