Mark Noble has been restored to the West Ham starting XI for Tuesday’s clash with Watford in the Premier League.
The Hammers have made four changes for the clash against the Hornets, with Noble coming into the team to replace Declan Rice, who is suspended.
Arthur Masuaku, Nikola Vlasic, and Pablo Fornals have all dropped out of the team – the latter is not even in the squad – with Ben Johnson playing at left-back, and Said Benrahma and Manuel Lanzini joining Jarrod Bowen in providing support to Mikey Antonio.
Fornals has been excluded from the squad after testing positive for COVID.
Armstrong Oko-Flex, the youngster who has been so impressive in the youth teams, is named as a substitute.
Full West Ham XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Johnson; Noble, Soucek; Bowen, Lanzini, Benrahma; Antonio. Subs: Areola, Ashby, Fredericks, Masuaku, Alese, Kral, Vlasic, Oko-Flex, Yarmolenko.
Full Watford XI: Bachmann; Kiko, Sierralta, Cathcart, Masina; Kucka, Tufan, Sissoko; Hernandez, King, Dennis. Subs: Angelini, Louza, Joao Pedro, Sema, Gosling, Fletcher, Morris, Conteh.
