Paqueta starts

The 26-year-old comes in at the expense of Michail Antonio after being injured in the match against  Bristol City in the 1-1 draw last month.

Having recovered from a calf injury he will be hoping to add to the five goals he has scored in all competitions this season At the top end he will join Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen, who both got on the scoresheet in the reverse fixture in November.

Kalvin Phillips drops out of the line-up through suspension, having picked up a red card for two bookable offences last time out at Nottingham Forest, with Tomáš Souček taking his place next to Edson Álvarez and James Ward-Prowse in midfield.


Dinos Mavropanos comes in for Nayef Aguerd to partner skipper Kurt Zouma  and Vladimír Coufal and Emerson keep their places in the full-back positions. Alphonse Areola starts in goal.

There is plenty of experience on the bench, with Łukasz Fabiański, Angelo Ogbonna, Aguerd, Danny Ings and Antonio among the nine replacements, while Ben Johnson, George Earthy, Ollie Scarles and Divin Mubama will also look to make an impact if called upon by boss Moyes.
