Six changes for West Ham

Birthday boy Manuel Pellegrini has made six changes in the West Ham side that lost against Wolves at the London Stadium.

In comes skipper Mark Noble alongside Declan Rice, both full-backs are swapped out with Zabaleta and Masuaku replacing Cresswell and Fredericks. Pedro Obiang comes back in the team after the Jack Wilshere injury news and Yamolenko starts.

A very brave change by the Chilean born manager while Adrian, Cresswell, Ogbonna, Sanchez, Snodgrass, Antonio and Lucas sit it out on the bench.

Starting XI: Fabianski; Zabaleta, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku; Rice, Obiang, Noble, Yarmolenko; Anderson, Arnautovic
