Three changes

David Moyes has made three changes to his West Ham team for the clash with Burnley.

The Hammers were in brilliant form on Thursday, as they thumped Lyon 3-0 in their own backyard to qualify for the Europa League semi-finals.

As expected, Lukasz Fabianski has returned in goal, replacing Alphonse Areola, who is now firmly the cup goalkeeper.

Elsewhere, Nikola Vlasic comes in for Pablo Fornals, and Aaron Cresswell returns to the XI, with Ben Johnson moving to right-back and Vlad Coufal on the bench.

Elsewhere, the team is as it was against Lyon, with Craig Dawson and Issa Diop paired in central defence again; Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek are partnered in midfield and Jarrod Bowen and Manuel Lanzini join Vlasic in providing support to Mikey Antonio.
