West Ham United have named their squad and substitutes for this afternoon’s Premier League meeting with Leicester City at the London Stadium.
The Hammers are increasingly dreaming of a top-four spot and putting Brendan Rodgers’ foxes to the sword this afternoon would see them drop to fourth, one point ahead of Chelsea; they are currently six in sixth, but having played one game less than fifth, Liverpool and Chelsea in fourth.
They face a tough demand against third-placed Leicester and are without key men Declan Rice and Michail Antonio due to injury.
In the previous match between the two teams this season, West Ham beat the winners 3-0 at King Power Stadium in October.
For this afternoon’s game, Hammers boss David Moyes picks Lukasz Fabianski in goal, while at full back he has Vladimir Coufal and Arthur Masuaku. In central defense, Craig Dawson, Issa Diop and Aaron Cresswell line up.
Experienced Mark Noble takes a midfield with Tomas Soucek, while Pablo Fornals and Jesse Lingard support Jarrod Bowen.
If Moyes needs to shake things up, he has options off the bench he can turn to within 90 minutes, including Said Benrahma and Fabian Balbuena.
