Team news: Three changes at Wembley, Chicharito starts, Arnie out



West Ham United manager David Moyes makes three changes to his starting XI for tonight’s Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur.

Captain Mark Noble, Chicharito and Declan Rice all return to the team at Wembley Stadium, with Andy Carroll dropping to the substitutes’ bench and Aaron Cresswell missing out with a back injury. Marko Arnautovic is not involved tonight.

It looks like being a 5-3-2 formation for the Hammers.

After impressing as a half-time substitute in Tuesday’s 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at London Stadium, Noble will play in midfield alongside Pedro Obiang and Cheikhou Kouyate this evening.

Chicharito will lead the line ahead of Manuel Lanzini, while Rice will play as the third centre-half alongside Winston Reid and Angelo Ogbonna.

Adrian makes his second Wembley appearance of the season in goal, with Pablo Zabaleta and Arthur Masuaku filling the wing-back positions.

Carroll is joined on the bench by Joe Hart, Andre Ayew, Sead Haksabanovic, Domingos Quina, Moses Makasi and Toni Martinez.

For Tottenham, Harry Kane returns to the starting XI in place of Fernando Llorente, while Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko are in for Kieran Trippier and Erik Lamela.

Spurs look to be playing a 4-2-3-1 system, with Kane leading the line ahead of a midfield of Sissoko, Alli and Son.

Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier will sit deeper ahead of a back four of Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen and Ben Davies, with Hugo Lloris in goal.
