Team news: Irons unchanged for season finale, Noble makes 400th start

Mark Noble

West Ham United will field an unchanged starting XI for the third successive contest, as the Irons look to close the campaign with a win against Everton.

David Moyes’ team entertain the Toffees at London Stadium the final match of the season, and the manager has named the same side to open the contest for a third match on the bounce.

The Hammers have claimed four points in their last two matches, keeping clean sheets in an away victory against Leicester City and a home draw with Manchester United.

Those results mean manager Moyes has opted to stick with his same starting XI for the third consecutive match.

Adrian, who now has eight clean sheets in all competitions to his name for the campaign, is in goal for the Hammers. The Spaniard makes his 19th Premier League appearance of the season.

The back-line is once again comprised of Declan Rice, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell. Rice, in his first full season as a senior player, makes his 26th Premier League showing of the campaign.

Pablo Zabaleta and Arthur Masuaku continue at wing-back, with the former making his 37th Premier League appearance for the Hammers – the most of any player for the Club this campaign.

Captain Mark Noble makes his 400th start for the Irons, the latest in a season filled with landmarks for the midfielder. The 31-year-old plays alongside Cheikhou Kouyate.

Joao Mario and Manuel Lanzini will also be in the side along with Hammer of the Year Marko Arnautovic. The Austrian has played a role in 15 Premier League goals this season – with ten finishes and five assists – and will be eager to take the final chance to add to his tally this afternoon.
