Team news: Arnautovic starts against Burnley

Marko Arnautovic and Issa Diop

Marko Arnautovic returns to the West Ham United starting XI for Saturday’s London Stadium clash with Burnley.

The Hammers No7 missed last weekend’s draw with Leicester City due to illness, but will look to add to his four goals for the season against the Clarets.

Arnautovic’s comeback is one of three changes Manuel Pellegrini makes to the team which drew at the King Power Stadium, with Pedro Obiang and Aaron Cresswell also coming into the starting XI.

Obiang comes in for Mark Noble, who is serving the second match of a three-game suspension, while Cresswell replaces Arthur Masuaku at left-back.

Youngster Grady Diangana continues in attack, earning his second Premier League start of the campaign.

Burnley name former Hammer Joe Hart in their starting line-up.

West Ham United: Fabianski, Zabaleta (c), Balbuena, Diop, Cresswell, Rice, Obiang, Snodgrass, Diangana, Felipe Anderson, Arnautovic
