Team news: Haller starts in only change at Wolves

Sebastien Haller


Sebastien Haller returns to the West Ham United starting XI for Wednesday night’s Premier League fixture at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Frenchman comes in for Michail Antonio, whose game time is being managed as he returns from three months of rehabilitation from a hamstring injury.

The switch up-front is the only change from Manuel Pellegrini’s side which defeated Chelsea at the weekend, as the Hammers go for a second straight win.

That means Fabian Balbuena continues at centre-half alongside Angelo Ogbonna, and David Martin is in goal again, after he marked his debut with a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge.

21-year-old winger Nathan Holland is named among the substitutes for the first time in the Premier League since the Hammers' trip to Manchester United in April.

West Ham United: Martin, Fredericks, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Noble (c), Snodgrass, Felipe Anderson, Fornals, Haller
Subs: Roberto, Zabaleta, Masuaku, Sanchez, Holland, Yarmolenko, Ajeti

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Patricio, Doherty, Dendoncker, Coady (c), Saiss, Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Traore, Jota, Jimenez
Subs: Ruddy, Kilman, Bennett, Neto, Vinagre, Ashley-Seal, Cutrone

Referee: Andre Marriner
