Team news: Hammers unchanged at Palace, Arnautovic back on the bench

Chicharito in action against Crystal Palace

Manuel Pellegrini names an unchanged starting eleven for Saturday's London derby at Crystal Palace, as the Hammers aim to build on Monday's excellent draw against Liverpool.

Marko Arnautovic returns to the bench after missing out on Monday with a foot injury, so Chicharito continues up front with Felipe Anderson and Michail Antonio in support from the flanks.

Ryan Fredericks keeps his place at right back after playing his part in keeping the Reds' front trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane quiet.

He lines up alongside Angelo Ogbonna, Issa Diop and Aaron Cresswell in the Hammers' back four.

Declan Rice anchors the midfield, with skipper Mark Noble and Robert Snodgrass completing the central three.

West Ham United: Fabianski, Fredericks, Ogbonna, Diop, Cresswell, Rice, Noble (c), Snodgrass, Antonio, Felipe Anderson, Chicharito
Subs: Adrian, Zabaleta, Masuaku, Obiang, Diangana, Carroll, Arnautovic

Crystal Palace: Guaita, Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Sakho, van Aanholt, Milivojevic (c), McArthur, Schlupp, Townsend, Zaha, Benteke
Subs: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Meyer, Sako, Ayew, Batshauyi
