Team News: Fornals & Masuaku in for Hammers at Everton

Pablo Fornals


Pablo Fornals and Arthur Masuaku come into the West Ham United starting XI for Saturday's Premier League game at Everton.

The Spanish midfielder is in for Andriy Yarmolenko, while Masuaku returns for the first time since being given a red card at Aston Villa, with Aaron Cresswell absent due to a minor injury.

Those are the only two changes Manuel Pellegrini makes from the side which faced Crystal Palace before the international break, as the Hammers look to get back to winning ways.

Sebastien Haller, who scored his fourth goal of the season against the Eagles, leads the line up front, supported by Fornals and Felipe Anderson in the wide positions.

Declan Rice has recovered from the illness he suffered while on international duty to take his place at the base of the Hammers midfield, while Roberto continues in goal as Lukasz Fabianski recovers from surgery on his hip muscle injury.
