Team news: Benrahma makes full debut at Leeds

Said Bentahma

Saïd Benrahma is called into the West Ham United starting XI for the first time as the Hammers take on Leeds United on Friday night.

The Algerian forward, who has already laid on two assists in his four substitute appearances to date, gets the chance to impress at Elland Road from the off alongside Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals and Sebastien Haller at the top end of the pitch.

David Moyes makes one change to his starting XI from the side which featured against Manchester United a week ago, as Arthur Masuaku misses out.

Sebastien Haller continues up front, with Michail Antonio absent with a hamstring problem.

Aaron Cresswell becomes just the fourth West Ham United player to reach 200 Premier League appearances, while Declan Rice wears the captain's armband.

West Ham United: Fabianski, Coufal, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice (c), Soucek, Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals, Haller
Subs: Randolph, Fredericks, Johnson, Dawson, Noble, Snodgrass, Lanzini

Leeds United: Meslier, Ayling, Cooper (c), Alioski, Klich, Phillips, Dallas, Raphinha, Harrison, Rodrigo, Bamford
