Team news: Five changes for Hammers, Lanzini & Yarmolenko start

Manuel Lanzini


Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko come into the West Ham United starting XI for Tuesday's Premier League game at Southampton, among five changes for David Moyes' men.

The attacking duo are rewarded for sprightly 45-minute performances from the bench in helping rescue the Hammers a point against Brighton little over 48 hours ago.

Ryan Fredericks and Pablo Fornals are also promoted to the first eleven, while Craig Dawson makes a Hammers debut alongside Angelo Ogbonna in the heart of the Hammers defence.

Jarrod Bowen, Mark Noble, Ben Johnson, Vladimir Coufal and Fabian Balbuena are the players to drop out.

Michail Antonio, meanwhile, is named on the bench after overcoming the hamstring issue which has forced him to miss the past five matches.

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

Southampton: McCarthy, Walker-Peters, Stephens, Bednarek, Redmond, Djenepo, Ward-Prowse (c), Romeu, Walcott, Ings, Adams
Subs: Forster, Valery, Smallbone, Diallo, Vokins, Salisu, Armstrong, Long, Obafemi

Referee: Andrew Madley
