Team news: Moyes names strong line-up at Gillingham

David Moyes


West Ham United name an experienced side to take on Gillingham in their Emirates FA Cup third round tie on Sunday evening.

Manager David Moyes makes only three changes to the XI which defeated AFC Bournemouth in his first game in charge on New Year’s Day.

Issa Diop, Arthur Masuaku and Manuel Lanzini are the men to come in, with Aaron Cresswell, Mark Noble and Pablo Fornals the players who make way.

Lukasz Fabianski continues in goal after making his comeback from a hip injury recently, with Diop joining skipper for the night Angelo Ogbonna and Fabian Balbuena at the back.

Winston Reid is named on the bench as he targets first team minutes for the first time since suffering a serious knee injury two months short of two years ago.

Academy graduate Nathan Holland, fresh from making his Premier League debut at Wolves in December, is also among the substitutes.

West Ham United: Fabianski, Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Ogbonna (c), Masuaku, Snodgrass, Rice, Lanzini, Felipe Anderson, Haller
Subs: Roberto, Zabaleta, Reid, Sanchez, Fornals, Holland, Ajeti

Gillingham: Bonham, O'Keefe, Ehmer (c), Ogilvie, Hanlan, Fuller, Jones, Lee, Jakubiak, O'Connor, Tucker
Subs: Walsh, Hodson, Willock, Ndjoli, Charles-Cook, Pringle, Marshall

Referee: Andrew Madley
