Team news: Masuaku returns to starting XI, Antonio on bench

Arthur Masuaku in action against Leicester City


West Ham United make one change to their starting XI for Wednesday's Premier League game at Leicester City.

Arthur Masuaku returns to the team on the left flank, as Pablo Fornals drops to the substitutes' bench.

The Hammers take on the Foxes just three-and-a-half weeks after hosting them at London Stadium, when Brendan Rodgers' men claimed a 2-1 success.

Darren Randolph makes his second start since returning to the club from Middlesbrough, with Masuaku joined by Pablo Zabaleta, Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell in defence.

Mark Noble scored a stunner in West Ham's 2-0 victory at this venue in Moyes' last visit here in 2018, and he lines up in midfield alongside Declan Rice.

Manuel Lanzini and Robert Snodgrass support Sebastien Haller in attack, while Michail Antonio returns to the bench after shrugging off a hamstring injury.

West Ham United: Randolph, Zabaleta, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Masuaku, Rice, Noble (c), Snodgrass, Lanzini, Haller
Subs: Martin, Reid, Balbuena, Sanchez, Fornals, Antonio, Ajeti

Leicester City: Schmeichel (c), Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell, Mendy, Tielemans, Perez, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy
Subs: Ward, Justin, Morgan, Ndidi, Albrighton, Gray, Iheanacho

Referee: David Coote
