Team news: Hammers unchanged for Tottenham test


West Ham United name an unchanged starting XI for Sunday's Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

David Moyes' men are looking to make it three straight wins following convincing victories against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City prior to the international break, and the manager sticks with the team that achieved that success at the King Power Stadium.

That means Jarrod Bowen will look to score for a third consecutive match in a Hammers attacking trio also made up of the in-form Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals.

Declan Rice will skipper the team in central midfield alongside Tomas Soucek, while Vladimir Coufal plays his second game as a Hammer in a back five.

Angelo Ogbonna, Fabian Balbuena and Aaron Cresswell are set to line-up at centre-back, with Arthur Masuaku at left wing-back.

Ryan Fredericks has recovered from a hamstring injury to take a place on the bench, while Issa Diop is also named among the substitutes after returning from his self-isolation period following a positive Covid-19 test.

Kick-off at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is at 16:30 BST.

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

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (c), Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Ndombele, Son, Kane, Bergwijn
Subs: Hart, Doherty, Davies, Winks, Bale, Moura, Vinicius

Referee: Paul Tierney
