Team news: One change for West Ham United at Arsenal

Arthur Masuaku


West Ham United boss David Moyes makes one change to his side to take on Arsenal on Saturday evening.

The Hammers boss welcomes Arthur Masuaku into his starting XI, as skipper Mark Noble misses out with a toe injury.

Noble was unable to train at the end of the week, so drops out of the matchday 18 in the only change from the squad which faced Newcastle United a week ago.

Declan Rice takes over the armband in the No16's absence, and he is joined in the middle of the park by Tomas Soucek and Pablo Fornals.

Angelo Ogbonna and Issa Diop continue in the heart of the Hammers' defence, alongside Ryan Fredericks and Aaron Cresswell.

Jarrod Bowen supports forward Michail Antonio, with Sebastien Haller, who opened his goalscoring account for the season against Charlton in midweek, giving an option from the bench.

West Ham United: Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Masuaku, Rice (c), Soucek, Fornals, Bowen, Antonio
Subs: Randolph, Johnson, Balbuena, Lanzini, Felipe Anderson, Yarmolenko, Haller

Arsenal: Leno, Bellerin, Gabriel, Holding, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Willian, Aubameyang (c), Lacazette
Subs: Macey, Kolasinac David Luiz, Elneny, Maitland-Niles, Pepe, Nketiah

Referee: Michael Oliver
