Team News: Jarrod Bowen returns to the starting XI against Leicester

Jarrod Bowen


Jarrod Bowen returns to the West Ham United starting XI for the visit of Leicester City on Sunday afternoon as David Moyes makes one change from Monday night’s win over Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

The 24-year-old scored in the 3-2 win last time out, having replaced Michail Antonio, who misses out this afternoon due to injury. 

The Hammers go into the match looking to complete a fifth Premier League double of the season, having previously beaten Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United, Leeds United and Aston Villa at home and away.

Pablo Fornals, Antonio and Bowen scored in a 3-0 win at the King Power Stadium back in October. 

Mipo Odubeko is amongst the substitutes, fresh from his hat-trick against Manchester United for the U23’s, which saw them beat the Red Devils 3-2. 

Łukasz Fabiański lines up in goal, behind what looks to be a centre-back trio of Issa Diop, Craig Dawson and Aaron Cresswell. 

Vladimír Coufal and Arthur Masuaku are likely to start as wing-backs, with Mark Noble making his 400th Premier League appearance alongside Tomáš Souček in the centre of the park. 

Jesse Lingard will be looking to add to his six goals and three assists in the Premier League, as he lines up alongside Bowen and Pablo Fornals in an attacking front three. 

West Ham United: Fabiański, Diop, Dawson, Cresswell, Coufal, Noble (c), Souček, Masuaku, Fornals, Lingard, Bowen
Subs: Martin (GK), Trott (GK), Balbuena, Alves, Johnson, Fredericks, Coventry, Benrahma, Odubeko. 

Leicester City: Schmeichel (c), Amartey, Evans, Fofana, Pereira, Praet, Tielemans, Ndidi, Castagne, Vardy, Iheanacho
Subs: Ward (GK), Mendy, Albrighton, Fuchs, Thomas, Daley-Campbell, Leshabela, Tavares, Suengchitth

Referee: Mike Dean
