Team News: Jarrod Bowen returns to West Ham team at Fulham


David Moyes makes just one change to his West Ham United team for this evening's Premier League fixture at Fulham.

Jarrod Bowen returns to the starting XI at Craven Cottage, replacing Ryan Fredericks, who drops to the substitutes' bench against his former club.

Bowen makes his 21st start and continues his record of having appeared in every Premier League match in 2020/21.

Four of Bowen's teammates maintain their own records of having started all 23 top-flight games this season - Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna, Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard makes his second start for the Hammers, having kicked-off his career with two goals in Wednesday's 3-1 win at Aston Villa.

So, Łukasz Fabiański starts in goal behind a back four of Vladimír Coufal, Craig Dawson, Ogbonna and Cresswell.

England's Declan Rice captains the side alongside Czech Footballer of the Year Tomáš Souček in midfield, with Lingard, Bowen and Saïd Benrahma providing the support for Michail Antonio.

Club captain Mark Noble returns to the substitutes' bench in place of young striker Mipo Odubeko, who scored for the U23s at Brighton & Hove Albion last night.

Alongside Fredericks and Noble, the nine-man bench also comprises goalkeeper David Martin, defenders Ben Johnson, Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena, midfielders Pablo Fornals and Manuel Lanzini and forward Andriy Yarmolenko.
