Team News: Masuaku starts for Hammers at Manchester City

Tomas Soucek


Arthur Masuaku starts for the Hammers as David Moyes makes one change to his side to face Manchester City on Sunday.

Masuaku comes in for Jarrod Bowen in the only change to the starting XI from last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

That means Michail Antonio and Lukasz Fabiański return after being rested for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League tie at Rapid Vienna.

Declan Rice skippers the team in central midfield alongside Tomáš Souček, while Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma, who scored the winning penalty in last month’s Carabao Cup victory over the Citizens, support Antonio in attack.

Manchester City name just eight substitutes, including two goalkeepers, with Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden and Ferran Torres all absent.

West Ham United: Fabiański, Johnson, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Rice (c), Souček, Benrahma, Fornals, Masuaku, Antonio
Subs: Areola (GK), Coufal, Diop, Král, Noble, Lanzini, Vlašić, Yarmolenko, Bowen

Manchester City: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Gundogan (c), Rodri, Silva, Sterling, Mahrez, Jesus
Subs: Steffen (GK), Carson (GK), Zinchenko, Stones, Aké, Fernandinho, McAtee, Palmer

Referee: Michael Oliver
