Team News: Antonio returns for Leeds clash

Michail Antonio

 

Michail Antonio returns to the West Ham United starting XI for Saturday's Premier League match at Leeds United.

The No9 missed last weekend's league game against Manchester United due to suspension, and was rested for the midweek cup game against the same opposition, but returns at Elland Road.

David Moyes makes ten changes from the team which played at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup, with only Jarrod Bowen starting both there and at Elland Road.

That means Łukasz Fabiański returns in goal, with a back four of Vladimír Coufal, Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell in front of him.

Declan Rice skippers the team in midfield, alongside Tomáš Souček, with Bowen, Pablo Fornals and Saïd Benrahma supporting Antonio in attack.

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

Leeds United: Meslier, Dallas, Cresswell, Cooper (c), Firpo, Phillips, Shackleton, Klich, Raphinha, James, Rodrigo
Subs: Klaesson, Roberts, Harrison, Gelhardt, Hjelde, Drameh, Summerville, Greenwood, McCarron
