West Ham will not have Robert Snodgrass due to a back injury, while Sebastien Haller is still a major suspect with a hip injury. Arthur Masuaku will be assessed for an ankle injury, but Moyes has no new injury concerns after last week's defeat to Tottenham. Declan Rice is expected to start the home side against a team he has been strongly linked with joining this summer, and meets good friend Mason Mount in midfield. David Moyes's side are still loitering around the relegation zone, but only thanks to the goal difference that is better than 2 goals compared to Bournemouth and 5 better than that of Aston Villa which makes them not in the red light group. .

Center-back Andreas Christensen missed out entirely on the weekend due to a hip problem that's not considered serious but will be judged before this match, while Fikayo Tomori is about to recover from muscular problems.
