Team News: Moyes names unchanged Premier League XI to tackle Arsenal | West Ham United F.C.

Must read

Mohammed Kudus scored the second goal in the aforementioned EFL Cup victory, and he and Ben Johnson look likely to fill the wing positions, as they did at Old Trafford a week ago.

Jarrod Bowen scored one and made another in the EFL Cup fourth round victory in November, netted the opening goal in the Premier League win at Emirates Stadium in December and he again starts up front.

Mavropanos is named among the nine substitutes alongside January signing Kalvin Phillips, former Arsenal goalkeeper Łukasz Fabiański, defenders Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell, versatile young midfielder Ollie Scarles, winger Maxwel Cornet, and forwards Danny Ings and Divin Mubama.

So, with Michail Antonio and Lucas Paquetá still not ready to return from injury, the same 20 players who were named at Manchester United are named to face Arsenal this afternoon.

For Arsenal, Leandro Trossard and Jakub Kiwior start in place of Jorginho and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Ukraine star Zinchenko and Emile Smith Rowe are absent from the visitors’ squad, while Jurrien Timber, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Thomas Partey, Fabio Vieira, Gabriel Jesus and Marquinhos are not involved.
