Michail Antonio misses out through injury as West Ham United take on bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United this evening.
Kick-off in east London is at 18:00 GMT.
“Fatigue” was cited as the reason for the striker’s withdrawal in the goalless draw with Fulham in Gameweek 23 and subsequent absence in the FA Cup fifth round last Tuesday.
But another hamstring problem has put paid to Antonio’s involvement tonight, with David Moyes saying ahead of kick-off:
Angelo Ogbonna is another injury-related absentee but Issa Diop is fine to feature despite sustaining a knock to the head last week.
Enda Stevens and Ben Osborn return for Sheffield United, with Max Lowe dropping to the bench and John Fleck missing out through injury.
Chris Wilder said of Fleck ahead of kick-off:
John, unfortunately, was taken ill on Saturday night, early Sunday morning, so he’s just having tests back in Sheffield. He didn’t make the trip down with us.
West Ham United XI: Fabianski, Diop, Dawson, Cresswell, Coufal, Soucek, Rice, Johnson, Lingard, Lanzini, Bowen.
Sheffield United XI: Ramsdale, Basham, Egan, Ampadu, Bogle, Lundstram, Norwood, Osborn, Stevens, McGoldrick, Sharp.
