West Ham United will lock horns with Manchester United once again on Wednesday night after suffering a 2-1 loss against them in the Premier League last weekend. The Hammers will be eager to produce an improved showing in midweek so that they can grind out a win and book a place in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.

David Moyes could choose to go with the 4-2-3-1 formation and will be inclined to make a few changes to his first team for this cup game. Michail Antonio is expected to resume his centre-forward duties for West Ham in midweek after serving out his one-match suspension last weekend.

Defence

Alphonso Areola will feature in between the sticks for the Hammers while Łukasz Fabiański gets a rest on the bench. Issa Diop would probably get a chance to impress alongside Craig Dawson at the centre of Moyes’ defence as they look to stop the Man United players from creating too many chances over the 90 minutes.

Ryan Fredericks is expected to function at right-back while Arthur Masuaku fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Moyes will ask both of them to keep a good defensive shape at the back and time their runs well when linking up play going forward.

Angelo Ogbonna will be named on the bench as Moyes looks to offer him some rest this Wednesday night.

Midfield

Mark Noble will operate along with Alex Kral as the holding midfielders. Noble missed a last-minute penalty which cost West Ham a point last weekend, so he will be eager to make amends by producing a hard-working display at the centre of the park.

The talented trio of Said Benrahma, Nikola Vlasic and Andriy Yarmolenko will play just ahead of them in the Man United half as part of Moyes’ attack. Both Benrahma and Yarmolenko will have to stretch the pitch so that they can create enough space for Antonio inside the opponent’s penalty box.

Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals will have to be content with a place on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine as the second half substitutes if required.

Attack

Michail Antonio will lead the charge for the Hammers up top. The English striker will be desperate to put in a goal-scoring performance after seeing his teammates struggle against Man United without him last weekend.
