West Ham United will welcome Leeds United at the London Stadium on Sunday as they look to secure a positive result in the third round of the FA Cup. The Hammers managed to earn a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

David Moyes could choose to go with the 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make one tweak to his starting XI for this game. Nikola Vlasic could play from the start while Mark Noble will probably have to settle for a spot on the bench.

Łukasz Fabiański will feature in goal for the Hammers after shipping in two goals versus the Eagles in his last appearance. Issa Diop will play alongside Craig Dawson at the heart of the West Ham backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.

Vladimír Coufal will look to give a good account of himself at right-back while Ben Johnson fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Moyes will ask both of them to pick and choose their moments to join in on the attack.

Ryan Fredericks will be named on the bench as he offers cover for the right-back position.

Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice will operate as the holding midfielders as they hope to dominate possession at the centre of the park and create some decent chances in the final third.

Manuel Lanzini will focus on putting in a productive performance as the left-sided wide player while Jarrod Bowen looks to put his pace to good use down the right-wing. Nikola Vlasic could get the nod to play in the number ten position as Pablo Fornals is unlikely to be risked in this cup game.

As mentioned earlier, Mark Noble will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to influence the game in the second half if required.


Michail Antonio will once again lead the line for the Hammers up top. The English striker managed to register a goal versus Crystal Palace and would be eager to make a difference when he laces up to face off against the Leeds defenders this weekend.
