West Ham team confirmed vs Dinamo Zagreb as David Moyes makes Vlasic and Zouma decision

7

David Moyes has made five changes to his team for this evening’s Europa League Group H match against Dinamo Zagreb.

The manager has rung the changes and given a number of players a rest ahead of a hectic month of action for West Ham, which includes a double header against Manchester United.

As expected Michail Antonio starts for the Hammers, the striker is unavailable to face Manchester United on Sunday through suspension so has been handed a run out tonight.

Club captain Mark Noble is in the matchday squad but has not made the starting XI with Moyes sticking to his tried and trusted midfield paring of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

Alphonse Areola is once again on the bench with Lukasz Fabianski retaining his spot in goal.

Moyes had a fully fit squad to choose from and had a number of selection dilemmas to deal with and has gone for a new look back four.

The Scot has elected to leave Craig Dawson, Angelo Ogbonna and Vladimir Coufal out of his regular back four, with Kurt Zouma and Issa Diop coming into the heart of the defence joining Aaron Cresswell and Ryan Fredericks.

Ahead of Rice and Soucek the manager has made two changes to his attacking quartet. Croatian international Nikola Vlasic will start in his homeland with Manuel Lanzini joining him in the team, Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen are the men to make way.
