West Ham XI vs Aston Villa: Starting lineup, injury latest, confirmed team news for Premier League today

David Moyes has made two changes as West Ham welcome Aston Villa desperately needing a win today.

Moyes made seven changes for the 2-0 win over Larnaca in the Europa Conference League and more have been made for today’s Premier League clash as Moyes looks to shake off the 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Brighton last weekend. Defenders Kurt Zouma and Thilo Kehrer have replaced Ben Johnson and Angelo Ogbonna.

Antonio scored twice in Cyprus, but Danny Ings comes back in against his former club with the former missing out with an injury scare.

Alphonse Areola continues to deputise in goal with first-choice goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski out for the foreseeable with a fractured cheekbone.


Nayef Aguerd, Declan Rice and Said Benrahma all started in Europe and keep their place at the London Stadium. Jarrod Bowen also comes in and is joined by Lucas Paqueta after an injury scare of his own.
