West Ham are without the ill Declan Rice for tonight’s Premier League showdown with Manchester City.

The England midfielder is absent from David Moyes’ somewhat depleted matchday squad which only contains seven substitutes, including two goalkeepers.

Tomas Soucek and Nayef Aguerd also miss out along with the injured Kurt Zouma as Angelo Ogbonna, Thilo Kehrer, Aaron Cresswell and Flynn Downes all come in.

West Ham could be without Zouma for the rest of the season due to ankle ligament damage suffered against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca remains sidelined after knee surgery.

“We’ve got one or two knocks and niggles,” Moyes had said on Tuesday.

“Kurt Zouma is the biggest fear, we think we might lose Kurt for a few weeks, but we’re still sort of assessing his ankle at the minute.

“I wouldn’t want to say just now because I’m not the medical man, but Kurt is a bit different. Kurt is incredibly good at getting himself ready and back fit. We’re hoping he will be fine.”

West Ham XI: Fabianski, Coufal, Kehrer, Ogbonna, Emerson Palmieri, Downes, Lucas Paqueta, Bowen, Fornals, Cresswell, Antonio

Subs: Johnson, Lanzini, Areola, Cornet, Ings, Benrahma, Anang
