David Moyes has made four changes to his West Ham team for tonight’s FA Cup clash against Manchster United.

Lukasz Fabianski and Vladimir Coufal are injured while Danny Ings is not available for the game at Old Trafford.

Manager Moyes confirmed on Tuesday that Fabianski suffered a fractured cheekbone and eye socket in a collision with Nottingham Forest defender Felipe during Saturday’s 4-0 victory in the Premier League.


The Pole is unlikely to have started at Old Trafford in any case, with regular cup goalkeeper Alphonse Areola now set for a spell as No1.

Coufal, meanwhile, has been playing through a heel problem in recent weeks and was forced off at half-time against Forest.

Ings - who scored twice in that game - is cup-tied having already turned out for Aston Villa in this year’s competition, so Michail Antonio comes into the XI.

Moyes makes four changes to his side in total, with Areola, Emerson Palmieri and Pablo Fornals also drafted in. Jarrod Bowen is on the bench meanwhile.

West Ham XI: Areola, Johnson, Aguerd, Ogbonna, Emerson Palmieri, Soucek, Rice, Lucas Paqueta, Fornals, Antonio, Benrahma

Subs: Cresswell, Scamacca, Downes, Bowen, Kehrer, Anang, Swyer, Mubama, Lanzini
