Predicted Line-ups – Gameweek 30

West Ham United

Winston Reid and Sam Byram are both expected to miss the rest of the season after picking up knee and ankle injuries respectively in the 4-1 defeat to Swansea City. But Angelo Ogbonnahas trained fully this week after missing the trip to south Wales due to illness, and is available, while James Collins is still being monitored following a slight hamstring problem. Should David Moyes stick with a three-man defence, Ogbonna and potentially Collins could start alongside Aaron Cresswell, with Declan Rice likely to be on standby to start in place of Collins. After replacing Patrice Evra at half-time against Swansea, Michail Antonio could return to the teamsheet at left wing-back, having now scored in each of the last two Gameweeks. Joao Mario dropped to the bench last weekend, but Moyes could decide to leave out Chicharito, allowing Mario and Manuel Lanzini to operate behind Marko Arnautovic in the lone striker role. Alternatively, Moyes may consider switching to a four-man defence, which would allow Antonio to move into a more attacking role, with Cresswell playing at left-back. Arthur Masuaku serves the final match of his six-game suspension, while Edimilson Fernandes, Pedro Obiang and Andy Carroll remain sidelined.
