West Ham XI vs Stockport: Confirmed team news, predicted lineup, injury latest for FA Cup today – Evening Standard

With coronavirus restrictions limiting the number of academy players that can join the first-team bubble, and with the squad having had a long spell off since their last game at Everton on New Year’s Day, the Hammers boss will name a strong side against the National League club.

“We have a good squad of players,” said Moyes. “Most clubs have not been able to use young players because they are outside the bubble. We won’t have a squad of young players.”

With Sebastien Haller having been sold, Michail Antonio is likely to lead the line and make his first start since coming back from hamstring injury, while Said Benrahma should get another chance to impress.

Predicted West Ham XI (4-4-2): Randolph; Johnson, Balbuena, Diop, Cresswell; Yarmolenko, Noble, Rice, Benrahma; Lanzini, Antonio

West Ham squad from: Randolph, Martin, Balbuena, Diop, Ogbonna, Dawson, Coufal, Johnson, Cresswell, Masuaku, Noble, Rice, Soucek, Fornals, Lanzini, Yarmolenko, Benrahma, Bowen.

Doubts: Fabianski, Fredericks
