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

West Ham head to Manchester United today with Vladimir Coufal back from suspension and Kalvin Phillips dropped to the bench.

Coufal missed Thursday night's 1-1 draw with Bournemouth having been sent off for two quick-fire yellow cards in the 2-2 at Sheffield United earlier this month.


His return appeared to mean that Moyes faced a decision over whether to stick with Ben Johnson at right-back or else bring Coufal straight back into the team, but both actually start today.

Kalvin Phillips made his Hammers debut against the Cherries but endured a nightmare start, with his error gifting Dominic Solanke a third-minute opener.

That match was Phillips's first Premier League outing of the season and Moyes has suggested his minutes could need managing in the early part of his loan spell.

He is left on the bench this afternoon, though Nayef Aguerd is back starting after Morocco's exit from the Africa Cup of Nations. Konstantinos Mavropanos drops to the bench along with Phillips.

Lucas Paqueta and Michail Antonio remain sidelined through injury, with the former's absence leaving Moyes struggling for options on the left of his attack.

Said Benrahma has now officially left for Lyon, while Pablo Fornals' transfer to Real Betis also went through after the deadline.

West Ham XI: Areola, Johnson, Zouma, Aguerd, Coufal, Soucek, Alvarez, Emerson Palmieri, Kudus, Ward-Prowse, Bowen

Subs: Fabianski, Cresswell, Phillips, Mavropanos, Cornet, Ings, Ogbonna, Mubama, Scarles.

Injuries: Paqueta, Antonio
