West Ham United continue their festive Premier League schedule by hosting ailing Brighton at London Stadium on Sunday.
The Hammers’ visitors enter the game just two points out of the relegation zone and following a dismal 1-1 draw at home with the Premier League basement boys Sheffield United.
On Moyes’ side, however, things have been going pretty well lately. West Ham currently sit comfortably in the middle of the table, just four points behind the top six. The Scotsman will want to find consistency though, and a home draw against Graham Potter’s Brighton could be the starting point.
Lukasz Fabianski (GK) – The former Arsenal man has established himself in the Premier League since leaving the Emirates and is now the favorite between the sticks at West Ham – a sure starter.
Vladimir Coufal (RB) – The signing of the summer has been one of the most notable performers on this West Ham team recently.
Issa Diop (CB) – Moyes having chosen to switch to a four in the back, Diop will likely come back to the side for this one, having been abandoned for Fabian Blabuena on Monday night.
Angelo Ogbonna (CB) – The Italian has been the constant at the center of defense this season, appearing in all 14 league games so far. It is a guaranteed starter.
Aaron Cresswell (LB) – While Arthur Masuaku is still not in contention, Moyes will continue with four at the back, and West Ham mainstay Cresswell will feature on the left.
Declan Rice (CM) – Another permanent fixture on the West Ham side, Rice has the fourth-highest tackle and interceptions (62) in the league this season, which makes him crucial for the team.
Thomas Soucek (CM) – The Czech international has become a fan favorite at West Ham and will look to build on his three Premier League goals this season.

Said Benrahma (CAM) – Having been ruled out against Chelsea, the Algerian could return to the squad in place of Mark Noble, who failed to make an impact in the 3-0 defeat.
Pablo Fornals (LM) – The Spaniard is another who has played in all of his side’s Premier League games so far, and will likely continue his run in the starting XI.
Sébastien Haller (ST) – The striker hasn’t had the best career at London Stadium but has found the net three times this season, scoring a few goals along the way. He will have another chance on Sunday afternoon.
