Michail Antonio is back on the West Ham bench after recovering from his hamstring injury for the trip to Leicester City.

Antonio could probably have been named on the bench against Everton at the weekend but Moyes did not want to risk the 29-year-old, who recently returned after three months out with a serious hamstring issue and has struggled with hamstring problems in the past.

Darren Randolph continues in goal following a solid display against Everton in his first game back at West Ham.

Felipe Anderson is available for the game at the King Power and Ryan Fredericks remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Moyes switched to four at the back against Everton but he looks to have reverted to a three-man defence against a Leicester side who have stuttered this year and have lost their last two matches.

Leicester lineup: Schmeichel, Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Mendy, Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy

Subs: Justin, Morgan, Gray, Albrighton, Ward, Iheanacho, Ndidi

West Ham lineup: Randolph, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Snodgrass, Rice, Noble, Masuaku, Lanzini, Haller

Subs: Reid, Balbuena, Sanchez, Fornals, Martin, Ajeti, Antonio
