West Ham welcome Manchester City to London Stadium today with Said Benrahma missing out on the squad entirely.
The Algerian scored twice in last weekend’s 4-0 thrashing of Norwich but was forced off injured after appearing to hurt his ankle while kicking the ground and left Carrow Road on crutches.
“Said’s a little bit of a question mark, he’s been back out doing some light jogging,” Hammers boss David Moyes said on Friday. “Not quite as bad as we thought but he’s not quite as good as being fit.”
Michail Antonio and Craig Dawson were both also forced off injured in the Norwich game but are fit and in the starting line-up.
Today’s match will be Mark Noble’s last in front of a home crowd ahead of his retirement at the end of the campaign and the midfielder will be honoured both before and after kick-off. It remains to be seen whether Moyes brings him on for a cameo appearance off the bench.
