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

While Maxwel Cornet is set to be sidelined for “a few weeks”, David Moyes has no fresh injury concerns as he names an unchanged West Ham side to face former club Everton this afternoon

Cornet has been only a bit-part player throughout an injury-plagued season-and-a-half at the club and missed Monday night’s 4-2 win over Brentford with a hamstring problem.

Aaron Cresswell was also missing for that contest but Moyes confirmed in his press conference on Friday that the left-back is fit for the trip to Goodison Park and he is named on the bench.

“Cresswell felt his calf and Achilles before the Brentford game, so we didn't want to risk him,” Moyes said. “Cornet pulled his hamstring a bit in training and might be out for a few weeks.”

Moyes has Kalvin Phillips back from a one-match suspension but the England midfielder has to settle for a place among the substitutes, with the Hammers boss unwilling to change a winning team after a poor start to 2024.

Lucas Paqueta came through his comeback from a calf problem without alarm and is fit to continue in a reunited front three alongside Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus.

West Ham XI: Areola, Coufal, Mavropanos, Zouma, Emerson, Soucek, Alvarez, Ward-Prowse, Kudus, Paqueta, Bowen

Subs: Fabianski, Johnson, Cresswell, Antonio, Phillips, Ings, Ogbonna, Aguerd, Mubama.

Time and date: 3pm GMT on Saturday 2 March, 2024

Venue: Goodison Park
