West Ham boss David Moyes has kept with a five-man defence for tonight’s FA Cup tie against Derby.

The Hammers are without Kurt Zouma, Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet and Danny Ings is another absentee after suffering an unfortunate injury during his debut for the club last weekend - though would have been cup-tied anyway.

Zouma had only recently returned following knee surgery but has now picked up a hip problem, while Scamacca is not far off a return.


Regarding Ings, meanwhile, Hammers boss David Moyes has confirmed he is confident that the striker will not miss “too much” of what remains of this season despite a knee problem suffered against Everton.

While West Ham’s Premier League form has been a worry all season, defeat at Derby would pile even more pressure on Moyes, so a strong team is expected at Pride Park tonight.

West Ham XI: Areola; Johnson, Ogbonna, Kehrer, Aguerd, Emerson; Downes, Soucek, Fornals; Bowen, Antonio.

Subs: Fabianski, Coufal, Cresswell, Laing, Rice, Lanzini, Paqueta, Benrahma, Mubama.
