West Ham have made just one change to their starting XI for the away match against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The Hammers travel to the Riverside for a Premier League clash and will be looking for a positive away result.

Slaven Bilic has decided to make just one alteration to his team from the side that won 3-0 against Crystal Palace in their last match.

Sam Byram has replaced team-mate James Collins in the defence as he drops to the bench.

West Ham have announced their starting line-up on their official Twitter account.
