West Ham are set to name an unchanged starting line-up for their clash with West Brom at the Hawthorns on the Saturday, according to a club insider.
ExWHUEmployee, a reliable source of Hammers information, claimed on his personal Twitter account on Friday evening that there is one change on the bench which sees Sam Byram axed to be replaced by Marko Arnautovic.
Arnautovic, 28, has been suspended for the last three games after he was sent off in the 3-2 loss at Southampton in August but it seems he won’t be back into Slaven Bilic’s starting line-up and will have to make do on the bench.
The Austria international signed from Stoke in the summer for a club record fee and it is understood that he will replace defender Bryam, 23, on the bench.
The right-back is yet to feature in the Premier League this season having failed to appear off the bench on three previous occasions.
West Ham got their first league win of the season on Monday when they eased past Huddersfield.
Pedro Obiang and Andre Ayew, who came off the bench, both scored in a 2-0 win which lifted some of the pressure off Irons boss Bilic, who was no doubt desperate to get some points on the board having seen Frank de Boer sacked by Crystal Palace prior to kick off.
In other West Ham news, it has been revealed when Manuel Lanzini will return to action.
