West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has named two changes for his side’s clash at home to Liverpool on Sunday.
Bilic’s side come into the clash on the back of a surprising 1-0 victory which ended Tottenham’s title hopes and also secured the Hammers’ Premier League safety.
However, the Croatian manager has a number of key players missing through injury, including two from their last outing.
Cheikhou Kouyate and Mark Noble are ruled out, while Bilic must also contend with the absences of Andy Carroll, Michail Antonio and Angelo Ogbonna among others.
26-year-old Havard Nordtveit and Edimilson Fernandes come in for Koyate and Noble in the only changes made by boss Bilic.
The Hammers named their starting XI via their official Twitter account.

Adrian continues in goal and will be hoping to secure his fourth straight clean sheet, while Jose Fonte, Winston Reid and James Collins line up in front of him.
Aaron Cresswell and Sam Byram continue on the flanks, while Noble and Kouyate are replaced in the centre by Nordveit and Fernandes.
Jonathan Calerri continues up top, assisted by Andre Ayew and Manuel Lanzini.
The Hammers were held to a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture at Anfield in December, when goals from Dimitri Payet and Michail Antonio had given Bilic’s side a 2-1 lead after Adam Lallana’s early strike, before Divock Origi equalised just after half time.
West Ham have not suffered defeat to the Reds since a 2-0 defeat back in January 2015, a run which stretches 5 matches across all competitions.
West Ham’s final game of the season sees them travel up North to Burnley on Sunday 21 May.
In other West Ham transfer news, Bilic has done this in an attempt to sign Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe.
