How West Ham are expected to line up against Derby in the FA Cup today
est Ham are without Kurt Zouma, Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet for today’s FA Cup trip to League One side Derby.
Danny Ings is another absence after suffering an unfortunate injury during his debut for the club last weekend, though would have been cup-tied anyway having already played for Aston Villa during their shock loss to Stevenage.
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, David Moyes has confirmed he is confident the striker will not miss “too much” of what remains 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.
Predicted West Ham XI: Areola; Coufal, Ogbonna, Aguerd, Emerson; Rice, Soucek, Paqueta; Bowen, Antonio, Benrahma
