West Ham face the unenviable trip to Anfield to face Liverpool this weekend without their talismanic striker Michail Antonio, who is absent with a hamstring problem.
However, far be it a psychological disadvantage to the opponents, as their hosts themselves will be without both Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho, who had been covering at centre-back.
The Hammers have started the 2020/21 campaign in a strong manner and will be confident heading into the match after back-to-back draws with Tottenham and Manchester City in the last two fixtures.
Despite the home side’s injury concerns, those of a claret and blue persuasion will be all too aware a visit to Anfield is far from a given for three points.
With Said Benrahma and Craig Dawson seemingly short of match fitness and still awaiting West Ham debuts, here’s how we think Moyes will line his side up on Saturday…
GK - Lukas Fabianski
Outstanding in the latter stages against Manchester City and unchallenged as number one
RB - Vladimir Coufal
Continued good performances from the Czech international and has cemented himself in the position
CB - Fabian Balbuena
Likely to have done enough to retain his place in a resolute defensive display last weekend
CB - Angelo Ogbonna
Headed everything clear against City and remains a linchpin at the heart of the Hammers defence
CB - Aaron Cresswell
Adapting well to his new role and could well have found a new niche for himself long-term
LB - Arthur Masuaku
Arguably put in a man of the match display last time out and thriving outside of Cresswell
CDM - Declan Rice
Statistically impressive against City and worked hard to contain a midfield brimming with quality
CDM - Tomas Soucek
Forging a reliable partnership alongside Rice as both men cover plenty of ground
RW - Jarrod Bowen
Made his Irons debut in this fixture last term and will be wanting to get back to goalscoring form after a couple of hard-working displays
LW - Pablo Fornals
Should retain his place, for now, as Said Benrahma continues to build up his match sharpness. Could be busy keeping a lid on Trent Alexander-Arnold
CF - Sebastien Haller
The beneficiary from the Antonio injury. What better match to kick-start your West Ham career
