West Ham hope for back-to-back Premier League wins against Sheffield United on Sunday

Hammers look to continue their encouraging Premier League form streak at Bramall Lane this afternoon

David Moyes’ side scored a dramatic late victory over Fulham in their last game before the international break – a victory that came after a series of deadly matches in which they sidelined Leicester and took points from Tottenham and Manchester City

West Ham will undoubtedly enjoy their chances for back-to-back successes against Sheffield United, which sit at the bottom of the table after an unhappy start to the 2020/21 campaign

The winless Blades have taken just one point in their first eight games this season and are 12 top-flight games without a win in total, dating back to last season

The ‘second season syndrome’ cliché seems to be a reality for Chris Wilder’s men, who admittedly endured their own horror streak and took the lead against Chelsea last time around before succumbing to a 4-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge

West Ham haven’t won at Bramall Lane in 52 years – will that race end this afternoon?

With kick-off scheduled for 2pm GMT, follow all the preparation and match steps with the Standard Sport LIVE blog below…

In his pre-game interview with Sky Sports, David Moyes admits that Michail Antonio was « about » to make the West Ham squad today

He said they could have rushed him to the bench, but added that it would have been a risk

David Moyes has been extremely impressed with Declan Rice’s recent performances in England and says the 21-year-old all-rounder is rising to the challenges he faces in terms of increased leadership and responsibility

« The most important thing is that he’s improving with the team here – it’s been great, » said Moyes. « He’s learning a lot from those close to him. His performance for England was exceptional – there had a lot of young English players on the pitch but his performance was so good

« He matures He takes good people, like Mark Noble I think from Declan’s point of view he continues to learn – see what good leaders look like We try to get him to take more leadership, more responsibility , and it certainly does « 

David Moyes had decided to stick with what worked in recent weeks as the Hammers remain unchanged since the victory over Fulham

The West Ham boss has warned of Michail Antonio’s risk following his hamstring injury, which appears to be the right choice

With his struggles in the past after hamstring issues and with such a busy schedule, it seems wise to take it regularly

As for Sheffield United, Chris Wilder makes three changes to the 4-1 defeated Chelsea side ahead of the international break

Chelsea Loanee Ethan Ampadu arrives with fit-again John Fleck, with Oli McBurnie drafted up front alongside David McGoldrick

Enda Stevens is out, but John Egan starts up and Rhian Brewster is fit enough to be named a replacement

So Antonio completely misses West Ham again, with Moyes presumably deciding that bringing him back too early is just not worth the risk.

However, Ogbonna and Balbuena both start defensively in an unchanged XI, with Sebastien Haller leading once again

On the bench, Ryan Fredericks and Andriy Yarmolenko are replaced by Ben Johnson and Mark Noble

Michail Antonio’s return in any capacity would be a huge boost for West Ham, but, with another eventful period of games between now and the New Years, there is no point in risking him for himself. he is not quite ready to play
