Team News: Andy Carroll returns for West Ham United

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic recalls Andy Carroll into his starting lineup for this afternoon's Premier League clash with Swansea City.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has recalled Andy Carroll into his starting lineup for this afternoon's Premier League clash with Swansea City at the London Stadium.

Carroll was only named among the subs for last weekend's 3-2 defeat to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, but came on in the first half as a replacement for the injured Michail Antonio.

Antonio has recovered in time to start again this weekend, though, while Javier Hernandez and Andre Ayew are also amongst the attacking threat as Marko Arnautovic misses out.

Angelo Ogbonna is the other player to drop out of the side in two changes for the Hammers, who begin the day in the relegation zone following last weekend's defeat.

Swansea, meanwhile, welcome captain Leon Britton into the starting lineup for only the second time this season after he recovered from a knee injury.

The veteran will partner returning loanee Renato Sanches in the middle of the park this afternoon as Swansea boss Paul Clement makes three changes to the side beaten by Watford last time out.

Striker Tammy Abraham also comes back into an attacking lineup which includes Wilfried Bony and Jordan Ayew - the latter of whom will be playing against his brother this afternoon.

West Ham United: Hart; Zabaleta, Reid, Fonte, Cresswell; Kouyate, Noble, Antonio; Ayew, Hernandez, Carroll
Subs: Adrian, Byram, Masuaku, Ogbonna, Rice, Lanzini, Sakho

Swansea City: Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson; Britton, Sanches, Carroll; Ayew, Bony, Abraham
Subs: Nordfeldt, Van der Hoorn, Rangel, Roque Mesa, Clucas, Fer, Narsingh
