Pedro Obiang and Arthur Masuaku have been brought into West Ham United's starting lineup, while Shane Duffy is passed fit for Brighton & Hove Albion.

Pedro Obiang and Arthur Masuaku have been brought into West Ham United's starting lineup for this evening's Premier League meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The duo return to the starting lineup as boss Slaven Bilic's only two changes from the 1-1 draw against Burnley last weekend, replacing Aaron Cresswell and the suspended Andy Carroll.

Obiang will be utilised in central midfield, allowing Manuel Lanzini to move into a more advanced position just off lone striker Javier Hernandez, who has shaken off a hamstring problem to feature from the off.

Diafra Sakho and James Collins both miss out on squad selection entirely due to injury, meanwhile, as United target a place in the top half of the table with victory.

In terms of the visitors, manager Chris Hughton has been given a big boost with the news than centre-back Shane Duffy is fit to start after limping off with a groin strain in the 1-1 draw with Everton five days ago.

Hughton brings Gaeten Bong and summer acquisition Jose Izquierdo into the starting XI, with Solly March and Markus Suttner dropping down to the bench at the London Stadium.

Brighton have won just one of their last seven league games away to West Ham, losing four of those.

West Ham United: Hart; Masuaku, Reid, Fonte, Zabaleta; Kouyate, Obiang; Arnautovic, Lanzini, Antonio; Hernandez
Subs: Cresswell, Adrian, Noble, Ayew, Ogbonna, Byram, Fernandes

Brighton & Hove Albion: Ryan; Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Stephens, Propper; Knockaert, Izquierdo, Gross; Murray
Subs: Goldson, March, Schelotto, Krul, Suttner, Brown, Molumby
